We are a school that caters for the individual needs of your child, encourages creativity and has high expectations.

We are a school that uses new technology to enhance teaching and learning across a topic based stimulating curriculum.

We are a school that works in partnership with families so that the children are the best they can be.

At Dove First  school we aim to prepare our students to become good citizens of the future. Through our curriculum we teach pupils British values and how to celebrate diversity. We aim to raise their awareness of radicalisation and extremist views, whatever the source, so that they can make informed choices. We have adopted the principles and advice found in  ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016’ and the 2011 ‘Prevent Strategy’. These are incorporated into our school policy on tackling extremism.
