A message from our Early Years Team
The Early Years team at Dunalley are delighted to welcome you to our school. This is the beginning of a very exciting journey and it is important that your child feels happy and secure as they begin their school life.

At Dunalley, we recognise the importance of the relationships we have with our families and value the information you share with us about your child. You have been your child’s first teacher since the day they were born and you know them best. By working together, we can help your child to become the best they can be. With this in mind, please know that you are welcome to ask us questions and please be as open as possible with the team, as this will help us to support your child.
