About Us

It is a pleasure and a privilege to welcome you as you visit Dovers Green school website.  I hope that you find the information both useful and informative.  If you have any questions or would like to find out more about us please get in touch.

At Dovers Green our motto is Reach Up, Reach Out. To achieve this we aim for each child to achieve more than they ever thought was possible and supporting children in working together collaboratively to develop strong, supportive and respectful relationships with each other and the adults they work with. We believe that every child will leave Dovers Green with more choices available to them than when they started.  We have high expectations of all children and provide them with the challenge, opportunities and support for them to flourish.  We provide children with relevant, purposeful learning opportunities with new, exciting experiences. We do this through providing an engaging creative curriculum that links learning and our Forest School which offers all learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop self-esteem through hands-on learning in a natural environment.

We are a fully inclusive school and are fortunate enough to have a sixteen place Communication and Interaction needs centre as part of our school. All of these children are very much part of the Dovers Green community and participate in whole school activities when it is appropriate for them to do so. More information about our centre can be found here.

We have a strong, dedicated team, who are passionate about working with children so that they can achieve their very best.  The driven senior leadership team lead the school in an ambitious direction. A member of this team is on the playground every morning so that you can talk to us informally if you need to. We have year leaders across the school who ensure consistency and high expectations across their team.  Every teacher, teaching assistant and member of the admin and premises team, act as role models in order for children to achieve the highest standards.  We also work closely with our successful Children’s Centre, who provide support for families and children from early pregnancy to primary school through to families of teenagers from across the local community.

Alongside our dedicated staff, are our community of parents and carers who come from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures.  We strive to work closely with parents as we know it is when school and home work together, their children achieve their very best.  We hold many events and sessions throughout the year where parents are invited into school.  Keep a look out on the calendar and newsletter for these events.

We are fortunate at Dovers Green to be based on a large area of land with truly excellent facilities.  We have a Forest School; trim trail; an outside area for every year group to support the continuous provision of their learning; an astroturf area for all year round sports to take place; a hall equipped with an excellent sound system and gymnastic equipment and much more.
