Welcome to Lynton Primary School

Lynton School is to be found in the old village of Lynton, situated on the very attractive coastline of North Devon and within the Exmoor National Park. Lynton with Lynmouth has a population of approx. 2,000 with the nearest towns of Ilfracombe, Barnstaple and Minehead being 20 miles away.

The history of the school building goes back to 1844. Various additions have been built over the years, the most extensive being the modernisation of 1975. Further major building works took place during the Spring/Summer Term of 2002 with the addition of a new classroom, reception area and offices at ground level and internal alterations to incorporate a multi-purpose hall, providing the very best accommodation for our pupils.


At Lynton C.E. Primary School we endeavour to provide a happy, caring environment within which all children enjoy learning and feel confident that their contribution is valued. We hope to provide a wide range of balanced learning opportunities for all and encourage individuals to maximise their potential. We actively promote self-confidence and encourage independence and responsibility. It is said, "that nothing succeeds like success", and we strive to give every child the experience of success and a sense of satisfaction throughout their educational experience at Lynton.

As a Church of England School, we are also interested in the spiritual and moral development of our pupils. We hope to help them realise that tolerance and respect for others is vital if they are to successfully fulfil their role within the school community, village community and wider world community.

We believe that children can only achieve their best if there is close co-operation between home and school. Parents/carers are encouraged to share in their child's education and we endeavour to help parents/carers understand the aims and objectives of the school and how these are supported in the educational programme followed by the children at home.


The Governors of our school accept the general aims set out in the Devon Curriculum Statement.

The core subjects of Mathematics, Science and English play a central role in the curriculum. Each class has a daily literacy and numeracy lesson. In addition the children undertake work in Science, Information Technology, Art, Design Technology, History, Geography, Music, Physical Education, Religious Education and Personal, Social and Health Education. Wherever possible cross-curricular links within the curriculum are developed.

We endeavour to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, relevant to the children’s needs. Weekly and termly planning is undertaken for all subjects within the framework provided by the National Curriculum. Care is taken to ensure that work is matched to the abilities of individual children.


During the school year we usually try to provide KS2 children with a residential visit, joining with Parracombe School for the venture.

Additionally classes may have a day outing at other times of the year to places of educational interest, some in the local area and some further afield. At the time of your child’s admission to the school we ask you to complete a form giving permission for them to take part in local visits.

In order to fund these activities, should there be any costs to meet, and if they take place during school time, we may ask you for a voluntary contribution. We must point out that it may not be possible for the visit to take place if there are insufficient contributions.
