Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to Great Dalby Primary School. We hope our website will provide you with a flavour of life at our wonderful school. We recognise the importance of making the right choice for your child’s education and whilst our website can give you that important insight, an actual visit to our school will give you a clear view of what we are about and what we are able to offer so that you can make an informed choice. Visits are always welcome as we always enjoy meeting new, as well as existing parents and carers.

We are a small, friendly school and our seven year groups (Foundation to Year 6) are split between five classes. We have high aspirations and expectations for all our pupils and every child’s progress is monitored carefully throughout their time with us.  This enables us not only to provide relevant intervention, challenge and support where necessary, but also helps, with consultation with parents and carers, to ensure that every child is placed in the most appropriate class to meet their educational needs.

At Great Dalby our philosophy,ethos and values are centred around the child and to us every child does really matter.  Our team of experienced teachers and teaching assistants provide a caring environment in which a range of challenging, inspiring and exciting learning opportunities are provided. We recognise every child as an individual and we strive to meet the learning needs of every child to enable each and every one to reach his or her full potential.  We work hard to create a positive atmosphere within our school and we foster an attitude in which success and achievement are celebrated.  We want to encourage a ‘can do’ approach and attitude; we want our children to have the confidence to have a go and try.  Children’s self-esteem matters and we want our children to leave at the end of Year 6 as confident students with enquiring minds and a love of learning.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you are able to find all the information you are looking for. We understand that you may still have questions to ask or points to clarify. In which case please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have or to make an appointment to visit.

In September 2016 we became part of a newly formed Multi Academy Trust called the Bradgate Education Partnership. This is an exciting and forward thinking trust with children at the heart of each and every decision made. Great Dalby is also part of the STEP Teaching School Alliance.

Thank you for visiting our website.
