‘High Standards on a Small Scale’

Dorset Road is a very successful, small, one form entry infant school that has long been established in the heart of the local community and prides itself on being able to enable all children to achieve well academically, personally and socially.

At Dorset Road, we believe that children learn best when they feel safe and enjoy what they do. Our lovely children are positive and enthusiastic learners who love a challenge and our staff are committed, creative and supportive.

We are committed to ensuring a high staff/pupil ratio and to meeting the needs of all pupils. We have 3 classes each with a teacher, and experienced support staff.

The children’s learning takes place in a variety of ways, in ability groups, mixed ability groups, whole class and sometimes individually and through personalised learning. We place a strong emphasis on children learning collaboratively, with a focus on development of speaking, listening and thinking skills throughout. We actively encourage our pupils to discuss learning and share their thoughts and opinions.

We are very proud of our school and welcome prospective parents and children, either at one of our open days, or by appointment. Come and see our happy school for yourselves.
