Shute Community Primary School is a small village primary school. It has long enjoyed an excellent reputation within the local community. The school can accommodate 70 children between the ages of 4-11 years.

Children of different ages regularly work together and this has a positive impact on their learning. Our aim is to organise classes with sufficient flexibility to provide the best education for each child so that they receive teaching appropriate to their age, ability and maturity. A classroom assistant works in each class.

We offer playgroup facilities in our school hall and work closely with both the playgroup and secondary schools to ensure a smooth transition when each child enters our school and when they progresses to secondary education. Our local secondary schools are: Axe Valley Community College, Colyton Grammar and The Woodroffe School.

The Aims of Shute School are as follows:

  • To provide a secure, safe and positive environment where all children are valued as individuals, can develop a positive self-image, which helps them to make personal and academic progress.
  • To value all children equally and to know their every strength and weakness and
    to have high expectations of each and every child; to identify their individual talent and find the key to unlock it.
  • To strive continually to raise the knowledge, skills and understanding of all, through effective teaching and learning, and through a broad and balanced curriculum.
  • To provide a stimulating and challenging learning environment which encourages positive attitudes to learning, encourages creative thinking, problems solving and risk taking.
  • To establish the importance of positive, active citizenship leading to high standards of behaviour, good communication and co-operation skills, and a respect and appreciation of others.
  • To establish a clear strategy for improvement, set targets and monitor progress.
  • To provide clear leadership, which will take the school forward in a positive way.
  • To consolidate the importance of the school in the life of the local community and for the community to be actively involved in the activities and development of the school.

We expect to achieve these aims by providing a balanced and wide ranging curriculum, guided by the requirements of the National Curriculum. We also seek to achieve fulfilment by providing in abundance such experiences and activities to enable all the children to develop to the full during their primary education

Extra curricular activities are provided to enrich and extend the curriculum; These include sporting, musical and environmental clubs, along with events and trips, and community involvement.

Shute School has a committed team of Learning Support Assistants whose help is invaluable in enabling all pupils to have equal rights of access to the curriculum, thereby modifying content and approaches to learning as appropriate for each individual.

Children experience active learning, and work in a variety of groups as well as individually. There is a balance between class teaching, and more practical work.

Within and across the curriculum areas, pupils have the opportunity to use a variety of media. They are encouraged to frame questions and solve problems, to create, communicate, and evaluate.

The Axe Valley Academic council has been awarded its assessment accreditation. Shute School’s policy of assessment and reporting actively involves the teacher, child and parent in a target setting, review and reporting cycle. Continuity throughout the primary phase is extended to Key Stage 3 through “Transition Projects” agreed by literacy and numeracy co-ordinators from primary and secondary schools within the Academic Council.

Shute School has a fully comprehensive range of curriculum policies which are always available for inspection.

Shute School is very much part of the local community. The values and attitudes of a supportive, caring environment are fundamental to the ethos of our school.
