Welcome from the Headteacher
Thank you for visiting our website and welcome to our church school.
At St. George's CE VA Primary School, children are at the heart of the school. We want to inspire our children to love learning and therefore are passionate about making learning fun and meaningful. How fortunate we are to be located in the wonderful Isle of Purbeck, with its World Heritage Jurassic coastline on our doorstep facilitating such a fantastic love of living and learning. Come rain or shine, our Reception pupils love nothing better than pulling on their wellies and walking out into fields, that surround us as far as the eye can see, in order to collect leaves and natural resources to inspire their understanding of the natural world. Whatever the season, there’s so much to love and learn from simply ‘living in the moment’ and experiencing the outdoors. That’s why we have a strong connection with the Forest Schools project, too, so children of all ages can
Our hardworking team endeavour to provide children at St. George's with the best possible educational experience from Reception through to Year 6. All members play a part in creating a supportive, safe and stimulating learning environment, within a caring Christian community. We are proud to offer an environment with a strong community spirit. Staff, governors, parents, carers and many willing volunteers work together for the benefit of our pupils. We have a thriving and enthusiastic PTA working tirelessly to provide so many extras for our children.
We aspire for our ideal Year 6 leaver, upon leaving St. George's, to have learnt to be compassionate towards others, honest, reliable and resilient in order to cope with and overcome obstacles faced in both school and life. It is our intention to inspire our children to think about the wider world and how we can make it a better place for all, so that children learn to develop positive relationships and life-skills required to become confident, independent, caring and trustworthy citizens, who celebrate diversity.
As an all-inclusive school, we respect differences by learning to listen carefully to others, whilst being prepared to forgive others for mistakes in a non-judgemental way. We strive for the very best outcomes for all of our pupils, whatever their individual starting points and backgrounds, not only academically, but on a personal level, too.
*Visitors to our school are warmly welcomed, so please ring and book an appointment via the school office to see what we can offer you and your child.
I look forward to meeting you.
*Footnote: Sadly, Covid-19 restrictions currently in force mean that parent tours are not permitted at this time as recommended by Dorset Council (effective from October 2020).
However, we have produced a range of videos on this website instead to provide you with an insight into how we endeavour to 'live life in all its fullness' here at St. George's:
