Headteacher’s welcome letter

Welcome to Dolphinholme C.E. Primary School where we are blessed with a wonderful setting in which to learn. Is there a more beautiful school in Lancashire?

Dolphinholme is a warm and welcoming school where we put children and their families at the heart of everything we do. We are a Church of England School and celebrate our distinct Christian ethos. We encourage children to be respectful, forgiving and compassionate and we provide a nurturing, inclusive and safe community built on Christian Values that inspire positive and trusting relationships between school, families and the wider community.

We are committed to providing the best education within a caring, family atmosphere. In all we do, we aim to instil in all our pupils an awareness of their own strengths, abilities, talents and responsibilities so that they can become good citizens in the world in which they live.

We have close links with churches in our village, especially St Mark’s, and worship is an important part of daily school life. Education of children is based on a partnership between the child, home and school. In partnership with parents we aim to build up children’s self-confidence and enjoyment of their time in school. We welcome your involvement in our school community.

We have an active PTFA who are always working hard to support the school in many ways.

Our committed and knowledgeable governing body support us and play an active role in the life of our school.

We are very proud of our school and its achievements. Ofsted judged us to be ‘Outstanding’ in every area during their latest inspection. We were also judged to be ‘Outstanding’ in every area in our latest SIAMs inspection.

We would love for you to come and visit us; please telephone the school office to make an appointment. We look forward to your child joining our school and we look forward to meeting you.

If you require a paper copy of any of the documents or information on this website, please contact the school office.
