Hello and welcome to Black Torrington Primary School!

We may be one of the smallest schools in Devon, but we aim to be one of the best. We are a Church of England Controlled school and maintain many links with our local church, which is also our neighbour. We have access to the church at any time (services permitting) and use it for Harvest, Christingle service, Christmas play, Easter, the Leavers’ Service as well as at other times.

We have two classes with, at present, 15 full time children on roll. Our staffing compliment comprises a .6 teaching Head and 3 part time teaching staff.  One Mealtime Assistant, a caretaker, part time classroom assistant and part time administrator.

We believe in fostering positive attitudes to learning. One way in which we effect this is in our merit system, which rewards: good behaviour, politeness, helpfulness and good effort, as well as high academic achievement. You can find out more about our school by going to the Prospectus page.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum including extra – curricular activities. We participate in sporting events with other schools as well as visits to enhance our teaching and learning. Here are a few of the events or visits in which we participated over the academic year 2002 – 2003:

Easter hat competition, an Indian morning (geography and RE), Plymouth Argyle football coaching, basketball coaching, tag rugby tournament, Roadford reservoir (science), Widemouth Bay (geography), Burton art gallery (art and history), athletics competition with other local schools, fun sports day organised by the year sixes with a neighbouring school, a field trip to study a local river (geography), our own school sports day comprising both cooperative and competitive races, end of year trip to a local leisure park.

In addition, we believe in supporting charitable events wherever possible, for example:
Red Nose Day, Jeans for Genes, Operation Christmas Child, UNICEF Children in Iraq appeal.

Our extra – curricular activities vary from term to term and include: recorders, sport and art/craft.

We have a very supportive PTFA – their help and support is invaluable. Find out more about them on the PTFA page.

We would be delighted to hear from you should you wish your child to attend our friendly little school.

This is a school where “God in all we do” is lived out in the daily work, worship and management and where faith and the nurture of belief are regarded as important.

We believe our school community encompasses staff, parents, children, governors and friends of the school. We believe in working together as a team to achieve the highest standards of academic, cultural, physical, spiritual and moral development, including that of good manners.

We encourage an atmosphere of openness and respect within the school community to ensure each individual feels valued.

We aim to promote an ethos whereby pupils work and play both collaboratively and independently and share an enthusiasm for, and enjoyment of, learning.

We promote positive relationships where children interact confidently with staff and peers, and where their opinions are valued.

We are a school where parents are welcomed and invited to actively assist in our programme of work, be it within the school or on trips.

We aim to interact and use, as much as possible, the wider community for resources and input into the curriculum to create breadth and balance for individual pupil needs. Conversely, the school will offer, as much as is possible, the opportunity to benefit the community through activities such as charitable/village events and adult learning.


The curriculum of our school is made up of all the activities of the school: Academic, sporting, social and cultural. Under the provision of the 1988 Education Reform Act, Parliament has laid down the basic curriculum that must be taught in schools. This is called the National Curriculum. There are ten subjects in the National Curriculum in England. The main aspects of study set out the range of knowledge, skills and understanding that pupils should be taught during their time at school. Attainment targets contain statements of attainment or end of key stage statements against which pupils are assessed.

The National Curriculum for Primary Schools includes the following subjects:




Design Technology





Physical Education
