Information about the 2 Church Schools, Datchet St Mary's C of E Primary Academy (DSM), and Churchmead (Secondary) and one PNEU School can be found here.
St Mary's works closely with all 3, but as the primary school was established in 1843 by the then incumbent it has a particularly special relationship with DSM. All three schools hold services in church, attend the RBL Remembrance Service etc: each school engages in a unique way with St Mary's and work in partnership to contribute regularly to the wider community.
DSM recently, after exercising Due Diligence, joined the Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust. It is nestled in the heart of the village and provides wraparound care for pupils , with a Breakfast Club starting at 7:45am and the After School Club ending at 6pm. The school also host other activities such as Chelsea Football Club, Football Multi-skills, Chess, Hi Five Fitness, Street Dance, French and a fantastic Choir which gets invited to sing at local village events such as the Village Fete, Christmas Fairs and special events . Under the leadership of the Headteacher, Ms Nicola Green the Children receive a well rounded education from dedicated staff.
After the recent OFSTED visit early September, 2018 the School has been judged GOOD, the report praised the headteacher’s vision and drive, along with the staff who ‘share her passion and determination to keep improving the school’. The report also recognised that the school enjoys strong support from parents and governors, and that ‘pupils make strong progress across a range of subjects, and highlights the school's curriculum and ' rich experiences'. It also praises the school’s inclusivity, noting that ‘respect for cultural heritage is a key feature of the school’ and ‘disadvantaged pupils often achieve well’. It recognises the ‘strong culture of safeguarding’ and the conduct of pupils, describing the school as ‘harmonious and happy’.
Admissions are often oversubscribed in the Reception year. Currently DSM has a few spaces in Years 4,5 & 6 , to find out more about our Admissions policies for the current year and 2019 -2020 please look on the school website
