Head Teacher's Welcome

Welcome to Dorridge Primary School. We are a large, three-form entry, community Primary School maintained by Solihull MBC. In addition, we have a 40 place Nursery offering both morning and afternoon sessions. We pride ourselves on providing a nurturing environment, where children can develop into confident young people with a real thirst for learning.



Our website has been designed to give you a flavour of life at Dorridge, we've included a gallery of images taken around the school. We hope it helps you to gain an understanding of how our school is organised and appreciate the exciting learning opportunities on offer to the children in our care. 

With the continuing restrictions due to COVID-19 we will be updating the website to try and give as much flavour as we can of events in school.

As a starting point, as we cannot have our normal Parents Information Evenings, we have produced a series of presentations, one for Key Stage 1 and then individual ones for each year group. These are available on the main Year Group Pages at the links below.

As the Head Teacher, I am extremely proud to lead a talented team that are hard-working and committed to achieving high standards; whilst providing a caring and nurturing environment.

I feel it is vital to provide a learning environment in which Parents, Staff, Governors, and the PTA work together in partnership for the benefit of our pupils. Together we ensure that our pupils achieve their full potential, developing skills to become independent, life-long learners, who leave us as responsible citizens that are respectful and tolerant.

Above all, we strive to encourage initiative within a happy, healthy and safe environment where all achievement is valued and celebrated. Our rewards systems enable all pupils to achieve their own personal best; whilst recognising good behaviour and manners. Further to this, we deliver a broad, balanced, and enriching curriculum that promotes challenge and creativity, enabling all pupils to make a positive contribution towards their own and others’ learning experience.
