Welcome to Dovecote Primary & Nursery School - Where children come first! - Judged 'Good' by Ofsted (2019)

We Love Our New Nursery

It’s amazing what removing a wall and adding a lick of paint can do to a Nursery. We are thrilled with the work that has been done to improve our learning environment for the children. They are having lots of fun playing in it and we are already seeing a difference in the way the children are using the workshop areas, learning and looking after things. They also love their outdoor shelter and their new sandpit and mud kitchen.

Welcome to Dovecote Primary & Nursery School

I am delighted to welcome you to our school website. We hope you find it useful, informative and interesting. The pupils, staff, governors and parents are rightly proud of the school and the exciting opportunities that we offer. Our school motto is ‘Children First’ and we place that at the heart of all the decisions we make.

Our aim is that, ‘By believing in ourselves and working together, we will strive to achieve our full potential in body, mind, heart and spirit.’ As you look around the site you will see examples of some of the activities that contribute to this. 

You will be able to find out about Lab_13, our In Harmony project, the Secret Garden, Spanish, ICT, sports activities, after school activities, visits & residentials, and much more.

Enjoy exploring the site and getting a flavour of all the great things that happen at Dovecote.

Dovecote is at the heart of its community and we see your child’s education very much as a partnership. We want to involve families from before the start of nursery to the tearful farewell at the end of year 6 (and even then they come back!). We look forward to seeing you at parents’ meetings, assemblies, concerts, open days, school fairs, and many other events.

On the website, we have tried to include all the practical information that you could want to know about our school. If you have a question that is not answered, please get in touch and we will get back to you.
