Thank you for taking the time to visit the Dormanstown Primary website, I hope it gives you a good insight into our academy.
Our aim is to provide a happy, safe and stimulating learning environment, in which we strive to provide inspiring and memorable learning experiences for children throughout their learning journey. We have 240 pupils within our Reception to Year 6 classes and a nursery provision which can take 39 children for the morning session and 26 children within the afternoon session.
We are very proud of our academy, and are committed to pursuing continual improvement so that we can provide the best educational experience possible for Dormanstown children. We work closely with our partner academies in Tees Valley Education, including Brambles Primary Academy, Discovery Special Academy, Pennyman Primary Academy and Wilton Primary Academy.
Within Dormanstown Primary, we have special educational needs units alongside our mainstream classes. We have 35 commissioned places within specialist high needs bases. We take children from across the Redcar and Cleveland area and these base places are allocated through a Local Authority SEN panel.
Our academy building provides a superb environment in which to engage children in learning. The design of the building means every area of the school is a learning area – even the corridors and our outside environment are used to deliver our curriculum.
Our whole school community worked together to create the vision for our academy, reflecting our beliefs and values:
Dormanstown Primary Academy exists to enable all children to realise their full potential. In our eyes, all children are achievers. We celebrate their individuality and always ensure our academy community is given a voice that is heard. By creating a dynamic, safe and stimulating environment, we provide exciting learning opportunities that develop curiosity, confidence and the key skills that ensure children are able to succeed in all aspects of their life. Respect and understanding are the cornerstones of all that we do. Our children know that what makes us different, also makes us special; we value our uniqueness. Happiness for all is the key to our success.
Above all here at Dormanstown, we want our children to be happy, secure and have a sense of belonging as they move through the first years of their educational journey, developing their unique potential to not only reach their best academically, but also develop a thirst for knowledge and a love of learning.
