About our school 

Dovecotes opened in 1978 as a separate infant school and junior school. The two schools amalgamated in 1995 to form Dovecotes Primary School. 


The Early Years Unit includes Terrific for Twos (provision known as Little Doves), Nursery and Reception classes. All year groups share a playground which is well-equipped and spacious.  


Key Stage 1 has 3 classrooms. There is also a hall, an outdoor courtyard area and a breakout area which is used for group activities and intervention sessions. 


The Key Stage 2 area is linked by an adjoining corridor which houses the Main Reception Office. There are four classroom areas, a large hall, dining room, music room, art room, courtyard, library and sensory room. There are two breakout areas used for group activities and intervention sessions. Key Stage 2 has a large, enclosed playground and playing field which serves the whole school.
