Welcome to our website
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.
- 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.

- 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!
- Welcome Back
A Happy New Year to you all. I hope you had a relaxing Christmas and that we are now ready for this coming term. Although the weather seems to be snow free at the moment – it is always good to remind you of the severe weather information should the weather change very quickly, which obviously happened prior to the Christmas holidays.
I plan to start the KS2 choir again on Thursday after school from 18th January, this will be open to Y3 – Y6 children and we will be working towards a special Oxfordshire Pops Concert during the week beginning 12th March (date to be confirmed). This will be a great opportunity to sing with other schools. We have an allocated space of 15 children – please complete the form below if your child would like to join me for this event and practices.
