Welcome to Dove Bank

Headteacher’s Welcome

A very warm welcome to the Dove Bank Primary School website! We are a medium sized primary school with an attached nursery and a provision for two year olds. The school has one class for each year group accommodated in separate classrooms. Our annual intake of pupils into the Reception class is thirty per year. The Nursery class, has 26 part-time places and our Twos class has 16 part-time places.

At Dove Bank Primary we pride ourselves on offering our pupils a first class, all round education. The dedicated and hardworking staff at Dove Bank provide a nurturing environment in which all children are able to succeed. We have high expectations of our children and set challenging targets for them. We encourage every child to reach their full potential and recognise that every child is special and has a contribution to make.

In recent years the school has developed a highly effective creative curriculum which is based on enquiry led learning and high pupil interest. Drama plays an important role throughout the school and this is enhanced by our close partnerships with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the New Vic Theatre.

We place significant value in the role of parents in children’s learning and encourage active parental involvement to ensure that all children receive a high quality education and most importantly enjoy their time at Dove Bank Primary School.

I hope you enjoy your tour around the website and find it both informative and interesting. If you would like to visit us, please ring the school for an appointment and we would love to see you. We look forward to meeting you.

Mrs E Ford
