Head Teacher's Welcome


Welcome to Dinnington First School! 

I am so proud to be Head Teacher of such a happy and friendly school. Our pupils, parents, staff, governors and local community all work hard together and we are committed to providing the very best education for all our children.

Our beautiful new building and 21st century facilities allow the children to learn in a safe, spacious and vibrant environment with access to wide open playing spaces and our forest school. We have fantastic sporting facilities and the children are encouraged to develop an active and healthy life style. Children are given the opportunity to try a wide range of sports so that they can develop their own talents and find activities they will enjoy.

My passion is reading and my aim is for every child to not only be able to read well but also to develop a love of reading. Stories are read aloud every day in school and high quality texts support all areas of learning. Children are also given time and support to find the books that they will enjoy. We work together with 7 Stories and have regular author visits into school.

At Dinnington we pride ourselves on building strong relationships based on openness, honesty and and an abiding respect for each other. The children are encouraged to become independent, life-long  learners who have high expectations of themselves to achieve their best in all areas of their lives – to be successful in their friendships, developing their own talents and to achieve their best academically.

Although the school is rapidly expanding it maintains a village, community feel where everyone works together and supports each other.

We very much welcome visitors. If you are considering applying for a place at Dinnington First School for your child we would be more than happy to show you around – please get in touch.

Yours Faithfully

Caroline Ash
