A warm welcome from our Headteacher

Hello, and welcome to
Dringhouses Primary School.

It’s my pleasure to work with such an inspiring, friendly and dedicated set of people here – a true team.

We’re a warm, welcoming, and inclusive community, where our staff and children feel valued, looked after, and where learning is viewed as the ‘enhancement of knowledge, capabilities, values, attitudes, [and] understanding (including but going beyond the acquisition of factual knowledge).’ Coffield (2019)

We’re outward looking and we celebrate diversity – looking for representation of ourselves, and of others across our community. We always look to ensure equity of opportunity for all of our children, and see kindness as a fundamental value and attribute of our school.

We’re learners, and leaders – confident, collaborative, and curious – seeking to foster creativity and build community. The school has strong foundations and a culture built on respect, hard-work, and kindness.

Together, we hope to build on the school’s strengths and those before us: continuing to make progress both academically and socially, and by continuing to growing the Dringhouses community.

Feel free to get in touch to find out more – we’re always keen for a chat!
