Over the year we celebrate all manner of achievement: in the classroom, on the sports field, in the swimming pool and across the community.
We applaud the achievements of our pupils, acknowledging that each child is an individual and should be proud of themselves and their accomplishments. Click here for a few examples of pupils' individual successes
We are very proud of our school teams who consistently participate in a range of sports matches. This year our swimming squads achieved a place at the semi-finals of the national schools’ swimming trials.
We enjoy taking part in community events and were pleased to be a part of the local Christmas celebrations in the town centre again this year. Pupils from Danesfield Manor make annual visits to the elderly in our community, singing favourite songs and performing small drama pieces.
Music and drama offer pupils excellent opportunities to build confidence and public speaking skills. All our pupils perform in school productions every year. This year the Key Stage 2 pupils put on a great performance of ‘The Wind in the Willows'; the dress rehearsal was again attended by special guests from our local community.
There is an active school council, made up from pupil-elected delegates from each class, which holds regular lunchtime meetings to discuss issues important to pupils. These include issues in the school – playground facilities, lunchtime, toilets, uniforms, etc. – and the children’s role in the wider world.
The school council adopts a charity each year, and organises sponsored activities in support of its chosen charity. Charities chosen by our School Council are:
2005/06 - Macmillan Trust
2006/07 - Lepra
2007/08 - Water Aid
2008/09 - Sam Beare Hospice
2009/10 - The New Jerusalem Children’s Home
