We are a school committed to celebrating our community and enjoying strong, collaborative partnerships. We learn about the history of our school and work to create our own memories. The village of Enderby was originally a Danish Settlement, hence the name of the school, Danemill Primary. The school was originally built in 1965 as a junior school, the local infant school was based on Townsend Road and in 2013 the two schools merged onto one site.
At Danemill we believe that a happy child is a child who will enjoy learning in a positive, inclusive, and fun environment. Our aim is to ensure that each and every child fulfils their potential and is ready for the next stage in their education. Our key learning values are woven throughout our curriculum, curiosity, communication, reflection, resilience, motivation, creativity, collaboration, and bravery.
Danemill is proud to be a part of Discovery Schools Multi Academy Trust. The Trust consists of thirteen schools who work closely in partnership together for the benefit of all of our children. We also enjoy working in partnership with the Affinity Teaching School Alliance and our local family of schools including the local secondary school.
