Darite Primary Academy is well known for its warm welcome and friendly atmosphere. We take great care to provide a happy, safe environment where children feel secure to play, have fun, explore, experiment, develop confidence and curiosity, and learn. There is an excellent educational programme that is appropriate to the children’s age and stage of development.

Thank-you to everyone!

As we draw close to the end of another amazing year at Darite, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of the people who make Darite the stunning school it is.

We are a small school and as such, need to, and do, work closely together for the benefit of the children. Without the parents and carers, we would be unable to offer so many fantastic clubs and opportunities for trips and experiences. Thanks to Mrs Evett in the office without who messages, organisation and the key administration jobs would not be done. Special thanks go to the amazing teachers and teaching assistants who make learning at Darite so much fun. Thanks also to the governors and trust for their challenge and support. Most of all, thanks to all the wonderful children who come to our school with a smile, a wave and amazing stories to tell. You make the school such a wonderful place to work each day. 

Can we take this opportunity to wish everyone a relaxing summer break and we will see everyone back at school on the 5th of September.
