Caring and supportive

Putting children first

So everyone succeeds

In our incredible setting



We are proud to be a member of the Learning Academy Partnership.

At Dunsford Community Academy we provide children with an excellent early years and primary education, in partnership with our families and local community.  Our children are at the very heart of everything we do. We want the best for our community and our guiding motivation is for children to be aspirational, brave and thoughtful, so that they can have a positive influence on the world around them.

At first glance you may think we are a tiny rural school, but when you visit you realise that our site is breath-taking. From a heated swimming pool, to a full sized football pitch, from our wild garden to our Forest area. Our provision outdoors is exceptional we use it to its fullest advantage with swimming lessons from reception each week during the summer, to Forest school all year round from Nursery. Pupils are proud and excited to play and learn here.

The academy truly is the heart of the community, where parents and locals work in partnership to support pupils to know more and experience more; children are celebrated for their individuality in a creative and warm environment. Our curriculum is rich and balanced, providing a wide range of experiences and opportunities for all (on our extensive, well-equipped site and further afield). We empower children with the knowledge, skills, confidence and resilience they need to thrive and achieve academic excellence. We also support them to develop into positive, confident young people, equipping them for the challenges of the future.

Thank you for all you are doing for our children. We are very lucky.

I want you to know you have my whole hearted support, trust and thanks.


It is exhilarating and rewarding to work with such wonderful children, their families and the wider community. Working with such dedicated staff and Local Committee members enables successful outcomes for all, in all areas of the curriculum aiming for an enriched and creative experience.


Come to Dunsford Community Academy to meet new friends and learn new things. All the teachers are caring and they teach us well and expect us to work hard!



A broad and balanced curriculum stimulates your child to acquire knowledge and develop individual skills, allowing them to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. Lessons build on prior learning to support pupils to develop schema, so that they can know and can access more.



Our academy is like a big family. We have created an environment where children can feel happy and confident to contribute and aspire to achieving high educational standards.



We aim to serve our local community by providing an education of the highest quality .
