Come and join the Dore Orienteering Team in September! :)



Dore Primary School is accredited with the highest level of the UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award. See the report here.

 We are delighted to announce that we have now achieved the FULL International School Award and we are the only Primary School in Sheffield to have gained the award at this level. "This is an outstanding Impact Evaluation in every aspect and a credit to your school. It is balanced and well-presented and it is very encouraging to see how your activities are completely cross-curricular and how you link them so appropriately to relevant global themes that you have incorporated very fluently into what is equally excellent work. "

DPS has been awarded the GOLD School Games Kitemark for excellent practice in PE and Games

DPS has been asked to share its good practice and to support the Sheffield LA as a LEAD school for behaviour and safety for Sheffield Schools. 

See the feedback following an ambassador tour of the school!
