Welcome to Daubeney Academy
It is with great pride that we welcome you to Daubeney’s website. We place great importance on our contacts and partnership with parents, as together we can make a positive difference to a child’s development, and our website is one of a number of avenues of communication.
Daubeney is a purpose-built Academy, for pupils aged 9 to 13, and our accommodation includes a well stocked Library; ICT suites; Sport hall; Music room (with a suite of practice rooms); two Science laboratories and dedicated Art, Design and Food and Fabrics rooms.
We aim to provide a caring, secure and supportive environment with emphasis on encouragement and praise, offering all of our pupils the opportunity to grow and develop into successful young adults.
We give all pupils opportunities, both social and educational, that extend beyond the classroom. We do this because we know that such activities aid their development as well as being enjoyable in their own right. It is always pleasing to note the large number of our pupils who take up these extra activities, and to see the enjoyment they gain from them.
We would be grateful for your feedback about what you find useful on this website and any new features you would like to be included in the future, to enable us to improve the information available to you. Contact us >>
The best way to find out more about us is to visit the school. Please contact us on 01234 400111 should you wish to arrange an appointment.
Head Teacher's Bulletin
As last week, I find myself keen to thank numerous people who have generously given of their time, their money or their talents (and, in some cases, all three).
Firstly, I would like to thank all those who contributed to the success of our Christmas carol concert, which took place on Wednesday. Special mention must go to Mrs Kirton, our Music Co-ordinator, but also to Miss Deards and Miss Saunders. Members of Kempston East Methodist Church gave freely of their time to host this highlight of our calendar; parents and staff gave up their evening to support the children and the pupils themselves rewarded us all with their spirited singing, playing and readings. A very enjoyable time was had by all involved and I thank you all sincerely.
Secondly, my grateful thanks to the PTFA members, together with other parents, pupils and staff who contributed to the fun and seasonal atmosphere of Thursday’s Christmas Fayre. The refreshments kept flowing throughout the event to help ward off the seasonally cold temperatures outside! Congratulations to all those who won raffle prizes: sadly, I wasn’t one of them!
Christmas is a time when there are more pressures to spend money than usual and this can be particularly difficult for families with young children. It has been very impressive, therefore, to see the large number of donations which we have received for the school’s appeal on behalf of Bedford Hospital’s Primrose (cancer) unit. On their behalf, as well as my own, I thank you all for your generosity.
