What are we like?

Lots of fun and hard working too!

In our 2016 OFSTED inspection at the primary,the inspector, in addition to mentioning our high academic achievements, emu and flamingo said:

"You instil the British values of tolerance, friendship and respect in your pupils so that they are well prepared for life in modern Britain. All members of your vibrant school community are a pleasure to spend time with because they are friendly, confident and happy. Parents speak very highly of the school and appreciate the opportunities you provide for their children".

In our 2016 OFSTED inspection at the Nursery the inspector said:

"Members of staff maintain a calm and welcoming working atmosphere enabling children to settle quickly and to establish good routines for learning.  Exciting activities indoors and outside engage the children’s interest and, as a result, they persevere with their tasks and concentrate well.

Dulwich Wood Primary works hard to serve students and parents from the surrounding area, and takes great pride in its diversity and tolerance. As part of the Dulwich Wood Federation, it works closely with its partner school and Aardvark Children’s Centre in order to best provide for its pupils and ensure their personal and academic development.".
