This is what Doddiscombsleigh Community School Wants to be:

A centre of excellence in education

A community in which all members work in partnership

A community where everyone is valued and respected and has the confidence to achieve their best


  • To develop self-awareness , a positive self- image and the confidence to take advantage of opportunities
  • To develop each child’s own initiative, talents and personalities
  • To help children develop lively and enquiring minds, the ability to question and argue rationally and to apply themselves to tasks and physical skills
  • To support and promote attitudes, practices and understanding conducive to good health
  • To help children acquire knowledge and skills relevant to adult life and employment in a fast changing world
  • To help children use language and number efficiently
  • To help children develop a respect for religious and moral values, other races, religions and ways of life
  • To consolidate the importance of the school in the life of Doddiscombsleigh and for the community to be actively involved in the activities and development of the school
  • To establish the importance of positive, active citizenship and provide the motivation to join in
  • To help the children understand the world in which they live and the interdependence of individuals, groups and nations
  • To help children recognise and appreciate human achievements and aspirations
  • To help children develop appropriate relationships with other children and adults in both the school and wider world


A few years ago the governors of the school felt there was a need in the Teign Valley area for quality preschool provision. They set up the Doddiscombsleigh Pre-School group. The group has been very successful and many children from outside the area have transferred directly into the school as a result of their happy time at the Pre-School. Details of the times and cost of the group are available from Mrs Lancaster, the school administrator. Mrs Viv Lygo runs the Pre-School at present and will be delighted to offer prospective parents a visit by prior arrangement.

Because Pre-School and the school are linked so strongly, the children start school with much more confidence. They know the building, the teachers and the routines, so that starting school is less daunting. Ms Tong works closely with Pre-School in planning the curriculum and in sharing events and activities.
