A sad farewell to Mrs Luxton

It is with great sadness that I let you know that this week was the last working one for Mrs Christine Luxton. Mrs Luxton has worked as a midday supervisor and cleaner at Delaware for an incredible 37 years and has also volunteered for other school tasks such as, learning readers. Just imagine how many scraped knees she has cleansed, tears she has dried, fall outs she has sorted give her a proper  food she has cut up! It is so sad that we have not been able to give her a proper 'send off' but we promised that we will as soon as we are able. I wish her a really happy retirement with her husband- thank you so much Chris for your dedication to the school.
So, we have reached the end of another half term in lockdown. I wanted to thank all of the parents for supporting their children so wonderfully with home learning- we are so appreciative of your continued efforts- hopefully it won't be for too much longer. I also wanted to thank all staff, whether they are based at home or at school. They have worked tirelessly to ensure that the remote learning happens and is as effective as possible. They have also cared for and taught the pupils who remain in school and have kept them safe, happy and learning.

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website. We hope that you will enjoy the opportunity to discover more about our school, nursery, wonderful staff and amazing children!

At Delaware we strive, in partnership with parents and carers, to offer our pupils a high standard of education which will help each child to reach their full potential. Our aim is to nurture the children in our care, providing them with safe but exciting environments and opportunities where they can develop a life-long love of learning. Our learning environments are bright, colourful and interactive and the pupils at Delaware are proud to share their learning and achievements. We accept children from aged 2 upwards. We have a beautiful nursery open from 7.15am – 6.00pm with funded/non funded sessions available.

Our school motto is summed up in three simple words which came about following discussions with the children about their learning. These are: Believe. Achieve. Enjoy. They sum up perfectly the positive mindset which we pride ourselves on- 'I can't do it' is NOT accepted at Delaware- it is corrected to 'I can't do it - YET!'

Learning at Delaware is FUN! We plan for rich and memorable learning opportunities for our pupils and work in close partnership with other schools in our neighbourhood and our Bridge family of schools. We became a part of the Bridge Schools Trust in December 2015 and are embracing the additional learning opportunities that this has provided.

We have developed ways of working so that there is a consistent approach across all classes. Please take a moment to read our GOOD Ofsted report from September 2018. My favourite quote is “Pupils love to learn and are truly valued at Delaware Primary Academy”.

We pride ourselves on being a happy, inclusive school- please visit to see what we have to offer you and your children. You are sure to receive a warm welcome!

Believe, Achieve, Enjoy!
