"Key Strengths include pupils' outstanding spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and their excellent understanding of how to live healthy lives both physically and emotionally."  Ofsted 2009 

"The best part about Dore Primary School is that all the teachers will listen to your ideas and talk to you. They will always help you if you have a problem. Everybody cares for each other. We are one BIG team."  Y3 pupil


We hope that you have a very enjoyable half-term break.

School is closed Monday 27th-Friday 31st October.

When the children return on Monday 3rd November we will be collecting Harvest gifts following our Harvest Assembly on 22nd October 2014.  We would must appreciate food stuff from the Burngreaves Food Bank Shopping List HERE, or a financial gift to be sent to the Romanian orphanage that Dore pupils have supported for MANY years. Thank you :)

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 for Outstanding Development 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!
