About the School
We are a Voluntary Controlled primary school in Devon Local Authority with a nursery school, set in a lovely new building with beautiful grounds on the edge of Dartington.
As a church school we draw on Christian values such as friendship, respect, inclusiveness and tolerance, which underpin everything we do.
A strength of our community is the children’s ability to collaborate, learning with and from each other, as well as the close partnership we enjoy with our parents and carers which is an important aspect of our school.
We build resilience in our learners so that they tackle the highest challenges and can talk with pride about their outcomes.
Our Nursery, where pre-school children can play and learn alongside our Reception pupils within a specifically created Foundation Stage Unit, is run by our specialist team of Early Years practitioners. Planned connections and shared opportunities ensure transitions are smooth so that children continue to make strides in their learning year on year as they progress through the school.
Every member of our school team, including staff and governors, have worked tirelessly towards raising standards in reading, writing and mathematics, whilst holding on to our core values of creativity, challenge, empathy and compassion and reflection. The impact of this shines out in children’s learning attitudes, the quality and volume of work produced and progress made in every year.
