Welcome to Dollis Junior School. I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of our wonderful school. Dollis is a diverse and vibrant multicultural 3 form entry Junior school located in Mill Hill, North West London. We value and celebrate the rich linguistic and cultural diversity in our school and the local community.
Our ethos is to create a learning environment where every child recognises that they have many talents and strengths but also to be reflective and identify areas they need to work on and improve.
We support our pupils through their learning journey by encouraging a ‘can do’ attitude, having high aspirations, high expectations and showing that mistakes are always a learning opportunity.
We believe that every child can achieve great things and it is our role, working closely with our families, to ensure that every child is the best they can be. In our school we are committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning achieved through a combination of challenge, support, encouragement and praise. We aim high in order to help our children be successful individuals inside and outside of school.
Alongside learning, we pride ourselves on our values based approach which has created a school which is nurturing, positive and always welcoming. Our core values of 'respect, honesty and kindness' underpin everything we do with relationships built and developed on mutual respect. Our school community is encouraged to think about these and our 19 other values when making choices and reflecting upon the choices we have made. We have a supportive pastoral approach which is designed to help pupils develop a strong sense of responsibility for themselves, their peers and the wider world.
We are fortunate to have a dynamic, dedicated and passionate team of teachers and support staff who provide a stimulating, engaging and creative curriculum. As well as teaching the National Curriculum requirements, through our wider horizons sessions we are able to broaden our children’s skills and life experiences.
We enjoy working closely with our families and recognise the importance of establishing strong home/school partnerships. We are continually looking for ways to enhance these relationships and encourage our families to take on an active role in our school. We recognise that we need to work together to help each child reach their potential.
I look forward to hopefully having the opportunity of working with you and your child and welcoming you to our Dollis family.
