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.

Dalmain is a good school (Ofsted 2014). Behaviour and safety of pupils is judged to be outstanding.

“The quality of teaching has remained consistently good with some outstanding practice”

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.
