Welcome to Dawlish Primary School website. We hope that you will find this website helpful in keeping members of our school community informed about important information, learning and events at our school.


We are a vibrant and forward thinking community with proud and enthusiastic pupils who want to achieve the best. Our dedicated staff team works hard to create an exciting learning environment, tailored to each and every child, providing the opportunity to achieve their full potential.


We serve a supportive and welcoming community. We aim to continue our strong relationship with parents/carers, as this partnership is important in helping our pupils to achieve the greatest success.


Opossum Federation


Dawlish Primary School is a member of the Opossum Federation of Schools. The Opossum Federation was formed in 2014 and currently comprises four primary schools in east London and works in partnership with other schools through informal networks or Service Level Agreements.


The Federation is built on three core objectives – enriching lives, unleashing possibilities and building futures; these aims are at the heart of all we do within our family of schools. We strive to ensure that our schools retain their individual identities whilst ensuring that they are reflective of our Federation’s ethos.


We aim for our schools to be inclusive organisations, where we recognise and celebrate all abilities and encourage our pupils to become independent thinkers. Staff from across our federated and partner schools support each other and work successfully in partnership to ensure all the pupils in our community receive the best education possible.


By working in partnership with a view to positively sharing our knowledge, experiences and skills, we are confident that we can benefit, not only as individuals, but also as a collective.

We hope you enjoy our website and that you get a flavour for the opportunities we provide at Dawlish Primary School.
