Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Dorchester Primary School

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make.  There are so many things to think about – so where do you start to make sure your child gets the best possible foundation on which to build a successful and fulfilled future?

At Dorchester Primary School we start with a recognition that children only get one childhood; it should be filled with happy memories.  It should be a time when children develop healthy habits to protect their long term physical and mental wellbeing, and a time to build friendships that last a lifetime.  We make sure that our children are recognised as individuals, know that they are cared for and understand the valuable contribution they make to our school and wider community. Our aim is that they leave us as happy, healthy, confident and well-rounded young people, ready to face the joys and challenges of their future lives. 

We know also that happy, healthy children make successful learners.  We present our children with just the right amount of challenge to ensure they are stretched but not stressed.  We present the curriculum using a wide range of teaching styles, making sure we spark children’s imaginations and capture their enthusiasm in all subjects.  Our staff are an incredible team, collectively committed to our school motto of ‘Achieving Excellence Together in a Caring Community’.

If you would like to find out more, please contact our school office and we will arrange for you to attend one of our Open Events or an in person or virtual visit – we look forward to welcoming you and telling you more about our wonderful school.
