Welcome from Mrs A Waters


A very warm welcome is extended to you and your child from all the Staff and Governors at Durand Primary School.
I hope that you will enjoy being part of our school community and that your son / daughter will remember their school with pleasure and affection.

We believe it is important that as a parent / guardian you feel welcome in the school.
Education is a partnership between home and school with a shared responsibility based on trust and mutual understanding.
The co-operation and participation of parents with our school in the education of their child is positively encouraged.
A good relationship between school and home builds a child’s confidence, aids their learning and helps them to fulfil their potential in all areas.

This is a happy vibrant school where all children will be given the opportunity of learning in a caring, supportive and stimulating environment.
We aim to give your child the opportunity to develop to their full potential intellectually, morally, socially and spiritually.

Our welcome to you and your child is warm and on-going and we invite you as parents to support us in our work.
We also welcome any expertise or assistance you maybe able to offer us in delivering the best possible opportunities for our pupils.

I am always willing, as are my staff, to talk to parents at any mutually convenient time. I look forward to a happy and effective association over the coming years.
