About Dundale Primary School and Nursery

Dundale is a single form entry community school with approximately 200 pupils and a vision that all children thrive, love learning and develop resilient foundations for success in life as positive members of society.

It is anticipated that we will be joining the Ridgeway Learning Partnership from September 2021. Being part of the Ridgeway Learning Partnership will not only give our new Headteacher the opportunity to develop their career but the necessary local support and expertise to raise both standards of teaching and learning and pupil attainment.

Arranging a visit to Dundale Primary School and Nursery

A site visit to experience the school first-hand is encouraged but, if not possible due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will be offering the opportunity to have an informal discussion with a senior leader and / or governor. Please contact the Office Manager, Mrs. Trudi Fryer on 01442 822421 or email officemanager@dundale.herts.sch.uk for further information.
