Everything we do is inspired by our enduring mission; to become lifelong learners whose minds are open to a world of possibilities.

Welcome to our school

At Dartington C of E Primary and Nursery School we are proud to be a church school, combining our ethos of inclusion with exciting and challenging learning, high expectations and quality outcomes for all children.

Our pupils develop as confident, thoughtful learners who are happy, love learning and are proud of their progress.

Our new building was completed in Easter 2018 with classrooms that provide places for 420 pupils. Each of our classrooms open directly into its own landscaped garden, promoting the idea of an outdoor classroom and learning through play.

School Notice

To All Parents and Carers

Come and meet Claire, Governors and Lynn Atkinson the head of our new School Partners on Friday 21st June at 2.15 pm in the School Hall for a question and answer session.

A lot has been happening in school over the past few weeks and months and this is an opportunity to ask the team about these changes and the vision for the future of Dartington CE Primary School.

If you are not able to come to school this time, we will also be arranging another meeting for an evening slot.

Joanne Tisdall (Chair of Governors)

There is outstanding care and support for pupils, who consequently feel very safe. Several parents told inspectors that this is the greatest strength of the school.
