About Dovecote Primary School

Dovecote Primary School first opened its doors in September 2005. It was created from the amalgamation of 3 existing schools on the same campus - Brooksby, Brinkhill, and Greencroft.

We currently have 485 pupils on role aged 3-11. There are two classes in every year group and a 120 place nursery (60-morning places and 60-afternoon places).  50% of the pupils receive pupil premium funding.

You can find out details of our school curriculum on the curriculum page. At Dovecote, pupils also study Spanish and Philosophy. Years 4,5 & 6 are involved in the In Harmony project, one of only 10 schools in the country, which sees the pupils and staff having 2 -3 hours of professional music tuition a week. We are a brass school focussing on trumpet and trombone. We also have a dedicated Space for Sport and Art.

Clifton Family of Schools

Dovecote is part of the Clifton Family of Schools (CFoS). This group includes all the primaries in Clifton - Dovecote, Milford, Glapton, Whitegate, Highbank and Blessed Robert. It also includes Nethergate and Farnborough.

The Headteachers meet every half term and agree on the priorities for the family of schools and also agree on common policies like the Attendance Policy, so they are the same in every school.

The deputy heads also meet and organise a range of events like the annual singing festival.  Other groups of teachers from the schools meet to agree on levels of work and share ideas and resources.

There is also a wide range of sports activities including boys and girls football (we are the reigning boys league champions), dance and gymnastics festivals, multi-sport and indoor Olympic competitions.
