Manor Primary School was first opened as a Junior School in 1973 and was re-organised into a Primary School in 1991. The school occupies a pleasant and interesting site on a south facing slope with views across the Erme Valley.

The main building is on two levels with ten classrooms, hall, practical areas, library, music and resources rooms, pullman corridor and kitchen. There is also a converted barn, which serves as an extra classroom and three mobile classrooms, two of which are occupied by the Manor Pre-School and Out of School Clubs.


The school caters for children aged 4-11. A child is not of compulsory school age until the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday. It is the policy of the Devon Authority that a child may be admitted to school before their fifth birthday. A child may therefore start school: In September if their birthday falls on or between 1st September and the end of February. In January if their birthday falls on or between 1st March and 31st August.

We can admit 40 children each year into the foundation class in accordance with the school's Criteria of Admission and Designated Area which are attached to this prospectus.


The curriculum at Manor Primary is considered to be child-centred where consideration is given to what the children know, are interested in and can do, as well as what they can usefully learn next.

Children are viewed as individuals, each with their own characteristics and learning needs. Manor Primary attempts to honour the uniqueness of every child while recognising that each individual is a member of a community, needing to learn how to help others and to use help from others as well as working individually.

Our central concern in planning the curriculum is to support the school's broad educational aims and to meet the identified needs of the children through its formal programme of lessons and extracurricular activities. We firmly believe that the primary curriculum should be based on the reality of the child. The early years of a child's education are vital and we should create firm foundations in their knowledge and understanding of basic concepts and provide them with the skills to learn, and to continue to learn in a rapidly changing world.


At Manor, we offer an extensive range of clubs covering a wide spectrum of interests. Clubs include virtually all sporting domains from football and rugby to athletics and cricket. Sporting clubs run all year round and lead into many locals and County wide festivals and tournaments. Health, fitness and teamwork skills are also considered integral to any successful sporting clubs. Many other clubs include those from dance, drama and the arts. We also take part in the Junior Ten Toors event and have an active ground improvement club.


As a follow on from ‘clubs’, Manor primary school commits itself to entering many local IAAC and Devon-wide festivals and sporting tournaments. This caters for children who seek to further their skills and take part in competitive sport at a range of levels, from friendly to country wide recognition.

We have a proud tradition and have an impressive record in many of the competitions held. We seek to share all sporting achievements, both inside and outside school in assemblies, and promote healthy lifestyles in our children.
