Welcome to Danesfield Manor School, Pre-Reception and Nursery. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Our website provides you with lots of information, however, it is not until you come along and visit our school in person that you will fully appreciate the warm, friendly feel of our happy community where we support everyone to aim for excellence in all we do.
Danesfield Manor School is a one form entry school educating boys and girls from the age of 2 – 11 years of age. We welcome families of all faiths and beliefs and enjoy promoting an awareness of cultures all around the world with the help of our whole community.
Our small class numbers mean pupils really get to know one another well, forming meaningful friendships with children not only in their own year group, but also with children all throughout the school. Likewise, our staff get to know every pupil well; treating them as if they were their own.
With our broad and balanced curriculum, strong values and growth mindset approach to learning, we empower our pupils with excellent knowledge, extensive vocabulary and innate confidence. We believe that a values based education enriches our teaching and learning, allows our pupils to achieve beyond their own expectations and prepares them for their life-long journey beyond Danesfield. Our pupils learn to tackle challenges using our growth mindset approach; their resilience becomes stronger and their ability to cope with real life situations is another important part of our teaching and learning.
Our pupils are assessed regularly. Staff identify where and how to support and challenge every child. Pupils demonstrating talent in various subjects are recognised and stretched accordingly. Likewise, the support and strategies to overcome needs is also provided through our Learning Support and Challenge Team.
We help our families with the (sometimes daunting) senior school selection process by working together to carefully select a school that is right for their child and their family. We embrace the fact that we all have different skills and interests; there is a school out there that will be a perfect fit for your child and we help you find it.
Please do contact us to arrange a tour at a convenient time to suit you and your family, I would love the opportunity to show you around our warm and friendly school in Walton-on-Thames.
