WE LOOK FORWARD
TO MEETING YOU
As you start to think about leaving primary school and the move to secondary school, you should remember why you chose Dame Elizabeth Cadbury.
Our Values - Respect, Aspire, Believe, Commit.
At Dame Elizabeth Cadbury School we are proud that our pupils embrace the DEC values in everything they do. Our school community is proudly diverse, and we do not tolerate bias, prejudice, or discrimination of any kind – whether conscious or unconscious – and we instil in our pupils nothing less than the urge to go out into the world and make it a better place.

Frequently Asked Questions
Each lesson lasts from 60 minutes. We don’t have bells here so your teacher will tell you when a lesson is drawing to a close and it’s time to move to your next lesson. You will be expected to walk into your classrooms sensibly and quietly, take out your equipment and wait to be invited to be seated. All your teachers will have allocated you a seat when you first begin so you will know where you are to be seated.
Each lesson will be different. You will usually have a book for a lesson where you will capture all your learning. Teachers will give you feedback in your books too so it’s essential that you keep them neat and well presented. Lessons are chunked into sections by the teacher so that your learning is being built upon over the hour.
Some of the ways that we help you to learn and recall knowledge are quizzing, using knowledge organisers, experiments, and practicals, reading, discussing ideas and topics and recording or reporting through writing.
We will check your progress through regular assessments and give you feedback on how to improve or develop your ideas. You will be given targets and actions to take to make progress for each assessment that you complete.
You can buy refreshments at break and lunch time. You will be informed where you will dine when you start in September. Leadership will supervise you during break and lunch. We do not go ‘out to play’ at lunch time as we only have 30 minutes to dine. At the end of each break and lunch session, you will be dismissed straight back to lessons.
The school website shows you a list of equipment, uniform and kit that you will need. It is expected that in every classroom based lesson you get your planner and equipment out on the desk ready to learn at the start of each lesson.
You can normally only go to the toilet at break and lunch. However, if you have a toilet pass for medical reasons, you will be allowed to go during lesson time.
