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.

“Throughout school, teachers encourage pupils to be ambitious and aim high.
They respond well to
clearly stated high expectations for all groups and abilities of pupils.
Pupils are helped to develop good learning skills, such as persistence and attentiveness, through good example and direct teaching..”

6CS create a National Trust exhibition!

6CS have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in an exciting World War 1 project . They have been working hard, with Fifth Word Theatre Company, to produce an exhibition of archives and artefacts for the National Trust. The exhibition will be displayed at Sudbury Hall and then at Kedleston Hall. It has been an incredibly busy week with a trip to Sudbury Hall, where the children were trained to understand how to put together an exhibition and the importance of display techniques to interest their audience. As the week progressed, the class sorted through and gained a deeper understanding of events from World War 1 that were significant to Derby and the surrounding areas. We also visited The Derbyshire Record Office in Matlock and were able to look at and research actual archives from World War 1. As part of the project, a documentary film is being made so we had our very own camera man for the week!
