Welcome to our school's website. Here you will find information about our school, staff and pupils.

Silverton School is set on the edge of the village of Silverton in about 2 acres of grounds, with views across the Exe Valley towards Dartmoor. The village is of Saxon origin and boasts many fine historic buildings, three churches, three pubs, shops and a thriving local village community.The village is within commuting distance of Exeter (7 miles) and Tiverton (7 miles). The M5 is a ten minute drive.

The school has been on its present site since 1975. A new classroom and classroom extension were completed in 2001. There are 5 classes catering for pupils from 4 - 11 years. The majority of pupils then transfer to the popular Clyst Vale Community College at Broadclyst.

The school has close links with St. Mary's CE Church through its church foundation and also maintains liaison with the local playgroup.

Apart from offering high standards in the core curriculum subjects, we believe that it is vitally important to offer pupils opportunities to extend the depth of work in other subject areas such as the arts. We have a very strong tradition in promoting speech and drama work and pupils also enter national poetry speaking assessments. We offer extra - curricular activities such as football, netball, gardening and singing.

The school includes pupil with special needs and to enhance this we also offer a movement group that focuses on specific co-ordination and communication skills. Every child also receives one-to-one conferences on a regular basis with their teacher, to discuss areas for development.



"This is a very effective school with many strengths."

"Standards in English, Mathematics and Science are very high by the age of eleven."


"The school provides a very rich and broad curriculum."


"Pupils achieve very well in art and design, geography, history and choral speaking."

Aims, Ethos & Values Of The School

Silverton is very much a community school. Most of our children come from the village or surrounding hamlets, and they are encouraged to think of the school as involved in local activities. The people of Silverton are actively involved and supportive of their school.

We are a Church of England school. The school was founded by the Church and there are continuing strong links. The life of the school is firmly rooted in Christian values. As a whole school, and joined by many parents, we have a service in church at least once a term. The local Rector leads a weekly act of collective worship. Members of other Christian denominations are also welcomed to take Collective Worship and share in our activities. Three of the school governors are nominated by the Parish Church .

Religious Education follows the Devon agreed syllabus. Anglican denominational RE can be provided on request. Parents are entitled to request that their child be excluded from Religious Education and Collective Worship. Pupils who are withdrawn will be supervised by a member of staff.

We believe that children work best when they feel valued and appreciated. We create an atmosphere which challenges and develops abilities . Our school creates a happy and secure environment.

We also believe very strongly that the education of our children is a partnership between parents and teachers . We therefore encourage parents to be involved, to join in lessons and to talk regularly with staff. Our Home School Agreement is a reflection of our mutual expectations and all parents are encouraged to sign. A copy is enclosed in the Appendix of this document.

The School aims to provide an approach to the curriculum which is flexible enough to match abilities, needs, interests and attainments across the age range. This includes developing lively and enquiring minds, enhancing numeracy and literacy, encouraging and stimulating interest in learning, with a range of experiences including physical activities, creative arts and first-hand encounters.

Children are expected to develop the ability to work on their own as well as with others, to develop their own talents, show initiative where appropriate, be able to read, write, speak well, enjoy books and other sources of information, and have a good understanding of mathematical and scientific concepts.

We aim to allow every child to develop to their full potential and to develop a sound moral base in a well ordered and caring environment.



“Behaviour is very good throughout the school …… pupils exhibit individual examples of excellent behaviour …… “

“ Pupils are courteous, friendly and their helpful manner gives a good impression of the school to visitors.” Ofsted Inspection Report 2002.

Rules are few but made for the benefit of all. We see discipline as a matter of mutual concern and the joint responsibility of children, parents and teachers. Basically, we expect children to do nothing which could cause harm or danger, physical or mental, to another child. We regard consideration for others, high standards of courtesy and good behaviour as essential.

The School's policy on Discipline is available in school. It stresses the involvement of parents at every stage should there be a problem in the child's meeting the demands in behaviour and courtesy expected of him or her.

Number of Exclusions to date - 0.
