Instow Community Primary School
Instow, EX39 4LU, UK Bideford
+44 (0)1271 860545

The School serves the area from the villages of Instow and Westleigh to Yelland, including the large slice of farmland in between. The school roll has grown considerably in recent years and ranges from around 130 pupils in September to nearly 150 in the summer term.

Class sizes and age ranges can vary from year to year, depending on the number of children in a particular age group. This is a recurring feature of village primary schools.


During their time at the school all children study the agreed National Curriculum. This consists of four core subjects, information technology, English, maths and science and six foundation subjects, history, geography, music, art, technology, and physical education.

The Foundation Stage, which begins at the age of three, prepares children for learning in Key Stage 1 and is consistent with the National Curriculum programmes of study taught at this level.

Children spend the last year of the foundation stage in the reception class within school.

Throughout the year groups, it is recognised that children learn at a different pace so each teacher plans accordingly so that lessons show a match to ability and a differentiation of expectation.


When we get to know a child, we can ascertain whether it is appropriate whether he or she needs special aspects in their teaching. It may be because of learning difficulties or behaviour problems or a medical need. The school has a special educational needs co-ordinator who is responsible for working with special needs children and overseeing individual plans for each child's progress. We operate a nationally recognised Reading Recovery Programme for younger children. This is a very successful early intervention strategy.
