Our Learning

At Dorchester Primary School we inspire our children to develop a love of learning. 

We aim to get the level of challenge just right, so that our children are stretched and able to reach their learning goals.  We use a well-developed range of teaching strategies throughout each lesson to ensure that children are engaged, motivated and able to learn with an increasing degree of independence. 

Our curriculum is the substance of our learning; our curriculum goes beyond taught lessons, covering co-curricular activities and the 'hidden curriculum' - the skills and values that children learn through their interactions with peers and adults every day.
