Welcome to Downsview Primary and Nursery School.

'Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.‘ -Aristotle

Visitors to Downsview quickly experience the warmth, energy and positivity of parents, children and staff. Strong relationships here are built on kindness, care and mutual respect and give rise to a valuable sense of community.

We aim to nurture the ‘whole child’ – body, mind and spirit. To this end, classroom learning focuses as much attention on how children learn as on what they learn. Children are encouraged to be ambitious and creative, to explore their learning in depth and push themselves to excel in a wide variety of pursuits.

We recognise that for children to thrive they need to learn to sustain their curiosity and so we embrace innovative approaches to teaching. We want the children to have memorable experiences on their journey to becoming confident, life-long learners. We seek to support all individuals to follow their own passions, whatever they may be, and so build their self-esteem and assurance.

As well as providing a strong academic platform from which to grow, our philosophy is to help children to find their own way towards living a life of purpose and fulfillment. We value and appreciate every single child for what they can bring to our community and offer a safe and trusting environment to enable them to flourish and succeed as they prepare for their future in a fast-changing world.

The link between home and school is integral to your child’s success and we wholeheartedly encourage parents to take an active part in their child's learning and in the life of the school.
