Welcome from Mrs Stirling our Head Teacher
Hello and thank you for your interest in Dunstable Icknield Lower School.
I would like to introduce you to our school and to tell you why I am sure that we can provide the ideal environment for your child to learn and develop.
Firstly, our staff are all committed to continuously improving what we teach and how we teach it, so that we create the best possible learning experience for every single child.
However, we believe that school life is about more than academic progress; it is also about helping children gain experiences and learn the values and behaviours that help them take part in, and contribute to the wider community.
That is why we are proud not only to have been recognised as an Outstanding school in our latest OFSTED inspection but also to have been accredited as a Values-based Education School.
Values-based Education is an internationally recognised approach to teaching that helps develop values such as patience, tolerance and respect to create a strong learning environment that enhances academic attainment, while developing social and relationship skills.
At Dunstable Icknield we believe that our success comes from building close partnerships between all those involved in the school – not just the teachers and children, but also the parents, carers, families and governors.
The involvement of parents and carers greatly enhances the life of our school. We currently have parents and carers who support in the classroom or on days out, others who help out at school events, and of course those who have joined our Parent Teacher Association or Board of Governors. Every bit of support helps improve the learning experience we can offer the children.
I hope that you will be interested in finding out more about Dunstable Icknield and we would welcome the chance to meet you and show you and your child around our school.
