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 and well done!

    I hope you had a great Easter break and enjoyed eating your Easter eggs.  We start an important term for our Year 6 children as they approach their SATs week in May.

    Just before the holidays, we had some exciting news that Toby Atkinson-Seed has made it through the first round of the Radio 2 500 words competition – which is fantastic news – well done Toby – we have our fingers crossed for round 2!

    Congratulations also to Mylo Budd –  our first Kung Fu Reading Master who received his black certificate today !
