Message from the Head Teacher
Welcome to our school website!
Dunkirk Primary is a multi-national school which is located over two sites, the Highfields Campus in Dunkirk and the Abbey Campus in Lenton. We have children from many different nationalities and we know this offers something very special. Our children have the opportunity to understand, appreciate and be part of the diverse society in which we live.
Parents, carers, staff and Governors work together to provide an excellent education. We have high standards of behaviour and provide an educational environment that will challenge children to achieve their best.
The school is a medium sized primary school with a capacity of 240 places for children aged five to eleven years, with an additional 60 place foundation class for three and four year olds. Recent refurbishments have greatly improved our internal and external provisions and Dunkirk is a fully adapted school for disability access. The Children's Centre on the school site offers many aditional and targeted services for our children and their families.
Each class has a dedicated page on the website. I hope you will enjoy finding out more about us at Dunkirk.
