Thank you for your interest in Charleton Primary School. We hope the contents of this website will help you make our school the choice for your child. Our aim is to give you some information about the daily running of the school and the practices and principles we uphold. Records show that a school with about forty pupils was flourishing in the village in 1870. The present building was opened in 1890 as a result of an act of private munificence by the Earl and Countess of Compton. As a voluntary controlled school we are fortunate to have the Church’s support in many areas. They provide us with representatives on our Governing Body and help us to develop our Religious Education Curriculum and Acts of Worship. We believe our school provides a caring and secure environment where children, staff, parents and governors work happily together to create the opportunity for a quality education for the children of this community. Our aims, outlined below, centre round the needs of the whole child. They can only be experienced by seeing our philosophy at work. I would suggest that your next step, after browsing this website, is to arrange a visit with your child. I look forward to meeting you.

Yours faithfully

Ken Crabtree, Acting Headteacher




Our school aims to be:

  • stimulating
  • vibrant
  • secure
  • challenging
  • inspiring


The children are organised in a flexible class groupings, with an emphasis in each class on the abilities, needs, interests and aspirations of the children, alongside the requirements of the National Curriculum. Children learn at their own pace within the class; for most this will be with others of their own age group but for some this may be with children older or younger than themselves. The school curriculum is designed to provide a complete programme covering the full seven years the children are in school, with time for them to adjust to school life at five and prepare for the next stage of their education at eleven. The requirements of the National Literacy and Numeracy strategies are in operation throughout the school. For all subjects the National Curriculum provides a list of skills and concepts to be acquired by the children at different levels of their development. These levels do not necessarily correspond to school years but to levels of performance, dependent on maturity, intelligence and experience. Priority is given to the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and ICT which take at least half of curriculum time. Although we are a small school we are particularly well resourced for ICT with a networked computer suite. The six Foundation subjects of History, Geography, Art, Music, Technology and Physical Education have specific skills which are taught separately but many of the concepts and programmes of study are taught more effectively through specific topics which give depth and meaning to the children's work while stimulating their interest and imagination. We have a series of yearly programmes within which the children can acquire the required knowledge while learning at their own pace and level of maturity and through which teachers can 'revisit' skills and concepts in order to review, reinforce, revise and assess their pupils' knowledge without repeating subject content. Children have the opportunity to work on whole school projects and performances. French is an extra-curricular subject provided by the school for year 5 and 6 children.The emphasis is on developing a knowledge of foreign language to give the children confidence in using and speaking French in preparation for their formal start in year 7 at secondary school. The school offers a variety of clubs through the year during lunch times and after school. Clubs include ICT, sport, music, art, and "The 3.30 special" which is Christian based.


Tuition on a range of instruments is available through the 'Devon Youth Music'. Lessons are shared and the cost to parents is a percentage of the cost of lessons plus the hire of the instrument if necessary. Private lessons are also arranged on request - cost of lessons to be agreed. The majority of lessons take place in school but if lessons are given in another school parents must provide transport themselves


As part of their work within the curriculum children may be taken out of school from time to time. These visits may range from a formal visit to a place of interest to short visits within the local environment. Parents may be asked to make a voluntary contribution towards the cost of such visits when they are deemed to be part of the school curriculum. Voluntary residential visits may also be offered to the older children.
