Head Teacher's Welcome

Welcome to Dalestorth Primary and Nursery School.


Welcome to our website. I hope it gives you a flavour of our school and what an amazing place it is for our children to learn and develop over time. We are really excited to welcome new children into our Nursery in January and it has been amazing seeing them come in for their first few days and start to get used to learning with us. 


Hopefully you will have had all the information you need to help you support your child with their return to school. We are really pleased with the outcome of our recent OFSTED inspection in November 2022. We feel it reflects what it is like to be a learner at Dalestorth and also the culture we as leaders have tried to create and build upon. A copy of the report is in the OFSTED section of this website.


You will have received more regular information about your child's learning in school last term. Our Learning Zone newsletters have come out each half term alongside our knowledge organisers to let you know what your child will be learning and how you can help them remember more over time. Please let us know what you think of this through the office email. 


Dalestorth is a fantastic place to work and learn. We want all of our children to achieve their potential academically. More importantly for us, we aim to put our children's social and emotional needs at the centre of what we do. We have built a good pastoral system in school which we are keen to use to support any child we have concerns about. Please let us know if you feel your child needs any extra support. Please let us know if you feel your child needs any extra support.


We really hope you found your parent meeting appointment useful in November and enjoyed seeing your child's work at our end of term museum event. Our children loved sharing their learning and work from their different history topics this term. This was not only with parents and carers but also with other children across the school. We will do this again next term with the children's geography work bit it will probably look a little different in how we present it. 


Our website aims to give an insight into life at our school and we hope you will find it useful. The school is a busy, happy place where the successes of all of our children are celebrated. We have high expectations of our pupils and high hopes for their futures. They are well behaved and like to engage in the many opportunities on offer. With such a positive attitude and great behaviour, their achievements are numerous and potential for lifelong learning, excellent.


Our website is no substitute for seeing the school in action and we encourage you to come and visit and see our school for yourself; you would be most welcome.  If you have any queries relating to the school, or require a paper copy of any information published on this website, please do not hesitate to contact me, my fellow school leaders Mrs Claxton and Mrs Curran or our office team.
