'Inspiring Minds and Shaping Futures'
Welcome to our Drapers Mills Primary Academy’s new website. We hope that it will showcase our talents and give you a small insight into school life.
The children, parents, staff, governors and our community are very proud of our successful and hardworking school which has served our local community for many years. We have a great deal to look back on with pride but we always enthusiastically challenge ourselves to continually enhance our provision for our children as they begin their lifelong learning journey.
The ethos of our school reflects the values and attitudes that characterise any caring family and community. The atmosphere of the school, the quality of relationships and the way in which the school helps to deal with difficulties all combine to develop children who will have a fair sense of justice and the ability to be valued citizens of the future.
At Drapers Mills Primary Academy we aim for our children to grow and develop in an environment where they are cared for, listened to and respected as well as being given consistent, secure and firm boundaries.We aim for our children to develop lifelong learning skills, showing the ability to take responsibility for their own learning so that they can face future challenges with confidence. We aim to ensure each day presents exciting challenges so creating a joy and thirst for knowledge in each individual child. We celebrate diversity and respect all children regardless of ability, gender, ethnicity or religion. We encourage children to recognise and build on their strengths, extending and developing their potential. We provide a happy, caring, supportive and positive learning atmosphere in our school where each child can achieve success.
Parents and visitors are invited to look around our school and where possible meet the staff and children. Our friendly office staff will only be too pleased to arrange an appointment. Please come and see our school in action.
