Our aim at Great Dunmow Primary School is to ensure that all children and staff are able to work and learn in a safe, secure and happy environment. It is our intention that every member of the school community should have the best possible opportunities to enable them to develop the skills and attitudes which they will need for the rest of their lives.
We recognise that it is important to provide children with an environment which is creative, stimulating, caring and supportive as well as meeting the needs of every individual. The children are encouraged to be independent and responsible, which leads them to develop self-confidence and respect for the opinions of others.
We endeavour to create a friendly and quiet working atmosphere which will enable us all to thrive. This is helped by having staff that are dedicated and committed in their role to not only achieving high standards of education and discipline, but also in providing a rich and varied curriculum.
We expect children to be polite, well-mannered and to have respect for themselves as well as all members of the school community. Our core values are ‘Honesty, Effort and Respect’. We believe that in order for children to achieve their best there needs to be positive and close co-operation between home, school and the local community.
The staff and governors look forward to working with you and your child to create a strong educational partnership.
