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
Although it is still November, the shops are already playing ‘seasonal songs’ and are full of Christmas goods. Not to be left behind, Daubeney is busy getting ready for the festive season. The school Christmas tree has been ordered; the PTFA is organising the Christmas Fayre; preparations are well underway for our annual carol concert, to be held once again at Kempston East Methodist Church and ‘Harmonise’ (our singing group) have been invited to perform at the Salvation Army concert at the Bedford Corn Exchange. As if this was not enough, Year 6 pupils are looking forward to their trip to the Derngate Theatre, Northampton, to see the pantomime ‘Peter Pan’.
The next PTFA meeting will take place at 6.30pm on Tuesday, 25th November. All parents/carers are welcome to attend.
Our carol concert will take place on Wednesday, 10th December, and we would love to see you there, whether or not your child is performing.
Parents/carers of those children involved in ‘Harmonise’ will be getting a letter outlining arrangements for the Salvation Army concert very shortly, so please look out for this.
For those of you looking beyond Christmas and planning future family holidays, the school’s term dates for 2015 and 2016 can now be found on the ‘Term Dates’ page of this website.
