Welcome to Our School
I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and hope that you find our school website of interest and that it gives you a flavour of what our school has to offer.
I am very proud to be the Principal of Daresbury Primary School, part of The Heath Family (NW) Trust. As a small rural school with 6 classes (2 mixed age) we are proud of our heritage and sense of community; pupils, parents, staff and Governors working together for one aim – to make this school the best it can be. We are proud of our reputation for being friendly, caring and welcoming, our educational standards and most importantly the high standards of behaviour and respect shown by our pupils. We endeavour to make our children's school experience both memorable and enjoyable whilst also equipping them with the attributes and wider skills to become successful citizens for the future. Our aim is to develop lifelong learners with passion and desire to develop and fulfil their potential. Our school is a happy and calm place to learn and develop; our school community is helpful, considerate and respectful of each other.
Children at Daresbury experience a broad and creative curriculum. We firmly believe that a good education requires a partnership between school and home: we believe that children learn best when home and school work together and support each other. We value parental involvement and work hard to develop strong links with all our parents to enable all pupils to promote high standards of behaviour, learning and attitudes so that every child can be the best that they can be.
As a school community we are proud of our school and would welcome the opportunity to share with you more about Daresbury Primary School. If you would like to visit us then please contact Mrs Staveley in the School Office to arrange an appointment as I would be delighted to show you around.

Sadly, due to COVID-19 restrictions we currently are not able to show prospective parents around our school. We have created two short welcome films which allow you to meet our senior leadership team, have a virtual tour of our site and see some of our classes in action. You can view these two films on our dropbox account by following the links below. We hope you find them useful. If you would like any further information please do contact the school. We look forward to welcoming you into the Daresbury family. Thank you for your patience and understanding at this difficult time.

Applications for a Place at the School
PRIMARY In-Year Application Form.pdf
Admission Appeals Timetable.pdf
Applications for in-year admissions (children transferring from another school) remain to be made directly with the school. Parents requesting information regarding place availability must be provided with this information and advised that they may make an application if they wish (even if places are not available), and provided with the attached form. The School Admissions Code states that any parent may apply for a place at any school, at any time, and where a parent is unsuccessful in gaining a place they must be advised in writing as to the reasons for the refusal (oversubscription of the year group requested) and offered the right to appeal against the decision. At Primary level the only reason for refusal would normally be oversubscription within the year group requested, unless the child has been permanently excluded from the school. No further information other than that gathered by the common application form should be used when making a decision regarding admission to the school.

Our school takes part in a project that runs jointly between Halton schools and Cheshire Police. This project is called Operation Encompass. It aims to support children who are affected by domestic violence by ensuring that their school is informed. This then allows the school to provide intervention and support the children. Our trained Key Adult is Mrs Carolyn Roberts, who liaises with the Police and uses the information to support our children. If you have any other questions about this project, please do not hesitate to contact school.
