Dean Field Community Primary school is situated in North Halifax; at the heart of the Ovenden community.

In January 2018 the school joined the Family of Learning Trust as a sponsored academy and I was appointed the Headteacher.

Since 2018 the school has developed a team who have worked hard to bring about rapid improvements in Teaching and Learning; in order to raise attainment across the school. We firmly believe in the importance and value of education and that every child has the right to access an education of excellence.

At Dean Field expectations are high and there is a relentless focus on improving the quality of education to ensure each and every child is able to maximise their potential and have their life chances significantly enhanced. The school’s motto is: Learning Without Limits.

Here at Dean Field we are extremely proud of the fact that we are a school at the heart of the community. We are here to serve pupils, families and the community and this is evident in everything that we do. We believe strongly in a healthy partnership between the home and the school; which will unlock each child’s full potential.

We are a friendly, caring school with high expectations for all our pupils. Our children are encouraged to explore, discover and question through a range of exciting learning opportunities both within and outside the classroom. Our curriculum is rich and inspiring and offers pupils a broad range of experiences and opportunities.

The staff endeavour to provide a calm and stimulating environment where good behaviour and mutual respect is modelled by everyone and where everyone is valued. Interwoven throughout our curriculum are our school values.  We encourage children to take risks and teach them that it is ok to fail.

If you would like to know more about Dean Field Community Primary School or The Family of Learning Trust, you are more than welcome to visit the school; I look forward to personally welcoming you.
