We may be one of the smallest schools in Devon, but we aim to be one of the best. We are a Church of England Controlled school and maintain many links with our local church, which is also our neighbour. We have access to the church at any time (services permitting) and use it for Harvest, Christingle service, Christmas play, Easter, the Leavers’ Service as well as at other times.
We have two classes with, at present, 15 full time children on roll. Our staffing compliment comprises a .6 teaching Head and 3 part time teaching staff. One Mealtime Assistant, a caretaker, part time classroom assistant and part time administrator.
We believe in fostering positive attitudes to learning. One way in which we effect this is in our merit system, which rewards: good behaviour, politeness, helpfulness and good effort, as well as high academic achievement. You can find out more about our school by going to the Prospectus page.
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum including extra – curricular activities. We participate in sporting events with other schools as well as visits to enhance our teaching and learning. Here are a few of the events or visits in which we participated over the academic year 2002 – 2003:
Easter hat competition, an Indian morning (geography and RE), Plymouth Argyle football coaching, basketball coaching, tag rugby tournament, Roadford reservoir (science), Widemouth Bay (geography), Burton art gallery (art and history), athletics competition with other local schools, fun sports day organised by the year sixes with a neighbouring school, a field trip to study a local river (geography), our own school sports day comprising both cooperative and competitive races, end of year trip to a local leisure park.
In addition, we believe in supporting charitable events wherever possible, for example:
Red Nose Day, Jeans for Genes, Operation Christmas Child, UNICEF Children in Iraq appeal.
Our extra – curricular activities vary from term to term and include: recorders, sport and art/craft.
We have a very supportive PTFA – their help and support is invaluable. Find out more about them on the PTFA page.
We would be delighted to hear from you should you wish your child to attend our friendly little school.
