Mrs A Dowling, Head Teacher

Welcome to Okeford Fitzpaine CE Primary School and to our website!


I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of our lovely school. We are a school steeped in history, located at the very heart of its rural community.

At Okeford Fitzpaine CE Primary school, we “Encourage one another and build each other up” (Thessalonians 5:11) to be the best that we can be: the best learners, the best friends, the best people, in school and in the wider community, now and in the future.

We are a caring, happy school with a passion for children’s learning and well-being. As a small school we are able to personalise the learning every child receives, to ensure that all children make great progress from their starting points. Our children are known as individuals and valued for the contribution they make to our family. Each child is seen as a unique individual, loved by God and is equally valued and fully supported to do their very best in all they do. We believe strongly in working closely with our parents in all aspects of school life.

I look forward to welcoming you,

Annie Dowling
