At Dove First School we seek to provide the best education and care, based on Christian and British Values. We aspire to be a safe, caring, nurturing community that provides firm foundations rooted in the Christian faith. Our motto is “Roots to grow, wings to fly” inspired by the scripture “The person who trusts in the Lord will be blessed, like a strong tree planted by water. That tree always produces fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8.
Our pupils learn the importance of kindness, perseverance, respect, honesty, self-control and forgiveness. We work hard to promote the Christian ethos and values of our school. We aim to create a happy, friendly, inclusive and caring learning environment and our staff work hard to foster and extend a child’s natural curiosity, enthusiasm and energy in order that they realise their full potential and experience joy in learning.
Our pupils are provided with appropriate support so that they are enabled to pursue the highest standards of progress and attainment in all areas of school’s life. We believe very strongly in the importance of developing a strong partnership between children, parents and carers, the members of our Local Academy Council, staff, the church and our wider community.
