Where children and families come first

Welcome To Durham Lane Primary School

I am delighted to welcome you to the Durham Lane website.  Our school prospectus and school website are full of useful information about the school, its ethos, organisation and staffing. We hope you find it helpful. My vision is that Durham Lane Primary School is a centre for excellence, serving our children, their families and the community as best we can, making sure they achieve and succeed.  

Our school is a special place full of learning, laughter and friendship where everyone is happy, feels safe and is valued. We enjoy the present, but look to the future – and aspire to equip our children with the skills, curiosity and resilience they need to continue learning throughout their lives.  

Our children deserve the best from this school. Our duty is to provide it.

30hrs FREE CHILDCARE PROVISION

We are delighted to announce that we will be offering 30 hour provision from January 2021. The children will continue with their morning placements, but we are now able to offer some flexibility for afternoon Nursery provision and before and afterschool provision. We are currently at the planning stage for staffing, however, we can confirm that Mrs Khan, the Early Years Leader, will be planning the curriculum with a member of staff supporting her to deliver the teaching and learning in the Nursery environment.

As we enter week 3 of this enforced period of alternative schooling, I feel it is timely to explain to you how proud I feel towards the children and parents who are working from home.

Parents and children who are home schooling have become 'Superheros'. I am astounded by your effort, determination and resilience and I just wanted to say a big thank you!

You are all doing such an incredible job!

A huge shout out from me to the staff who are keeping everyone well supplied with work and support! They won't sing their own praises so I'm doing it. Teaching, in effect, two classes each is not what their job description says. Well done everyone, and just remember it's OK to stop for breath. 🙂

Massive well done to the home schoolers and parents, also a big well done to those who are still having to go out to work in these uncertain times and have no other option. Very anxious and hard time for all. Everyone is doing amazing 💕

I completely agree, however I think it is also important to acknowledge the families who are having to use a school place because of their circumstances, and how different school is for those children, and how well they are also doing. I’m sure those families would much prefer not to have to take a school place at this time, and they are also doing their best under very challenging circumstances.

A huge thank you too to all of the school staff who are continuing to do all of this with a smile and who provide interesting and purposeful activities for our children. I am a teacher and a parent of a child learning from home and see this from both sides, neither of which is a situation any of us would choose at the minute. Durham Lane have been fantastic and the continued communication and information for families is much appreciated. Stay safe 🌈

Great job guys!

Over the last few weeks, the children in school have been enjoying story time with Mrs Gregory. We have shared the Twits and now we have just finished 'The diary of the killer cat!' by Anne Fine.

Please see attached some of the amazing art work the children have produced of their own 'killer cat'.
