Working Together At Dove Bank

We have an exceptionally hardworking and dedicated team of staff who have a common goal in wanting to make every child’s time in school enjoyable and memorable. All of our teachers and teaching assistants are passionate about children and work together to ensure every child’s needs are met.

They have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of each child, enabling each child to feel secure, safe and happy in school.

We are friendly and approachable and encourage all our parents to take an active part in their child’s learning and within the school community.
