Deansfield Primary School is a values based community.

We believe our values are the foundations on which learning takes place, a sense of community is promoted and children develop as a whole person.

Our values are promoted in the everyday life of the school. They are also reflected on regularly in assemblies. Each month we focus on one value.

Our value for October is Co-operation.

In the first whole school assembly we heard about the owners of small boats who co-operated to evacuate soldiers from the beaches of Dunkirk in Operation Dynamo.
