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
The end of term assembly on Friday, 4th April, was an opportunity for the whole school to say, ‘Thank you’ to Mr Grant-Jones, for keeping the Music department in good order this term, in preparation for Mrs Kirton, who will join us as our new Music Co-ordinator after Easter. This was also the time for us all to say, ‘Merci et bonne chance de nous tous!’ to Madame Williams, who has taught French at Daubeney for 24 years.
Last week I told you pupils raised over £500 for Children in Need and wondered whether those raising money, by running or cycling, for Sport Relief might reach that target. I am pleased to be able to tell you, before all the sponsorship money has been collected, the figure already stands at over £400. Well done, once again, to all those who took part. As if this wasn’t enough, sales at the school book fair have resulted in £850 worth of books for the school library being donated.
I will take this opportunity to wish you all a relaxing Easter break.
