St Birinus Primary School

St Birinus Primary School
Dorchester St. Birinus Church of England School is a small village school where we seek to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment with opportunities for all children to develop their potential as joyful, confident, proud, healthy and independent individuals with key skills for life.

As you can appreciate, there is only so much information that can be gained from our website, however there is no substitute for visiting the school. If you would like to see St Birinus Primary School in action, I would be delighted to show you around. Please contact the school office on 01865 340081 to arrange a visit.

  • Welcome back !

    I hope you had a great Easter break and enjoyed eating your Easter eggs and as always the wonderful weather has welcomed us back to school.   We start an important term for our Year 6 children as they approach their SATs week in May.

    Our Big Write theme this term is all based around ‘Chocolate’ – this time we are planning a big adventure linked to this theme towards the end of the Summer term, which should be very exciting.  It makes me hungry thinking about the topic.

  • School Closure 2/3/18

    In common with other local schools, I have taken the decision to close the school tomorrow (2nd March) due to predicted adverse weather conditions. Low overnight temperatures are likely to make conditions worse. For the safety of the children on the site and the staff being able to get safely to and from school, this seems to be the best course of action.   See you all on Monday. 

  • An update for today

    School will remain open until 3.15pm today but there will be no after school clubs.We are planning to open tomorrow but if this changes we will let you know.

  • Welcome Back

    I hope you all had a relaxing half term holiday and that we are ready to start the half term leading up to Easter.

    Class Topic Events

    This term sees the return of the class topic events, where each class can share their exciting topic work from the Spring term.  These events will be at the end of this term, but I am including the dates now so that you can put it in your diary.

    Hedgehog Class  2:30pm – Thursday 22nd March
    Squirrel Class  2:30pm – Tuesday 27th March
    Fox Class  2pm – Tuesday 27th March
    Owl Class 2:30pm – Wednesday 28th March

     

    World Book Day – Thursday 1st March 

    Don’t forget to come dressed as your favourite book character and where possible to bring the book with you to share.  This is different to other dressing up days as there is no charge for this non-uniform day. …

  • This Term’s Big Write – Fantasy

    It has been an unusual day today with a variety of fantasy characters and props roaming the school.  This has all happened to launch our Big Write fantasy theme – it is always great to see the amazing variety of costumes – well done everyone especially on some great designs!
