Ipplepen Primary School is very fortunate in occupying one of the most spacious and attractive sites in the whole of Devon, with a large playground, extensive playing field and an environmental area with pond.

The school has recently been upgraded and now boasts seven purpose built classrooms, a brand new computer suite with 18 computers, a library and a large hall which can easily accommodate the whole school for assemblies and has ample room for drama, music, P.E. and dance.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which closely matches the requirements of the National Curriculum. We cater for children of all ability and strive to ensure that every child reaches his/her full potential. Our standards in the three core subjects, English, mathematics and science, are consistently above the national average.

We believe that living in Devon gives us wonderful learning opportunities, which we try to use to the full. As examples, Year 2 go to Teignmouth to contrast the River Teign and the docks to the seaside resort. Year 5 spend a residential visit learning about Dartmoor. Year 6 spend 2 days in Totnes and a week at the Start Bay Centre, Slapton, studying rivers and coasts. OFSTED highlighted our use of 'field trips' and the cross curricular links with other subjects as a major strength of the school.

We have a host of extra curricular activities which include football, netball, tag rugby, kwik cricket, athletics, chess, music, French and an environmental club. 

Each year we take part in the South Devon Music Proms at the English Riviera Centre and the South Devon Dance Festival in Totnes. We also enter the local sporting leagues and cup competitions and have been very successful in recent years.

But most of all, we try to create a friendly, stimulating  atmosphere in which all children have the opportunity to thrive.
