At Dorchester, we provide a rich and broad learning experience, striving to ensure all children make steady and consistent progress - whatever their starting points may be.

Our Attainment in 2022

The government are not publishing SATS outcomes for 2022 as they recognise that results may have dipped in schools as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic.   We are extremely proud of the on line learning programme we had in place during the pandemic and of the efforts made by our staff, and indeed our children, to make sure that there was no lost learning.


We are an inclusive school in which we want every child to achieve their potential, regardless of their starting point.  We welcome everyone whose needs we can meet as we believe this enhances the richness and diversity of our community.  Our children thoroughly deserve the excellent outcomes, all above national averages, achieved in their SATs tests, which were as follows:


Cohort size - 90

% of cohort with Special Educational Needs 24%

% of cohort with English as an Additional Language 36%


  Dorchester Primary School National
Reading 88% 75%
Spelling and Grammar 82% 72%
Maths 83% 71%
