School Vision and Aims

School Vision


Dormansland Primary School provides a place to learn that nurtures, challenges and inspires all our children.


We encourage them to be the best they can be and to become happy, self-confident and responsible citizens, ready to meet the demands of life in 21st Century Britain and the wider global community.


We strive to achieve the highest standards of behaviour, social interaction and academic achievement, so that every child leaves our school with confidence, self-belief and the ability to take advantage of many, varied opportunities in the future.


We work hard to cultivate a warm, friendly, community atmosphere, where the promotion of spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is at the heart of all that we do.
