Mrs Cassie Buchanan,
Headteacher

Creativity and excellence are at the heart of everything we do at Charles Dickens Primary School.

Children are encouraged to work to the best of their abilities. The academic curriculum offers challenge through innovative teaching and projects, which focuses on developing the talents of each child.

Our aim is that as the children grow in confidence, so does their desire to question and discuss, to reflect and apply their learning. Our distinctive approach to learning, with the creative arts at its core helps children excel academically. Learning through doing, through collaboration, through linking subjects in topic based learning, all lie at the heart of our educational ethos.
