Please read our latest Ofsted report, November 2017. Nominate Deighton Gates Primary School for The Co-op Local Community Fund and help us to make storytelling a magical experience for our children. What parents say about Deighton Gates... I would like to take this time to thank you and your staff for the wonderful school and learning environment you have created. Our son has thoroughly enjoyed his time at Deighton Gates and I have equally enjoyed being a part of such a nurturing and friendly school. "I can see how much he has improved with his reading, writing and maths in one year. Fantastic!" "Thank you for making our daughter's first year at Deighton Gates so enjoyable. You have really sparked a love for learning and an interest in the world. Thank you for taking such good care of her and helping her to grow."

Spring 1 Highlights


What a fantastic half term we have had! This half term we have planted our very own beanstalks, tasted new fruit and vegetables, made Magic Wand Fruit Kebabs and even printed with vegetables! This is not to mention how hard we have been working in Literacy and Maths, writing our own set of instructions, using adventurous adjectives, counting on and investigating with weighing scales! We've even had a trip to a multi sports tournament AND had time to squeeze in a Yoga adventure with the Hungry Caterpillar!
