Welcome to Dale

We believe that Dale Community Primary School is a very special place where all children, parents and staff work together as part of a happy, positive and caring learning community.  As parents we want you to enjoy being part of Dale and hope that you will feel able to enter into a partnership with us so that your child may achieve their full potential.

“The strong sense of community as pupils from diverse backgrounds not only get on well, but care for each other and are quick to welcome newcomers and look after the most vulnerable... Each pupil is known and cared for as an individual and as a result of the outstanding focus on safety, all pupils feel extremely safe and look out for the safety of others.”  OFSTED 2010.
