Welcome to St Dunstan's Catholic Primary School
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you find it informative and interesting.
My name is Mr. Kenny and I have been head teacher here for 17 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.
At our last Section 48 in 2015 inspection we were described as an ‘outstanding Catholic school’ and our Section 8 OFSTED in January 2019 said that we are a ‘Good’ school.
As a Catholic school we pride ourselves on the work that we do to develop the spirituality of our children; we are very inclusive of all children, of all faiths, and none. We ensure that our children respect each other and work to help the whole community.
We work to be inspired by our patron, Saint Dunstan, who worked tirelessly to bring peace to all around him; we look also to be inspired by our house saints such as Sister Teresa who worked for the poor, St. Maximillian Kolbe, who gave his life for others, St John-Paul, who inspired so many of us, St. Elizabeth Seton who was so charitable, St. Oscar Romero who was so incredibly brave and Blessed John Henry Newman who taught us so much.
Our latest OFSTED inspection was carried out in January 2019. The inspector said:
We pride ourselves on many things including:
Inappropriate Social Media App
Please click here for more information from West Midlands Police.
The internet is a fantastic place overflowing with knowledge, games and communities of people, and, just like pupils across the country, the pupils here at St. Dunstan’s Primary School spend a great deal of time using the internet within school and at home.
However, it is a growing concern that whilst using the internet children can gain access to content that is not age appropriate. As a school we have regular safeguarding training and would like to offer any parents wanting to update their own E-Safety knowledge, to click on the link below.

We are very ambitious in hoping for the very best for our children. Our vision’s main aim will always be for our children to grow into ‘Lifelong learners’:
Our teachers will inspire and challenge all who work within our school, nurturing confidence in the children to continue a lifelong journey of learning.
Our children will be confident, fair, tolerant and caring and will persevere when challenged on their lifelong learning journey.
Our homes will be environments where learning is valued and family’s work together to motivate and inspire one another to learn throughout their lives.
The relationship between our parish and school community continues to thrive so we can all grow in our lifelong journey of faith.
