Welcome to the Dogsthorpe Academy.
I feel privileged to be the Principal of Dogsthorpe Academy. There are always so many things happening at Dogsthorpe Academy and the people -staff, parents and children- are happy and really positive. It is great to be part of and work with such a rich and diverse community.
Our pupils are happy and they get on well with each other. We have a well -developed programme of teaching personal, health, emotional and social skills. We teach children how to be healthy and how to be safe.
Our staff are a hard working team who provide engaging learning opportunities and experiences to esnure children achieve their potential in all areas. We encourage our pupils to be independent so that they have confidence and positive attitudes when they leave us to go on to Secondary Education. We also work with children on their aspirations and consider different careers they may wish to pursue in adut life.
We work closely with parents and carers. We value the support that parents and carers provide; we see them as partners in a child’s education. Parents and carers are encouraged to contact the Academy if there are any questions or concerns.
We believe in listening to our pupils and there are many ways that pupils can be involved and contribute to Academy life. We have an Academy Council, Head boy and girl, a range of ambassadors and House captains. There are also a range of extra-curricular activities where children can take part in clubs at lunchtime or after school.
Please contact the Academy if you have any questions or would like to visit.
