It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website. We hope that you will enjoy the opportunity to discover more about our school, wonderful staff and amazing children!
At Delaware we strive, in partnership with parents and carers, to offer our pupils a high standard of education which will help each child to reach their full potential. Our aim is to nurture the children in our care, providing them with safe but exciting environments and opportunities where they can develop a life-long love of learning. Our learning environments are bright, colourful and interactive and the pupils at Delaware are proud to share their learning and achievements.
Our school motto is summed up in three simple words which came about following discussions with the children about their learning. These are: Believe. Achieve. Enjoy. They sum up perfectly the positive mindset which we pride ourself on- 'I can't do it' is NOT accepted at Delaware- it is corrected to 'I can't do it - YET!'
Learning at Delaware is FUN! We plan for rich and memorable learning opportunities for our pupils and work in close partnership with other schools in our neighbourhood and our Bridge family of schools. We became a part of the Bridge Multi Academy Trust in December 2015 and are embracing the additional support and learning opportunities that this has provided- take a look at our Creative Arts page on the website for some examples of this partnership working.
We have developed ways of working so that there is a consistent approach across all classes and staff support one another to address areas for development from our last Ofsted inspection. Please take a moment to read our HMI and DfE monitoring reports or better still pop in and see for yourself the amazing progress that we have made.
We pride ourselves on being a happy, inclusive school- please visit to see what we have to offer you and your child/ren. You are sure to receive a warm welcome!
Believe, Achieve, Enjoy!
