Welcome to Dawlish School.


At Dawlish we strive to provide the children in our care with a high quality of education. Our staff are committed to setting high standards and motivating the children towards effective learning.

Dawlish is an inclusive school, we recognise and celebrate all abilities and encourage our children to become Independent thinkers.


Dawlish Primary School is a member of the Opossum Federation, in hard federation with Newport and Thorpe Hall Primary Schools  and part of a soft federation with Oakhill Primary School. These partnerships help us to implement and develop strategies to further enhance teaching and learning at our school.


We serve a loyal and supportive community. We aim to continue our strong relationship with the local community by ensuring effective communication between the school's stakeholders.
