We are a welcoming, inclusive family school with a strong Christian ethos, a sense of community and a commitment to excellence for all children in our care. We are ambitious in seeking to help each child discover who they are and what they are uniquely gifted to be and do. We do this by nurturing and rewarding the God-given talents of each child and responding to their individual needs. We want each child to be successful in their learning and to make a meaningful contribution to the world.
The Dawpool community are united in their ambition to create a school which embodies the person, love and work of Jesus Christ: a school which enables Christian values to flourish and where all children may experience the abundant life that Jesus offers. Pupils, parents, staff, church and governors work tirelessly to realise this vision. Together, we seek new ways to enhance our standards and achievements.
We have very close links with St Chad's Church, Irby and St Bartholomew's Church, Thurstaston. Our Christian values – known as the 'Fruit of the Spirit' – are embedded into the heart of the school.
