Welcome to Dunnington C.E. Primary School


Caroline Hancy – Executive Head & SYMAT Primary School Improvement Lead

We would like to warmly welcome you and your child to Dunnington Church of England Primary School.

Our aim is to provide the best possible education for all our children. We have a really happy school with a key focus on making learning purposeful, challenging and fun. Whilst we strive for high levels of academic achievement, we are concerned with all aspects of children’s development. It is our intention to provide, within a caring environment, a wide range of balanced learning opportunities which develop and extend the subject skills, key skills, thinking skills and achievements of all our children- a curriculum for the 21st century- a curriculum which will help our pupils to grow up to be knowledgeable, independent, adaptable and responsible people and prepare them for a world in which the only constant is change.

Clare Thompson – Head of School

Our status as a Church of England school aids us in this intent. We have close links with the parish of St. Nicholas and clergy from the Church of England and other denominations regularly visit our school.

We believe that education is a partnership between teachers, parents, children and the wider community. Clear communication between these parties will ensure that we all understand the intentions and beliefs of others. We hope that our policy of openness and co-operation will contribute to making your child’s time at Dunnington C of E School both happy and successful.

If you would like to find out more, please arrange to come and see the school in action. We would be delighted to meet you and feel sure you would enjoy your visit.
