Headteacher: Ms J Allen - It is my great pleasure to warmly welcome you to the website for The Downs Primary School and Nursery. 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 have several beautiful new canvas prints around the new building.
We want to make you aware of an incident that has been reported. A primary school (not The Downs) received information from a parent that someone purporting to be a School Nurse contacted them by text to ask questions about their child.
