We know the experiences that children are exposed to as they grow, shape them as people. Positioned between two Moors in the heart of Devon and as the heart of our community, our school offers a wealth of rich and purposeful experiences which help the children develop.

From the progressive, carefully considered curriculum, where the children learn the key skills within a context which is meaningful to them, to the time spent learning within our community and the places around us, the children enjoy the richness of experiences that living in Devon can offer them.

Our learning values are woven carefully into our curriculum and everyday practise. By consistently considering these values teachers are able to help children develop the interpersonal skills, resilience, creativity, independence and the ability to become critical thinkers. These values help them build a strong foundation for life and give them skills to navigate the challenges in their next stage of education. We recognise every child as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values. We constantly provide enhancement opportunities to engage learning and believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge.

Community involvement is an essential part of our curriculum as we celebrate local traditions, learning new skills to enable the children to take an active role in events throughout the year. Children leave our school with a sense of belonging to a strong community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
