Mrs Becky Waters - Head Teacher
Welcome to Dogsthorpe Infant School in Peterborough. Our staff and governors work very hard to offer our children lots of learning opportunities set in bright, modern & colourful environments.
We strive to enable our little stars to dream, believe & shine throughout their first three years of formal education. Our infants behave well, make good progress and enjoy their learning.
We invite you to have a good look around this website and we warmly welcome visitors should you wish to see our school for yourself. You can then view its ten freshly decorated classrooms each with its own outside learning area & canopy. We also have two new themed sensory rooms, two new outside learning classrooms & Forest School each designed by our own teachers.
We have recently obtained new indoor & outdoor security cameras & a security company to protect our children and site, new iPads for every pupil, new iPad trolleys for every class and a new gold iPad Pro for every teacher.
There's colourful new school furniture in every corridor, TrilbyTV news screens for parents' use throughout the school, a new family meeting room with new sofas, privacy blinds and underfloor heating and we have new murals to inspire our pupils' learning and encourage family & community cohesion.
Our Learning Journey bus transports children on exciting learning journeys to other countries, under the ocean to feed sharks, travel into space or back in time to see the dinosaurs. Our newly-opened Book Nook offers them a quiet, colourful and exciting environment to find a cosy corner, grab a book and read. We also have our fully trained therapy dog to listen to them read or offer them a sticker or 'Ruby gift' for reading well or for a comforting cuddle if requested.
I am in the playground every morning from 8.40am to welcome you to a new day of learning at our 'Dream Believe Shine' school.
