School House (Class One & Office)

There are records of schools in Thorverton over at least three hundred and fifty years. The present school was erected on Glebe land in 1842 and after 1944 became a Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School under the Devon Local Education Authority ( L.E.A.).

Today there are around 75 children on roll in three classes. The teaching staff is augmented by teachers on short-term contracts when pupil numbers increase. There is a teaching assistant in each class. Parents and local people give practical support in many ways in school including reading support, running the library, sewing, cooking, gardening, games and visits.

Many of the parents and grandparents were themselves pupils here, and there is a good tradition of the school being used by the whole community .

The School has strong links with the Village Playgroup, which most children attend before starting school.

When they leave at the end of Year 6, the children normally transfer to Queen Elizabeth’s Community College, Crediton, to which the L.E.A. provide daily transport.

Our vision for Thorverton School:

Our learners will develop the skills to be proactive and responsible
citizens in a changing world.



Parents are welcome in the school at any time, though it may be better to arrange an appointment if you wish to discuss confidential or detailed matters. There are opportunities to meet your child's teacher at regular consultation evenings, and written reports are sent home each year. Matters of school policy can also be raised with the Governors at the Annual Parents' Meeting. A good deal of informal talk takes place when parents are collecting their children after school each day, and Newsletters are sent out regularly to keep everybody up to date with what is happening. We keep a list of telephone numbers of parents or carers who could be contacted during the daytime in case of illness or minor emergencies.
