My name is Mr. Kenny and I have been head teacher here for 11 years. St. Dunstan's is a great place to be with a very welcoming atmosphere that is given to us by our fantastic children and wonderful staff.
I hope that by looking at our website you will want to come and see our school in action and this is something you are always welcome to do.
In 2014, OFSTED said that ours was ‘a good school’ and that ‘working together has helped sustain the school’s good quality and improved it further since the previous inspection’.
When the diocese came to inspect our school they said that we were an ‘outstanding Catholic school’.
We pride ourselves on many things:
· Wonderful sporting achievements
· Excellent SATs results over the last 6 years
· Superb links with the secondary school (Bishop Challoner), to which 80% of our children go.
· A spirituality that recognises the importance of all faiths in the wonderfully multi-cultural city of Birmingham
· ... and of course very happy children.
We are very proud that Birmingham Local Authority and the diocese chose our school for a £2m extension to help with the growing population of Birmingham. Following the project’s completion we are proud to boast large air-conditioned classrooms across Key-Stage 1 and Key-Stage 2; we have very spacious Reception and Nursery classrooms with their own toilets and cloakrooms; the youngest children have their own playground where they play and learn throughout the day.
As a father of four children I know how important it is to know that your children are in a happy, safe place that will enable them to become citizens that we can all be proud of. St. Dunstan's is a place that does this.
As our friends in Bishop Challoner secondary school always say:
"When they come from St. Dunstan's they hit the floor running!"
