The building is a new purpose built six-classroom school, opened in March 1995. This was necessitated following many years of increasing pupil numbers who totally outgrew the old building. The new school has facilities for teaching all aspects of the curriculum on site. The interior is well equipped with mostly new furniture and fittings and the school grounds are excellent for pursuing many aspects of outdoor education (sport, games, environmental, swimming etc.). The school has an on-site kitchen for providing meals every day and also has facilities for the consumption of packed lunches brought in by the children.To read about the history of the school click here.
Currently, the children are taught in five classes (two at Key Stage 1 and three at Key Stage 2.
Throughout the school, many of the year groups are split between two classes.
The main catchment area for the school is the village, but many pupils come from neigbouring farms and communities, particularly Zeal Monachorum.
For their secondary education, pupils generally attend Queen Elizabeth Community College (QECC) in Crediton. QECC offers education up to the age of 18 to approximately 2000 students drawn from the Primary Schools throughout the Crediton area.

The school curriculum should aim to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn and to achieve. The school curriculum also aims to promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. These aims are summarised as: - communication skills, numeracy, study skills, problem solving skills, personal and social skills and skills in I.C.T. In addition, the school strives for equality of opportunities, and promotes a positive approach to Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Citizenship, and particularly teaches children a multicultural approach to society. Where appropriate the school provides support for children with Special Educational Needs to match the requirements of individuals. In order to promote the maximum learning opportunities for pupils, each child has a home-school agreement which clearly states the expectations and obligations of the school, the parent and the pupil. It is encouraged that all parties to this agreement sign it as a token of their commitment.
