Executive Headteacher's Welcome

I am very honoured to welcome you to Danetree Primary School. This website has been constructed to give you a flavour of what our school has to offer your child. It is such a pleasure to have been able to lead my team of amazing staff and wonderful children since the beginning of the 2017 academic year.

Danetree is a four form entry school set in fantastic grounds in West Ewell, Epsom. Our forward thinking approach and dedicated staff aim to provide the best education for our children, bringing learning to life through our innovative thematic curriculum.  When combined with our varied menu of clubs and activities, Danetree is an exciting place for your child and I am personally looking forward to the continuous strive to improve the school further over the coming years.

We are happy to be an Academy within GLF Schools, which sees us benefit from sharing outstanding resources, facilities and support from local primary and secondary schools since October 2010.

We want to unlock the potential of every child to help them to achieve both in their learning and as they grow into young people, so lessons are planned to be interactive and engaging to promote children’s independent learning skills as well as working cohesively and collaboratively.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly, welcoming school. If you have not already visited, please do come and see the children at work. Our classrooms are filled with books, resources and creative displays to promote high quality learning to support children in each and every lesson.

I look forward to welcoming you to Danetree Primary School in the near future.

Bethan Smith,

Executive Headteacher
