Dovecote primary school & Nursery
“To rise above the ordinary and give our pupils wings”
Dovecote Primary School & Nursery is a Good-rated primary school in Clifton, Nottingham. The school accepts 60 pupils a year. Admissions for September 2022 are now open and close after Christmas.
The goal of staff at Dovecote is that the school is a place where everyone is valued and that children come first. We believe in our children and aim to inspire and support them to reach their full potential in body, mind and spirit.
WHAT IS our SCHOOL LIKE?
At Dovecote we aim to provide the highest quality care and education for all our children, giving them a strong foundation for their future learning and personal development. We seek to provide a safe and happy environment that allows children to become confident, resilient and independent.
rated good by OFSTED
We were rated Good by Ofsted in our most recent inspection, in 2019. The report found, among other things, that: “Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is at the heart of the school’s work.”
our lovely nursery
We are a teacher-led nursery supported by well qualified, nurturing staff who fully understand the developmental needs of our children. We value curiosity and exploration and have lots of fun learning. The intention of our nursery is to provide the best start to the children’s education. They are at the centre of everything we do.
APPLYING FOR A PLACE
Dovecote is a community school and as such the Local Authority, Nottingham City Council, co-ordinates applications for places in Reception and for transfers from other schools (an in-year transfer). However, if you would like your child to attend our Nursery, you should apply directly to the school.
OUR VISION AND VALUES
Dovecote strives to be a community that values the contribution of everyone, whilst recognising that ‘children come first’. By believing in ourselves and working together we will strive to reach our full potential in body, mind and spirit.
