School Vision

Dobwalls: one and all


Dobwalls strives to inspire and teach skills for life while creating cherished memories.  We are a caring inclusive community who values creativity, independence and individuality. For all children, academic excellence is a priority to reach their potential.


Caring – we encourage friendships and support from peers to create a warm, welcoming and stimulating learning environment.  We value kindness hugely as seen in one of our Diamond Rules which is ‘care for everyone and everything’.  We listen, support and understand children to support their emotional development through our School Council and Eco-Council where children learn to articulate their thoughts and opinions.


Inclusive – we provide exciting activities and opportunities for all through our carefully planned enrichment offer including trips off-site and purposeful planned activities within school. We are determined to provide individualised support for each and every pupil so that all meet their potential.


Community - we are set in the heart of Dobwalls and committed to working together with all members within our community including staff, parent, volunteers, Governors.


Creativity – we celebrate creativity, ideas and personal talents through our carefully planned curriculum, use of outdoor learning, dedicated themed days and love of singing.  We instill a passion for learning by passionate staff who demonstrate love for learning.


Independence – we use SECRET skills to support the development to enable children to become confident, reflective and resilient members of society. 


Individuality – we take time to get to know children individually and encourage time to talk to share opinions and emotions. we foster children’s uniqueness to develop their understanding of the wider world and their sense of place in Cornwall.
