Together We Achieve
Working Together To Achieve Excellence For All
* Kindness * Resilience * Independence * Teamwork * Honesty * Respect
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to both our school and our website. I am proud and honoured to serve Dunton Bassett Primary School and the community we serve. I am also the Executive Headteacher of our neighbouring school, Claybrooke Primary School, and we work together for the benefit of all children in our care.
Dunton Bassett Primary is part of the Inspiring Primaries Academy Trust, and we work closely with the other schools in our Trust for the benefit of all of our pupils.
Dunton Bassett Primary School is situated in the centre of the village and has been a focal point for the villagers and their children since 1849. The name Dunton Bassett is derived from Donitone, which roughly translates as “homestead on the hill” and Bassett, which is a family name and was added later. The school serves the village of Dunton Bassett and surrounding villages and residential areas. There are approximately 85 children on roll, housed in the original school building, as well as a newer, purpose-built two classroom block. We also have our own extensive grounds, including playgrounds, a school field and access to a copse.
Our vision at Dunton Bassett Primary is 'Together We Flourish' and we aim to achieve this by promoting our values of * Kindness * Resilience * Independence * Teamwork * Honesty * Respect. Everyone who plays a part in the life of Dunton Bassett Primary is very proud of the school and we are all working together to make it a fantastic and rewarding place to learn.
I hope that you will enjoy looking at our website and seeing a flavour of the many exciting learning opportunities that we offer to our children. If you would like to see the school in action first-hand, visits are warmly welcomed; please contact our office staff, who will be able to assist you further.
