End of term

Happy Friday all!

It's hard to believe we are at the end of the year and what a busy year it has been.

Through this year we have celebrated assemblies and performances, held Christmas fairs and Coronation events. We had a successful OFSTED and good SATS results. 

We won the Float award in the carnival and have had parents in school every week reading to groups of children, what a success this has been.

The children have had reading partners and Expert groups, free after school clubs and lunchtime activities. They have worked hard and in year results are all good. Behaviour analysis shows that the children's behaviour has improved over time, even by our own high standards. Something which is often commented upon when they go out on trips and visits and is very evident in the calm and purposeful atmosphere around school.

I am very grateful that our children show respect and resilience and really look out for each other and I know that this is done in partnership with parents as we give them the tools to make the best choices ready for their next stages.

So thank you to parents and members of the community who have supported us in all our efforts this year. 

I would also like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at Dovedale. They are dedicated, hardworking and relentless in their ambitions for your children. 

As a Head teacher I could not wish for a better staff to deliver our vision.

But lastly a thank you to our funny, remarkable class of '23 who move onto their secondary schools having made us proud, knowing that they are ready to take on their next challenge. We wish everyone of our Year 6s a fantastic year 7 and look forward to hearing of all their achievements.

I hope you all have a lovely summer. If you need to contact school please use the email which will be checked regularly. I will be asking teachers to turn their Dojos off to allow them to recharge over the break.

Take care
