About the School

This is a large school of approximately 300 children with a 52 placement Nursery Unit employing over 30 members of staff.

It was opened in 1979. The school celebrated its 21st birthday in September 2000.We will be 25 years old this coming September!

We aim to offer a broad and balanced curriculum ensuring that the 'Every Child Matters' philosophy is fully implemented.

Where are we?

We are situated close to the countryside on the outskirts of the small market town of Newton Abbot, just off the Ashburton Road on the edge of Dartmoor in South Devon.

International language Day

The school held an International Language Day on Friday 29 June this year. The day was packed with activities from different countries around the world, including African mask making, Aboriginal art, tasting bread from different countries and various games, songs and dances from around Europe. Other events included the Frog and Rosbeef Theatre Company's mad waiter who helped serve the children their internationally-themed lunch and held conversation with them in French. To end the day, visitors from the Bumala Trust in Kenya came to thank the children for their efforts in raising money to help sponsor Samuel, a Kenyan orphan.

Overall, the day was a great success and a marvelous warm up for European Day of Languages on 26 September this year. If any of you out there would like to run, or help out with an activity based around a European Language other than French, German and Spanish, or maybe you could just lend a hand on the day, please contact Mr Hankin at school. Thank you again for your continued support.

Now let’s find out what the children thought!

Fun day with different cultures!

On Friday 29th June our school spent the day learning about different cultures and the languages they speak.

Each class was given a country and their children dressed in their flag’s colours. To do this each child had to bring in a pound. From this we raised £250 which went to Samuel, the Kenyan orphan we sponsor through the Bumala Trust.

During the day we visited all the classes and did an activity in each one to do with languages, including food tasting, mask making and learning a song in french which we sang in assembly. We did activities in Spanish, German, French and Italian and even learnt some sign language.

We asked some of our classmates what they thought of international day and they all came up with the same response; they loved it!

The organisers, Mr Hankin and Miss Copeland, thought it was a great success and hope we can do it again soon as everyone enjoyed it!
