Headteacher’s Welcome

As Headteacher, I am delighted to welcome you to Dove Bank Primary School.

Choosing the right school for your child is vitally important.  Parents want their children to receive a good education but they also want them to be happy and to feel safe and secure in school.  At Dove Bank we believe we can offer all these things.

As a school, we recognise the potential of every individual to achieve excellence.

We are committed to providing the best possible education for all of our children in an inclusive, stimulating and caring environment which enables pupils to develop high self-esteem and experience success in learning and in their personal growth.

We pride ourselves on creating an exciting learning environment which is rich in opportunity through the implementation of a wide ranging and challenging curriculum that meets the needs of the whole child and encourages independent thinking and learning skills. We value all pupils equally and believe that their time in school should be rewarding and fulfilling.

We are particularly proud of the warm and welcoming family atmosphere which is always evident in our school.

The high standards of learning and teaching at Dove Bank are a credit to the hard work of both pupils and staff.

I sincerely hope that this website will provide a helpful introduction to Dove Bank Primary School and that you will find the information useful. If you have any questions or would like to discuss any matters further, please do not hesitate to contact me.
