Welcome to the Dovecote Primary School website.

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.

Either on the website, or in the pupil planners, 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.

Headteacher's Update - September 2017

Welcome back to a new school year. I hope you all had a good summer.

As ever, we have lots of exciting things planned for this year. We have welcomed many new staff this year and they have all settled in well.

We hope you are enjoying Marvellous Me and like getting the messages and pictures. If you haven’t signed up yet – you don’t know what you are missing! If you have had any problems signing up, pop into school and we will help you get started. Thanks for all the High 5s you have given staff in response to their messages.

We have planned the parent information meetings, and the first one is on Monday 18th September. It will be in the school hall at 3.30 for about 30 minutes. During this first meeting (there will be one every half term), we will give a quick recap of Read Write Inc (our phonics scheme), how we teach reading and writing, and our new maths scheme from Hamilton Trust.

If you are lucky, we will practice the school times tables songs.

Some other key dates this half term are;

Wednesday 13th September – House Colour Day

Wednesday 20th September – Harvest Assembly (donations to Clifton Food Bank)

Thursday 21st September – School photographer in

Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th October – parents’ evenings
