The Downs C Of E Primary School

Amazing school for my kids. Not sure how the adult reviewers can think their experience of the school when they were pupils applies to the school as it is now. It has changed dramatically over the years. I know. I was a pupil there! The school takes great care over its pupils. My viewpoints are taken into account. The teachers understand and support my children exceptionally well. The school has gone beyond the call of duty in its care towards my children.

Amazing school teachers are excellent! Really impressed. My children were so happy there.
