Dear Parent, Welcome to Dunbog Primary School.
We value the very good partnership we have with all of our parents and carers and know that all children benefit from this close association.
Working together is the very best way to ensure that the children in our care receive the very best possible opportunities to learn and to achieve their full potential. All the staff at Dunbog look forward to getting to know you and your family throughout your child’s school years and afterwards as they move forward in their lives.
Our catchment area is mostly rural and includes many small villages and hamlets. The countryside around the school is stunning and has many areas of natural beauty. Our school regularly uses this outdoor area and we all value the learning that takes place in an “outdoor classroom.” We have established regular visits for a nearby woodland, where we use the forest as a context for learning. The children also learn forest skills and an appreciation of the magic of nature. In school, there are opportunities for learning in the school grounds and garden. The children have begun to use loose materials such as ropes, tarpaulins, shells, sticks and tyres to enhance their play.
We have three classes in school and our roll is 45. At present the classes are P1/2/3, P4/5 and P6/7.
Our staff and parents work as a very effective team. We have 3 full time teachers; we also have 2 pupil support assistants, learning support (part time), a clerical assistant and janitor. We also benefit from volunteers from our parent and wider community. These volunteers help in class with reading, maths and other activities and support our forest trips and outdoor excursions.
Newburgh nursery is our main feeder nursery school, but we also work closely with The Secret Garden nursery and nurseries in Cupar.
We have a very effective transition practice. We invite new primary-one pupils into school during the summer term prior to their entry to school and also invite parents to come along to our Shared Starts in term 4. This helps staff get to know new families and the children get to know the other children in their class.
We also value the very positive transition between Dunbog and our local secondary Bell Baxter. Our pupils attend a curriculum evening with their parents and have 2 full day visits to Bell Baxter in their last term of Primary 7 as well as various sporting events throughout the year. These ensure our pupils are prepared for this important change in their lives.
If you have not made up your mind about which school your child will attend or you would simply like to visit us and see around the school, then please telephone, write or email to arrange a visit. A “Choosing a School” booklet is available on request.
Staff run various after school clubs during the year including tennis, badminton and Sumdog.
