A welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to Dersingham Primary School.  Our website aims to give you a snapshot of our school, as well as providing important information for the whole school community.  We hope that you enjoy your visit and find the website informative and helpful.

As a school, we are committed to providing the very very best learning opportunities for your child in a safe, secure and friendly community environment.  As part of my commitment to raising standards, we are excited to deliver a bespoke curriculum linked to the full statutory national curriculum.  All pupils at Dersingham will have the opportunity to learn to speak a language, learn to play an instrument, learn to swim and to visit many places of interest.  Preparing pupils for life in Modern Britain and the demands of the 21st Century is a key focus.  This means that we have a strong emphasis on using technology as a learning tool and that all of our children have access to a range of technology, including the use of netbooks and tablets.

There is no limit on how well all pupils can achieve.   I have the highest expectations for all of our children, and as a school, we expect them to aim high and to achieve their full potential.  I feel it is important that pupils at Dersingham achieve academically as well as developing their personal and social skills, both in and out of school.  I, together with my staff, have a strong belief in good behaviour and good manners with an emphasis on caring for each other and taking on responsibility.  We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find it informative and helpful.  If you would like to arrange a visit to our school, please contact the main office.
