Welcome to our website which we hope will give you an insight into our school and everything we have to offer.

The Downs is an inclusive primary school in the heart of Harlow. We have a dedicated staff team who ensure that the needs of each individual child are met, enabling  every child to make the best possible progress.

We hope that our website will help you to discover more about our school community, and our achievements at The Downs. 

We ensure that our school is a place where every child can experience a whole range of successes and where children are encouraged to become confident individuals who are independent and creative in their thinking.  We have a climate of care and consideration in which children respect one another and enjoy learning about each other's achievements.  At The Downs, we promote an ethos underpinned by strong moral values that will provide children with an exemplary model for living. 

Every member of staff at The Downs is committed to creating this ideal learning environment and, as a result, we are rewarded with happy, enthusiastic children who really enjoy coming to school!  If you would like to come and see this for yourselves, please feel free to make an appointment to visit us – you will be made most welcome.
