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.

  • Pickleball taster session

    Great fun was had by all who attended our Pickleball taster session last Saturday. Fundraising is going really well so hopefully we’ll soon have a lovely new surface to play on.

  • Sports Day

    Yesterday was our annual Sports Afternoon – we were so lucky with the weather.  As always it is so good to see the teamwork and support shown by the children for all their houses.  It was also fun to see the return of the parents’ races this year – eagerly requested by the children.   Thank you to the PTA for organising the cake stall for the afternoon – it raised £59.30. 

    Here is the winning team-the Blues.

  • Playground fundraiser

    You
    may have seen the new banner now being displayed on the front of the school
    building.  One of the school governors is
    working very hard on a fund raising project to try and raise £15,000 to
    resurface the school playground and to make it useable for various sports
    including a pickleball court for children and adult members of the community.  We hope to colour in the various characters
    on the banner as we reach our target.  We
    will also be doing our part by including the money raised from our sponsored
    walk (letter and sponsor form to be sent out soon).

  • Mrs Harding the daredevil!

    Congratulations to Mrs Harding for her abseil down the Abbey Tower on Saturday as part of the Dorchester Festival – it was great to witness her quickly descend as if she was Spiderwoman.
