Welcome to Chudleigh C of E Primary School!
Our main aim is to create a happy and caring school environment in which children can acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to help them to become happy any successful in adult life.
We are very proud of our school building which opened on November 25th 1991 at a capital cost of £1.6 million. It is undoubtedly a very fine school building and we have tried to ensure that the facilities and resources available to the children are equally impressive. The school occupies a very pleasant and open site with a southerly aspect overlooking open countryside and new housing developments. It is adjacent to the town play park where school and community can share and enjoy a large play area and this is, in turn, adjacent to the Parish Church with which we have strong connections. Chudleigh School was the first Community County Primary School in Devon and money raised locally has provided additional facilities which include a magnificent community hall together with changing rooms and showers and a new community swimming pool, which opened in the Summer of 1997. The school building includes 16 classrooms, library, large shared practical areas, a music room, kiln, administrative offices, extensive storage facilities, large playgrounds, a sports field, and a community room which is used by Chudleigh Pre-school and other organisations. There is a canteen which prepares hot school lunches daily. The school grounds are landscaped and planted with a wide variety of trees and shrubs and we are currently constructing an environmental area to which all pupils will have access.
In this Church School we hope that its Christian foundation will be evident in a variety of ways.
We hope that the teaching and love of Jesus Christ will shape our values and relationships and provide a basis for the whole life of school.
We hope that as all the children of this school grow physically and mentally they will also grow socially and spiritually, so gaining a real respect for themselves, for each other and indeed for the exciting world – God’s world – in which we live.
Our main aim is to create a happy and caring school environment in which children can acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to help

The school organisation reflects the need to accommodate differing numbers
of children in each year group within a flexible structure which allows each
child to progress at his/her appropriate rate while utilising the talents and
abilities of all teaching staff. Some classes may contain more than one age
group of children. Detailed whole-school planning ensures that each child
has full access to the curriculum, fully differentiated and structured to
ensure progression and continuity, irrespective of which class he/she may
be placed in.
Within the class, children will be appropriately grouped for different subjects
and a variety of teaching approaches used to ensure that each child realises
his/her full potential. These approaches will include whole class, group, or
individual teaching. For certain subjects e.g. mathematics, children may be
grouped across classes within each team. Each term parents will be sent a
Year Group newsletter outlining the work to be covered, educational visits
planned and suggestions for parental support and extension at home.
Our school offers a creative, broad, and balanced curriculum which reflects
the requirements of the National Curriculum as well as developing the wider
curriculum e.g, current affairs, cultural visits/visitors, extra curricular
activities, residential visits. In addition, we very much value the interests,
experiences and opinions of our children and try to respond to and develop
these whenever appropriate and practical to do so. We have a Curriculum
policy and Teaching for Learning policy both of which outline our main aims
for the curriculum. These have been approved by the School Governors and
are available on request from the School Office.
