About Us

Dovelands is located in the Western Park area of Leicester approximately one and a half miles to the west of the City centre. We are an ‘all through’ primary school catering for children across the 3 to 11 age range. At present we have 550 children on roll including the children in our part-time Early Years Foundation Stage classes, which makes us one of the largest Primary schools in the city.

Dovelands is a popular school which benefits from having parents who are interested in their children’s education and who wish to work closely with the school. Parents give generously of their time and skills and there is always a good response to initiatives that call for their support.

Despite being such a large school, there is a strong sense of community within and beyond the school, with many links to cultural and sporting organisations in the locality.
