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.
Whether you are a visitor, parent/carer or pupil, we hope that you will find a warm welcome at Durham Lane Primary School. Our aim is to provide a safe, supportive and challenging environment where everybody has the opportunity to reach their full potential as learners. We believe that this can only be achieved if a child feels happy and secure, and our staff work hard to provide this environment for our pupils.
Here at Durham Lane Primary School, we are extremely proud to say that we provide a welcoming environment not only for our children, but to all that are involved in our school community. All staff work extremely hard to provide an excellent environment for our children to allow them to thrive academically, emotionally and socially. First and foremost, our aim is to ensure there are plenty of opportunities for children to reach their full potential. All teachers and non-teaching staff work extremely hard to provide this. But most importantly, our children enjoy their school journey, feel safe and look forward to their day.
Durham Lane offers teaching of extremely high standard and staff work together to ensure that every child reaches their full potential. Exemplary behaviour is something we are very proud of and we believe that our high standards and expectations are the key to our success. We offer an ‘open door policy’ and parents are always very welcome and encouraged to talk to a staff member if they have any concerns with regards to their children, education, health or well-being.
I look forward to meeting you in the near future.

“Where children and families come first”
Ofsted November 2022
Durham Lane Primary School continues to be a good school.
What is it like to attend this school?
At Durham Lane Primary School, pupils come first.
Pupils say, ‘We act like one big family. We are kind and look out for each other. No one is
left out and everyone feels supported’. This typifies the views of many. Behaviour is good
and pupils can focus on their learning, without distraction.
