At the heart of everything we do for children, families and our community is our safe, stimulating and inclusive learning environment where every member of our community is valued and respected. Ubuntu is an important word here at DBCPS which stems from an African concept that has at its heart the idea that a person is a person through other people. A phrase synonymous to Ubuntu is that ‘I am happy, if you are happy’ and that it takes a village to raise a child. There is a great deal more information on our Ubuntu page. In our happy and caring school we continually strive to provide an exciting, relevant and challenging curriculum.

DBCPS is a Growth Mindset school where all members of the community are encouraged to continually reflect and develop giving everyone the opportunity to succeed without fearing making a mistake. Children are encouraged to become independent, resilient learners, problem solvers, good communicators and a team player. Encouraging children to ask questions and being given the tools to find out supports the active learning we promote.
