Hi, and welcome to Dringhouses Primary School!

It’s my pleasure to introduce this amazing school, and all of the people here – an inspiring, friendly and dedicated set of learners, children and adults alike.

We’re a warm and welcoming community, where our staff, families, and children feel valued, looked after, and where learning is inclusive. We want our children to become great people – to succeed academically, socially, and to find things they love to do.

We’re outward-looking and our character values are very important across the whole of our school and wider community: curiosity, creativity, confidence, collaboration, and community-mindedness.  We always look to ensure equity of opportunity for all of our children, and see kindness as a fundamental value 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!
