On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Dunston Hill Community Primary School. As Acting Headteacher, I am extremely proud and privileged to have worked in our school for over 20 years and now as Acting Headteacher.
We are a two-form entry school providing academic and pastoral provision for over 440 children, from Nursery to Year 6. We have a beautiful modern, well-designed and secure building set in spacious, attractive grounds. We have an extensive range of outstanding internal and external facilities and resources enabling us to ensure that the quality of teaching and learning has a significant impact on pupil outcomes.
Our ethos of “Care and Respect for All” is at the heart of everything we do and we consistently strive for a balance between high expectations for children’s academic attainment, progress and potential, as well as their personal and social development. We recognise children as unique individuals with specific talents and needs and aim to provide the nurturing and inclusive environment where children can flourish. We are also blessed with a dedicated staff team who strive to provide the very best for the children and families they work with.
We value greatly our place at the centre of the community of Dunston. We work closely with our families and the community to further enhance the life of our school and its curriculum. We strive to establish and embed links with local businesses, sporting organisations and projects.
We are extremely proud of our children, they are resilient and determined, always demonstrating a “Ready, Respect and Kind” attitude to their work, their play and to the people around them – embodying the very essence of what Dunston Hill Community Primary School is all about.
For new parents and carers joining our school community for the first time, we invite you to work with us in a partnership to make your child’s time here rewarding and fulfilling.
Visits are encouraged and warmly welcomed: the children, staff and I would be delighted to show you around our wonderful school.
