Welcome from our Headteacher

Welcome to Dorothy Barley Junior Academy!


Welcome to Dorothy Barley Junior Academy. We are a popular four form entry junior school with a current roll of 440 children. We also have a 12 place Additional Resource Provision for children with Moderate Learning Difficulties on site. Our children come from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds and we value and celebrate the diversity and sense of community this brings to our school.


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.


In February 2017 the school was awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark, the assessor noted that 'Dorothy Barley Junior Academy is an excellent example of outstanding inclusive practice.'


We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
