Headteacher Update 15-10-2021

Dear Parents/Carers, 

Time has flown as we come to the end of a very busy half term. It was wonderful that we could eventually have the Potted Sports and that we have started Educational Visits again. Year 6 had an enlightening experience at Leicester Museum, to complement their work on the Ancient Egyptians and some of Year 4 had a fantastic day at Music Camp.  Everyone had virtual visits from an author and the older children had a visit in person. We were able to have school photos taken and make a wonderful donation to the Food bank from our Harvest Assembly. We launched Numbots and TTRockstars to support the pupils in their Maths. It was lovely to see so many of you in person at Parents’ Evening.  

Remember that Reading Logs can be accessed through MarvellousMe. We will award house points to children who are reading at home. Please read to and with your child at home, this doesn’t have to be a school book.     

We will be focussing on improving attendance and lates next half term, I know that you know how important this is.  

I will let you know as soon as possible any important dates for next half term.    

Have a safe and relaxing half term break,   

Ruth Guy-Clark 

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.
