Welcome to Dovers Green
Our vision for the school is to nurture all children to enable them to reach up and achieve their full potential whilst reaching out to help others.
|I am both proud and privileged to be the headteacher of a school where all staff work together to create a happy, caring environment so that every child feels safe, has positive self-esteem and is helped and encouraged to be a confident, independent learner.|
Dovers Green is a popular and successful school that has high expectations, encouraging children to always try hard to do their best in an atmosphere where they have a clear understanding of how they should behave and what is expected of them academically and socially. An inclusive ethos underpins our work and each child is valued for his or her individuality, while everyone understands that we are all special but we are all different. The school motto ‘Reaching Up, Reaching Out’ reflects this ethos. We want the children to be happy and excited about coming to school to learn and to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding across a wide curriculum. We aim to challenge and inspire every child. We are a Teaching School and also part of SESTA (South East Surrey Teaching Alliance). This means that we work with five other local outstanding schools and colleges to provide support and professional development for the local area.
Dovers Green is a three form entry community infant school set in beautiful grounds that over recent years have been developed to provide an interesting and exciting learning environment, where everyone works hard to ensure that the children are safe, secure and part of a friendly and caring community. When new children and their parents join our school we strive to do everything possible to ensure that the ‘settling in’ process is an easy and comfortable time for everyone, as we strongly believe in the vital role that parents have in their child’s education. Only when a child feels secure and confident in their environment can effective learning take place. We encourage parents to let us know if there is anything, however small, that may affect the happiness and progress of their child. Mutual understanding and trust should be the basis of our shared responsibility for the care and education of your child.
I am delighted that you are considering Dovers Green as your child’s first school and hope that this prospectus gives you an insight into the learning experiences we provide for our children. Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will have to make as a parent and only by visiting us will you be able to feel for yourself the friendliness, happiness and sense of purpose that is Dovers Green. I look forward to meeting you and showing you around our school.
