North Tawton Community Primary School

North Tawton Community Primary School occupies the former site and buildings of North Tawton Secondary Modern School, built in 1928. The present Primary School moved into this site from the original site in Exeter Street , in 1962, prior to the merger of Okehampton Grammar School and Secondary Modern School to form Okehampton Comprehensive School.

There are currently six class bases, including two in a separate double-mobile unit. North Tawton Primary School presently enjoys a range of facilities which compare favourably with most modern Primary Schools in the County of Devon.


As a school we understand that starting school can be an extremely emotional time for both the parent and the child. We have procedures in place to ease the transition and to support the partnership of learning.

Each July there is an Open Morning. This enables parents and their children to view the school, ask questions and experience the friendly, caring atmosphere in the Foundation Stage (Reception) classroom. This class also includes some Year 1 children, due to our planned admission number limiting the intake to 25 pupils (in 2007-8).


Much of a child’s success depends so much on the support that he/she receives at home. Please try to set aside some time with your child/children when you can share their book with them – discuss their piece of writing, help them with their spellings and times tables or just enjoy researching information about a particular topic. The most important aspect of any support which you can give involves quality time, which is, wherever possible, uninterrupted. If you care about their learning, they will care about it too!

Our Foundation Stage recognises and upholds the aims of the school and reflects the foundation stepping stones for early childhood and lifelong learning. Our curriculum follows the Early Learning Goals as stated by the Department for Education and Skills, but also celebrates the wider amenities of our school environment.


North Tawton Community Primary School is able to offer a wide range of Extra - Curricular Activities which take place either during the lunch hour or after school. The staff of the school, with the support of the parents, aim to realise the huge potential which the facilities can offer the local community.

Activities last year included Netball, Football, Sewing, Cross Country Running, Chess, Summer Sports, Gardening, Choir, Board Games, Construction and Art.
