Meavy Church of England Primary School is a school located in the picturesque area of Dartmoor, Devon.
We have little over 100 children on roll, split into four classes based upon age. At present the classes are organised as follows.
Meavy enjoys a reputation for excellence in many fields such as: academic achievement, musical success and sporting prowess, but above all, we are known for our caring "family" atmosphere which enables our children to learn to face the world with confidence.
- Class PPL - Years F/1
- Class KW - Years 2/3
- Class HL/RA - Year 4
- Class DP - Years 5/6
- To provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum for all our
pupils which will develop fully the individual talents and potential of
- To provide, through the best possible standards of academic, physical,
spiritual, moral and cultural education within a Christian environment,
a firm and lasting foundation for each child in a modern society.
- To promote a high standard of discipline based on selfdiscipline.
- To promote supportive and cooperative
relationships between home,
school and the local community with staff, governors and parents
working together to achieve clear targets.
At Meavy we use a mixture of topic based and discrete subject teaching to
cover the requirements of the National Curriculum and to extend the children’s
understanding, learning and knowledge. Sometimes the children may be taught
as a whole class but at other times may work in small groups or individually.
We believe that there can be no substitute for first hand experience and
therefore frequently use our immediate surroundings, visits, visitors to the
school and artefacts in the classroom to enhance the children’s learning. The
Governors have adopted the Devon County Council’s Curriculum Statement
which, together with all the School’s policies, is available for reading in school.
A range of extracurricular
activities are provided by staff and parents on a
voluntary basis. These vary from year to year and from term to term but
recently have included:
- Cross Stitch
- Playground Games
- Year 6 Club
- Games Club
- Tag Rugby
Our reception teacher, Mrs PriceLewis,
offers to visit you at home before your
child actually starts school. Parents and children may find this helpful as it
gives them the chance to chat informally about individual concerns.
When your child starts school we usually begin with half days and extend these
when we feel your child is able to benefit from whole days.
