Hello, and welcome to Dringhouses Primary School.
I'm Ben, the headteacher, and it's my pleasure to work with such an inspiring, friendly and dedicated set of people here - a true team.
We're a warm, welcoming, and inclusive community, where our staff and children feel valued, looked after, and where learning is viewed as the 'enhancement of knowledge, capabilities, values, attitudes, [and] understanding (including but going beyond the acquisition of factual knowledge).' Coffield (2019)
We're outward looking, and we celebrate diversity - looking for representation of ourselves, and of others across our community. We always look to ensure equity of opportunity for all of our children, and see kindness as a fundamental value and attribute of our school.
We're learners, and leaders - confident, collaborative, and curious - seeking to foster creativity and build community. The school has strong foundations and a culture built on respect,hard-work, and kindness.
Together, we hope to build on the school's strengths and those before us: continuing to make progress both academically and socially, and by continuing to growing the Dringhouses community.
Feel free to get in touch to find out more - we're always keen for a chat!
