Welcome to Littletown

Welcome to the Littletown Primary School and Nursery website!

At our school, we aim for a high standard of education for all children that offers a wide range of learning opportunities. We have high expectations of behaviour that are based on respect, positive rewards and developing children’s sense of responsibility and self-esteem. We pride ourselves on our caring and supportive environment, where every child matters. We encourage special talents, skills and interests such as music, sport and art. We encourage children to be healthy, safe and to play an active part in the school and wider community.

The school currently has around 370 children, including our Nursery children, some of whom are only just three. Our buildings have been developed over the past few years to include a purpose-built nursery unit (1998) and a new computer suite (2005).
We are currently involved in the opening of a Childrens’ Centre on our site that will offer us opportunities to develop before and after school provision in the future, as well as support for the parents of our youngest children.

Please contact me for further information; I shall be happy to meet with you and your child and show you around our school.

About Out School

Littletown Primary School, situated on the southern side of the market town of Honiton, was first opened in 1972 to cater for around 150 pupils. Since then, the rapid growth of Honiton has resulted in several additional phases of building to bring the school up to its present size: catering for around 400 pupils.

The opening of our purpose-built nursery in June 1998 followed by a new computer suite in March 2005, completed our present facilities. The gradual installation of interactive whiteboards throughout the school, the improvement of our Reception Class outdoor area and the development of our wildlife and pond areas are current projects.


Welcome to the Littletown School Governor Pages

Role of the Governing Body

The Governing Body helps the headteacher and professional staff to decide the school’s ethos, strategy and improvement so that its pupils learn most effectively and achieve their full potential. It offers leadership, support, constructive advice, a second opinion on proposals and help where needed. It also challenges, asks questions, seeks information, and tries to arrive at the best solution. The headteacher and professional staff are accountable to the Governing Body for the school’s management and performance.

The Governing Body takes a strategic role and acts as a critical friend to the school. It sets aims and objectives and agrees, monitors and reviews school policies, targets and priorities.

School Governors, who are we?

School governors are people from the school’s community and beyond who want to help the school to provide good education for children. In addition to the Headteacher, the Governing Body of Littletown School is made up of the following people:

  • parents, who have been elected by other parents at the school;
  • staff members, elected by the staff of the school;
  • people put on to the Governing Body by the Education Authority because of their interest and experience in helping to run schools; and
  • people co-opted from the Community to be Governors because of special skills or interests they have.

The membership of the Governing Body gradually changes over time. Normally a Governor will serve for a minimum of four years but the numbers of each type of Governor stays the same. The Headteacher can choose whether or not to be a governor.

If you would like to contact the Governors please do so via the school.

The current members are listed below:

Mrs N Jackson Secretary  

There are currently vacancies in the governing body for one parent governor and one community governor. Please contact the school to register interest in filling either of these vacancies.

How does the Governing Body do its job?

The Governing Body meets twice each term. One of these meetings is a “Business Meeting”, to deal with more routine matters, the other a “Development Meeting” which is intended to allow the Governing Body to take a longer view on school development. The bulk of the actual work is done by two committees:

- People, Curriculum and Learning; and
- Finance and Environment

The committees are supplemented by Working Parties, made up of Governors from one or other of the committees, which deal with specific projects as and when they arise.

Governors’ Information Centre

Meeting agendas, minutes of meetings and other governor information that may be of interest to parents, staff and visitors can be found in the Governors’ Information Centre in the school entrance foyer.
