LOOK OUT for our annual FirstNEWS Reading Challenge.

During the whole of Spring 2 starting on Monday 23rd February we are asking children to complete the NEWS challenges on FirstNEWS.  Children who complete all 5 weeks and bring their sheets into school at the end of term will receive a Gold Certificate :)

Why wait?  You can start practising now as every week ALL the FirstNEWS challenges are uploaded in files at the bottom of our HOMEWORK page.

We have recently been assessed as a Champion School for Music by the Sheffield Music Hub.

We are delighted that our enthusiasm for music and vibrant wider curriculum has been evaluated in this way. See the Report here :) and our Music page here.


URGENT! Please help keep our children safe and our neighbours happy by WALKING to school or by PARK and STRIDE.

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. "
