Okeford Fitzpaine Church of England Voluntary Aided (CE VA) Primary School was founded in 1873.Today we are a small, friendly school, actively involved with the close-knit community. We seek to educate children by responding quickly to the changing needs of each developing child.
Everyone who comes to this school is valued whether they be an adult or child. The school promotes the growing maturity, positive attitudes and behaviour of pupils, and adults at the school provide good role models for them.
Clubs and Activities
We have the following activities available to the children outside normal school hours.
- Maths Games
- Tag Rugby
These are dependent upon the child's age and the season of the year, and take place either at lunchtime, before school or after the school day
The Governors play a wide-ranging role within the life of the School. They are, for example, responsible for the appointment of teaching staff.
Within the Governing Body there are smaller 'working committees' which make decisions about specific topics such as salaries, school development plans and finance, thus ensuring that all teachers support the principles embodied in a Church of England School.
Governors also have overall responsibility for the curriculum, and require the Headteacher to consult and inform them fully at regular meetings on all aspects concerning the review and development of the curriculum.
