Denby Dale First & Nursery School

Welcome to our school.

I am extremely proud to lead a high quality team of staff and governors, who are committed to achieving high standards and providing the very best opportunities for all the children in our care, aged from 2-10 years old.

All schools have their own distinctive ethos which makes each one unique.  We see ourselves as a 'big, little school':

  • Like the other First schools in the Shelley pyramid, our classes go from Reception to Year 5, after which children transfer to a local Middle school.  Unlike most local First schools, ours has a 'single form entry', with one class per year. 
  • We are lucky to have extensive grounds, which support the children's learning and provide a year round resource.  We also benefit from quality indoor space which is bright and attractive with displays that reflect the breadth of the curriculum. 
  • Our school's ethos reflects our caring, friendly atmosphere and our creative and innovative approach to each child.  

If you're considering our school for your child please come and see us in action and meet the staff and children.  Call Mrs Lewis on 01484 866071 to arrange your visit.
