The Learning for Life Proud to be part of The Learning for Life
Daven Primary 3

Headteacher's Welcome

Here at Daven, we are always very busy with lots of great learning opportunities and interesting things happening all of the time. Our school has been at the heart of our community for more than 100 years, and we are now seeing parents and even grandparents of our children that were once pupils of the school themselves. 

We include children in lots of the important decisions we make at Daven and we have a very active school council. They would like you to know about a few things that we do here that are really important to us: 

We are a Rights Respecting School 

Unicef works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. The Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens. Daven Primary School is proud that we have achieved the Silver award for being a Rights Respecting School. We are now working hard on achieving our gold accreditation. 

We develop our behaviors for learning using ‘Building Learning Power’ 

We recognize that each of us is responsible for ‘Being the best that we can be’ and that there are things that we can learn from every situation if we use the right behaviors for learning. Building Learning Power is a learning culture that encourages children and teachers to become better learners. It allows children to approach difficulties in learning without fear of failure. It allows the children to take small steps within learning and develops confidence.  

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find the information you are looking for, but feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have. If you are a prospective parent then you can contact the school office to arrange a visit to meet the staff and see the school in action.
