Dovecote Green Primary School, located at Dubai Investments Park, provides a primary education to a very small community of 200 pupils.
The school is managed by Evolvence Education, part of Evolvence Knowledge Investments – owners of Repton School (just rated Outstanding in the latest KHDA inspection 2016-2017) and Foremarke. We are a community school that has been described by parents as a ‘wonderful small British school with a fantastic community spirit’.
Dovecote Green Primary School is currently the only UK curriculum school within the DIP area. The school provides a British education for pupils from FS1 to Year 6. As the school grows we have the capacity to educate up to 550 pupils.
All teachers have a teaching degree or BA with PGCE or equivalent.
There is a footpath linking the school to Green Community West to enable children to walk from their homes, as we encourage families to walk and cycle to school, as part of our healthy schools initiative. Dovecote Green has a selective intake clearly focusing on ability. Children are streamed in different subjects, tailoring material to individuals, nurturing those who need it whilst challenging gifted children.
The school covers “all National Curriculum subjects and set high standards in all.” Dovecote Green is closely linked to Repton senior school. Its current aim is to teach the children to finish year 6 at the required standard to pass the Repton entrance exam.
Facilities at the school are excellent, offering an attractive and ‘bright’ environment for learning. The school is set on a large plot of land, part of which is ripe for further development and expansion. The corridors are wide and bright – unlike many schools, there is natural light throughout the building. To the side of the main block is a very spacious indoor sports hall, and a multipurpose dance studio. There are two outdoor swimming pools – a 20 metre pool and a toddler pool. There are several spacious, covered, shaded play areas with artificial grass, two which have fantastic play equipment for the children to enjoy.
Extra-curricular activities offered by the school include rugby, engineering, swimming, gardening, dance, martial arts and football. Teacher-led extracurricular activities are free to all the pupils. Dovecote Green believes its strength lies, in catering firmly for ‘the whole child’, developing each child’s thinking skills in order to become a successful 21st century learner. Even when it reaches full capacity,
Dovecote Green will be a much smaller school than many found in Dubai which will appeal to parents seeking a more personal, holistic environment. Class sizes will be set at around 20 pupils maximum, and the focus of the school will be on educational quality and sports activities whilst developing strong links to the local community.
The school is in a good location for growth – just watch the area as Expo 2020 approaches, and with a
very defined set of objectives, has been described as a ‘school to watch’.
