The Curriculum

Our small class sizes enable us to get to know your child extremely well so that we can not only set specific individualised academic targets, but also discover how they learn best. We prioritise English and maths, however, we do offer a holistic programme including science, geography, history, Spanish, computer coding, gardening and a vast array of extracurricular activities, clubs and outings.

Games & The Arts

We train pupils in the arts (drama, music, painting, drawing, clay and design and technology) with specialist teaching and a plethora of performing and exhibiting opportunities. We also coach children in a wide range of sports (football, tag rugby, hockey, netball, cricket, dance, athletics and cross-country) through dynamic teaching and superb fixtures.

Pastoral Care

We are committed to giving both time and care to grow your child’s character on their journey from nursery to Year six. Our Christian ethos leads us to believe that personal growth ultimately matters more than lists of achievements. So we are thrilled both by children’s awards and accolades and equally excited about who they are. Dolphin children are known to be caring, compassionate, supportive, funny, ambitious, ‘give-it-a-go’ people who value integrity and truth, going the extra mile to inspire others to achieve.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

If we want children to be the best they can be, academically, artistically, in sport or as people, we must start by valuing them for who they are and to appreciate that they have different intelligences which need opportunities to be developed.
