As headteacher, I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to Dove Bank Primary School.
From the moment I stepped foot into the school, I was greeted by welcoming, hardworking and friendly children, as well as a staff team who work exceptionally hard and care a great deal for the children’s needs. Dove Bank is very fortunate to be supported by dedicated parents and a strong team of governors to help challenge and support the school to become even better.
At Dove Bank, we strive for high standards and feel that these are best achieved when the school and parents are working together in partnership with the child. As a school, we recognise that children need to have the academic skills but we also know that children need to develop resilience, confidence and a positive attitude towards their learning.
Our school benefits from fabulous outside space including a large field, spacious hardstanding playground and fantastic woodland nature areas. Another feature of the school which gives us great pride is the happy, friendly, caring family ethos which enables our children to settle quickly. We believe that this is vital if children are to achieve their full potential and go on to be successful and independent learners.
We hope that you will enjoy looking at our website but if you would like to know more, then please come along and visit our school. We look forward to meeting you.
Mr. James Cheesman
