Welcome to Little Dewchurch CE Primary School. The Staff, Parents, and Governors welcome you to our learning community.
Please come into school to see us at any time. We operate an open-door policy – the Executive Headteacher is always happy to see you if she is available. The school administrator will make an appointment for you if she is off-site or in a meeting. Teachers are available before and after school – although Wednesday is best avoided as this is when we have our weekly staff meeting.
All of our staff are extremely approachable – the school administrator Maureen Store will gladly offer you any assistance you may require when attempting to find out what we do, or help with any concerns.
The school is a well-established school – there has been a school on this site since 1868. We have classic old stone buildings for years 2 and 3. Class 4 (years 4, 5, 6) occupy a new build which links the original school to the old schoolmaster’s house, where Class 1 (Reception) is on the, recently extended, ground floor. We have acquired a school field allowing the children to benefit from the beautiful countryside that our school is set in. Within this field, is situated our newest classroom - Class 2 (year 1) The school offers wireless computing provision and with 1 laptop for practically every child, we continue to develop children’s high level computer skills and incorporate technology into the wider curriculum whenever possible.
The children, staff, parents and Governing Body work together to provide our children with the best education possible, to enhance their chance of success in the future, and to give them greater choices in life.
We offer free extra-curricular activities that run Monday – Friday from 3.15pm – to 4.15pm. These are run by class teachers or by the Student Support team.
We have close links with the village church, St. David’s, and Rev Houghton works closely with FOLDS (Friends of Little Dewchurch School) and The School Council. They help organise social and fund raising events for our children, their families and the wider community.
All those involved in the school have a commitment to high expectations and supporting every child to achieve their real potential – not just academically, but socially and emotionally.
We hope that you feel we have what you believe your child needs.
Our prospectus is intended to provide you with all the information needed to help your child or children settle into school. If there are things that we have not mentioned that you would like information on, please contact the school.
