Welcome To Discovery Primary School


It is with great sadness I must inform you that Ann Jefferson, our Chair of Governors, passed away on Saturday morning. Ann will be truly missed by all of us here at Discovery, she was an amazing lady and I’ll be forever grateful to her. Ann’s dedication and commitment to the community was valued by everyone. May she rest in peace and feel no more pain. Our thoughts and prayers are with her loving family, may they find strength to celebrate her life and continue her legacy ‘it’s all about the children!’

Kind regards


Sarah Harvey
