At Dove CE Academy we aspire to be a safe, caring, nurturing community. Providing firm foundations rooted in the Christian faith. Inspiring all to grow and flourish.

At Dove Academy, we provide a safe and nurturing environment based on our Christian values. We encourage children to care for themselves, each other and our community. We help the children to develop an idea of what it means to be a good citizen drawing on British values. Our school council discuss ways in which we can give back to our local community and the worldwide community.

We are a school that caters to the individual needs of your child, encourages creativity and has high expectations. We are proud to say that we support everyone in our school community to grow and flourish in our care and are committed to providing aspirational opportunities for our children to explore the many varied options that are available to them following their time at The Dove. We encourage our children to think deeply and take risks in order that they become lifelong learners
