Welcome to the Dhekelia Primary School website
If you are moving to Dhekelia Station please make sure you contact us directly at the school before arriving in Cyprus. Please email our mobility clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school office.
Dear Parents and Children,
I would like to begin by welcoming you to the Dhekelia Primary School website and hope that it gives you a glimpse into our school.
As the Headteacher of Dhekelia Primary School, or ‘DPS’ as we are affectionately known, I am proud of our enthusiastic pupils and our dedicated, hardworking staff team. Dhekelia Primary is a good school as judged by Ofsted in 2014.
Here at DPS we strive to make the most of the unique opportunities that living in Cyprus offers and our rich curriculum reflects this. The work and ethos of our school is underpinned by our six core values which are: achievement, respect, responsibility, compassion, happiness and independence. Our turtle logo represents these core values with each coloured section linking to a different core value.
As a Service Children’s school we are well aware of the anxieties that mobility can have on our families and we work hard to ensure that our pupils settle in quickly. Every child who comes into our school is warmly welcomed and equally valued. Parents and carers are a vital part of our school and we actively encourage their involvement in the life of the school.
We believe in working in partnership with others to improve the outcomes for our children and we strive to ensure strong links between our school and the wider community here in Dhekelia.
We hope that you find this website useful and look forward to welcoming you and your family to Dhekelia Primary School in the near future.
Mrs Rachel Thomas
