We are a large inclusive school which was graded ‘GOOD’ in all areas by Ofsted in 2017. The report noted that ‘pupils are making good progress in all subjects’ and ‘have positive attitudes to learning. They behave well, work hard and are keen to succeed’.

Why Dorothy Barley Junior Academy?

We are located in Dagenham close to Becontree Tube Station in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. The school shares a site with Dorothy Barley Infant School. We have a good relationship with the Infant School and all children from the infant school are guaranteed a place at our academy.

Since 1st June 2014 we have been part of the REAch2 Academy Trust (Raising Educational Achievement for Children). This is primary charitable trust and a family of primary academies that have strong reputations for delivering outstanding education for all pupils.

We are an Inclusion Quality Mark Flagship School and we hold a number of other nationally recognised awards like, the Eco Schools Award, Healthy Schools Award and the Social, Moral, Spiritual & Cultural Quality Mark (Gold). We are a school striving for excellence and we always put our children first.

We look forward to meeting you!
