Discovery Primary School is open as normal.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused today, however, the School was left with no choice but to evacuate after receiving a threat which has now been found to be a hoax. We followed all the procedures and worked closely with the Police and other emergency services to get back into School as quickly as possible. Discovery Primary School was not declared safe until 2.55 pm. We worked as quickly as we could to make parents aware of the situation through social media, local media and by using the Voyager computer system. To clarify, we used The Voyager computer system to access our own pupil database to phone parents.
We appreciate that some of you were concerned that we could not contact you as quickly as you would of liked, and we will be looking at this following today’s incident. Please be reassured that our priority at all times was to ensure the safety of all the children and staff.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the pupils and staff at the Voyager for their assistance throughout the day which included giving the children drinks and in many cases lunch.
Welcome from the Head Teacher
The aim at Discovery Primary school is to provide an outstanding education and care for our children. We work hard to involve families in all aspects of life within the school and are proud of our community work. We strive to create an atmosphere which encourages children to want to come to school and an environment which is exciting and stimulating. We are concerned with their feelings and how they get on with one another and with adults. We endeavour to give each child an exciting, broad and balanced curriculum as well as developing his or her confidence and independence enabling them to acquire control of their own learning and behaviour. Our website with its photos, children's work, Twitter and news updates should give you a picture of life at our school but do please come and see us at work and discover how your child could thrive here. Ms Siequien, Head Teacher
Welcome from the Head Boys and Head Girl
Discovery Primary School is an amazing school. It has a happy and healthy environment with good teachers. Everyone makes you feel welcome and everyone is kind. We have a special friendship bench and we do lots of good things at the school. We have loads of educational trips to help us learn new things, and use a lot of ICT to help us learn. We also have an outdoor trim trail, a gym, and clubs like football and art club. As head boys and girl, we would like to help people be happy and to know that if they have any problems we are available for them to talk to. Bobby, Akash, and Ellie
