Congratulations and Good Luck, Year 6 - Class of 2020!
School Council

Have you ever wondered what life is like at Dovecotes?

Our school council have created a podcast to let you know about some of the exciting events and days that have taken place during Autumn 2019 (during 'normal' school life!).

We hope you enjoy listening and we look forward to welcoming you back in September. 

Well done to all of the children of 'Lockdown 2020' - we are so proud of all of you to have got through this difficult time. For those who have been in school during this time, it has been a pleasure to travel this journey together and for those of you working at home, well done for accomplishing new experiences! 

We look forward to welcoming you all back in September.
