Downderry has a disability equality duty that applies to all disabled pupils, staff and those using services provided by the school. We also help children and their parents with their English. In fact, our doors are always open to parents as well as children and we work with many other local organisations to help and improve our community.
Downderry is a place where your children can feel safe, confident and valued and you can feel a real sense of belonging. It's like a family.
