Our Curriculum

At Dalmain, we believe that children’s learning is about more than ticking boxes. That’s why everything we do is focused on providing a broad and balanced curriculum for our children.

Maths Curriculum
English Curriculum
Science Curriculum


Dalmain's last short Ofsted inspection took place in May 2018 and the school was judged to be good overall.
The school has demonstrated strong practice and marked improvement in specific areas, which may indicate that the school has improved significantly overall. The school’s next inspection is likely to be a section 5 inspection.

Pupil Premium & Sport Premium

Our Pupil Premium strategy reflects the school ethos & culture: it balances academic rigour in teaching and learning with creativity through immersing children in a rich curriculum of music, dance, sport and philosophy.
