Welcome to our Induction page for new families!

We are delighted that you are thinking joining the Dunsford Community Academy family in September 2023 and we would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to the Learning Academy Partnership.  We are really looking forward to working in partnership with you to ensure that your child has the best possible start to their primary education.

As a school, we work closely with parents, families and the local community to provide an exciting curriculum so that our children can be the best that they can be, live life to the full and play a genuinely transformative role in society

We believe the induction of a new child to our academy family is important, and crucial to ensuring their future success.  At Dunsford Community Academy, we do everything we can to ensure our families are fully informed about the journey ahead; the curriculum that will be taught, the approach to teaching in the Foundation Stage, as well as the practical arrangements of starting school.

Please visit other pages on our website, our Twitter page @DunsfordLAP or our Facebook page to find out more about our fabulous academy; we work extremely hard to keep everything up to date, sharing all of the fabulous learning that takes place each term.
