Welcome to Clyst Honiton Primary School
Clyst Honiton School is a special place where children can flourish in the unique environment provided by a small village school.
At Clyst Honiton we are able to treat every child as an individual. All children are very well known and cared for by all the adults.
We set high targets and encourage every child to reach their full potential. Young children grow up in a family atmosphere learning and playing together. We are therefore delighted that these qualities were recognised in our last OfSTED Inspection along with many other strengths.
The high level of parental involvement encourages the children. There is an active Parents' Association which organises important fund raising events for the school.
Children from Clyst Honiton transfer to Clyst Vale Community College for their secondary education. This is a very popular secondary school which our children settle into quickly and happily.
Clyst Honiton provides a pleasant village setting only a few minutes away from Exeter with excellent road links.

We admit children into the Reception year twice a year in September and January.
Children whose birthdays fall between the 1st September and the end of February are
admitted into full time education in September. Children whose birthdays fall between
the 1st March and 31st August are admitted in January. We have arrangements for
children to attend on a part-time basis in the term before they start full time education.
It is possible, though unusual, to defer your child’s entry until later in the school year
but not beyond the beginning of the term after the child’s 5th birthday, nor beyond the
academic year for which admission is sought.
Children are admitted to other year groups in the school if there is a place available.
On first admission children will be placed in the Key Stage 1 class.
Consideration will be given to transferring each child to the Key Stage 2 class in
the September following his/her 7th birthday. Factors taken into account will
include social and educational progress, the wishes of parents and the balance
of numbers between the classes.
Children normally transfer to Clyst Vale Community College, Broadclyst, having
reached their 11th birthday by 31st August. Regular meetings are held with our
colleagues at Clyst Vale to ease the transfer arrangements for our pupils to their
Since September 1989 all children have been working in accordance with National
Curriculum guidelines. The children study the core curriculum subjects of English,
Mathematics, Science and ICT (Information Communication Technology) and also the
six foundation subjects; namely - History, Geography, Design Technology, Physical
Education, Art and Music. Religious Education is also a compulsory area of study.
Children in Class 2 have an introduction to French.
Children are taught by a variety of methods as deemed appropriate by the teachers.
Sometimes the whole class group is taught together, sometimes the children work in
age or ability groups, sometimes individual tuition is necessary. Copies of the Rolling
Programme of Topics covered may be seen in school.
All National Curriculum documents are available for reference to any parent who wishes
to see them.
We always try to have some after school clubs for the children. At the moment
we have a Games Club and a Recorder Club but clubs will vary from year to
year depending on staff availability.
