Dovecotes Primary School

Dovecotes Primary is a school that encourages all its students to learn and encourage each other to do the absolute best that they can with their time here.

Spread your wings, learn new things, fly as high as you can.

Operating as usual


A new course led by Adult Education will be commencing after half term. Unfortunately this is only available to parents of pupils at the school but is an excellent, and free, opportunity for those who are hoping to learn more about life in the UK.

Our school choir had a fantastic afternoon out at the Halls in the city centre this week. The Music School put on an incredible show and we were able to sing along to the songs we had been rehearsing for weeks. It was an unforgettable experience for all!

Wishing the very best to all our Year 6 pupils sitting their Sats tests next week. Remember that Sats are only a tiny glimpse of who you are. You are all wonderful and have got this!


As we approach end of year and key stage assessments, it is really important children get their rest. Computing club's message highlights the importance of this relating to devices. Thanks for your continued support.

Pupils across the whole school loved watching the chicks hatch and grow. Year 1/2 absolutely loved holding them last week. The children were sad to say goodbye to them on Friday as they returned home ready to be placed on farms and small holdings!


We are taking part in the Big Battery Hunt up until June 12th. As a school we are collecting old batteries (AA, AAA, C and D) which can be placed in a box in the school reception - there are big prizes for schools who collect the most per pupil!!


Parents and carers of Dovecotes Primary School, we would love to know your views on our after school childcare provision - Dove Club - and whether there is the demand to extend it. Please let us know by completing this survey. Thank you in advance.

Dovecotes have some very exciting visitors at school for the next fortnight! We had a delivery of eggs on Monday that started to hatch today in their incubator! The children have observed three hatching today which was very exciting and we can't wait to see how many more have hatched over night in the morning!

Year 3/4 had the best time at Dunfield House last week. Campfires, archery, swimming, disco dancing, orienteering and visits to the small breeds farm and Owl Sanctuary. Memories were made that will last a lifetime.


Children's safety online is just as important as in the 'real world' - be sure to have conversations with your children about both! Let's make our online world a better place 😃💻📱


It was lovely to receive our certificate from the NSPCC to say thank you for the time and work that Dovecotes Primary spent in delivering their important messages about how children can Speak Out to Stay Safe. Thank you!


Here is some Online Safety advice from our Computing club... Do you know how to keep your children 'online safe'?

Dovecotes and Wolverhampton has lots of canals and yesterday Y2 walked to the closest canal on the estate. They looked at the features of a canal and discussed the use of the canal for transport back in the 1700s.

Our Early Help officer Trudi came into school to launch the Junior PCSO programme yesterday. She has never ran the programme with Year 3 children before and was amazed at how mature our pupils were. We are so proud and look forward to the next 5 weeks of learning with her.
