The Area of Morchard Bishop

Pupils come from a designated area determined by the Local Education Authority, covering the villages of Morchard Bishop, Black Dog, Puddington Washford Pyne and Woolfardisworthy. There is a map of this area in the school office which shows the exact area concerned.

Pupils may be admitted from outside this area, but if there are more applications for admission than places on roll, applications will be considered in accordance with the school’s Admission Policy which is explained in the school prospectus.


For information on applying for your child to attend Morchard Bishop Primary School, please visit Devon County Council's Admissions & Transfers page.

All the villages in our area are situated in beautiful rolling Devon countryside, as the attached pictures show.

We consider ourselves very fortunate to live and work in these surroundings and our pupils certainly benefit from being able to use the local area as an extended classroom. We can go for nature walks in Morchard Woods or follow orienteering trails we have laid there. We can visit our local church just over the road from the school and find out all kinds of things about our local history. (The view from the church tower is pretty amazing too!). We have the longest row of thatched cottages in the country a short distance away from here. Add to all this a wide skyline with racing cloud patterns and dramatic sunsets – just perfect for studying weather or for inspiration for art work and you can see why we feel so fortunate.


On Monday 5th March 2007 our community policeman and special constable came in to talk to both Key stage 1 and 2 about his job and his work.

In Key Stage one he had many questions to answer and he also explained the uniform and accessories that he was wearing.

The children enjoyed the time with him and thought about ways of keeping safe etc when outside. They also had the chance to sit in a police car which they thoroughly enjoyed.

Here are some pictures below.

Operation Christmas Child

Every Christmas for the past 3 years, children from our school have supported this charity and this year is no exception!

The children make up Christmas Boxes for individual children from Eastern Europe and Third World countries and send them off in time for Christmas Day. Each box is carefully prepared with a particular child in mind – how old they are and whether a boy or a girl is very important when choosing the contents.

The gifts are packed into shoe boxes which are decorated to look exciting with Christmas paper and then sent off by the organisation “The Samaritan’s Purse”. This splendid team of people organise collection, transport to the receiving country, all legal paperwork and documentation, as well as the delivery of the boxes to the right children.

We all look forward to hearing how they have got on in the New Year.

December 2002 - A visit to Ridge House

On Thursday, Class 5 paid their annual visit to Ridge House home for the elderly and retired across the road from the school. Each year, the children share a little of their Christmas Celebrations with the residents, who entertain them with juice and chocolate bars afterwards! This year we enjoyed bible reading, communal carol singing, recorder playing and the Handbell team. A good time was had by all as you can see!
