End of term

Happy Friday all!


The end of term is always full of mixed emotions as we look forward to the summer but say goodbye to our year 6s who we have been so proud of throughout their time at school. This week they presented us with a funny and emotional leaver's concert after all their efforts in their brilliant end of school performance. We wish them all the very best and can honestly say that they have represented Dovedale brilliantly and we know they will all continue to make us proud.


We have been amazed this year how well the children have progressed and adapted back to the full expectations of school life. The assessments across school have been strong and outcomes good, so we look forward to further building on this next year.


The children's behaviours and attitudes as always have been admirable, we aim for our children to be able to self regulate their behaviours, knowing when they are right and taking responsibility when they are wrong. The behaviour in our school is supported by a consistent behaviour system but it is the children's desire to achieve our REACH values and parent support that puts this in action. As a school we are proud of the behaviour across all year groups and how caring and supportive our children are for each other.


As a school we appreciate how our parents communicate with us, support us with their child's education and support us with all the activities that we request help for. We know you sometimes feel bombarded as we try to navigate through all the things we need to communicate with you and all the extra activities that we try to offer but have felt supported by your positive responses. Thank you!


Lastly I would like to thank the Dovedale staff who have worked tirelessly to achieve fantastic outcomes for the children, have worked to enthuse them through the Hub groups and delivered lessons that engage them. Every single member of our team is dedicated to the best outcomes for the children both academically and personally and for that I am grateful.


I wish you all the very best for the summer and as always I can be contacted via the headteacher@dovedale email address over the break. Happy Holidays!
