Photographs of the School
and our Grounds

School Garden
These photos are of the new school garden that we are creating with Mr Sentance.
We've already been using some of the produce in our school kitchens.

School Buildings Development

Did you know that in January 2008 the number of children at our school reached 145.
This is a record for our school and with the village continuing to grow we are presented
with a range of challenges for the future.

The central problem is simple - we don't have enough space in school for all the children we have.
We would love to form a 6th Class in the near future but we have nowhere to base it.

Our governors have outlined some key areas for development and we are working to make them happen:

  • a new classroom
  • a new purpose built area for playgroup
  • a new, and bigger, school hall
  • a covered outdoor area for younger children to work in
  • changing rooms for sport
  • bigger school kitchens
  • new staffroom and staff toilets
  • more storage space
  • more energy efficient ways of servicing the school

    This is a big list but we are all committed to developing our school and we believe that
    if we work together and are determined then all of the above will prove possible.
If anyone has any comments or ideas please get in touch.

March 2006

With Spring just around the corner our playground development has continued and a willow dome has appeared on the school grounds.

Under the direction of our art teacher, Bryan Sentance, children from Class 5 spent a day digging and
Now all we need is a bit of growing and we'll have
a wonderful outdoor classroom.

This is the first stage of an outdoor sculpture project which we've got planned for Summer 2006 so watch this space.

Playground Opening - November 1st 2005
On Tuesday 1st of November we were delighted to welcome Teresa Cheel (one of our parents) who came in to school on behalf of the Natwest Supergrounds Scheme.
Teresa's hard work for the school has enabled us to receive grants of over £5000. We are all very grateful to her and Natwest Bank because the wonderful work which has teaken place to improve our playgrounds would not have happened without this support.

In addition to the official opening we also invited parents in to school for an open morning and it was great that so many took the opportunity to come in and see what the children are doing in school.

Over 50 parents joined us for lunch and as always our kitchen staff did an excellent job, putting on an extremelly well received buffet.

The children were delighted that we decided to hold a non-uniform day and they had a great time taking part in inter-house games on the playground.
Everyone had an excellent time.

The children are pictured at the opening ceremony which has recently been featured in The North Devon Journal.

In November 2003 the school was able to open a new extension and this means that we are now very lucky to have plenty of space and very good accommodation.
Since then we have been working very hard to raise money so that we can develop our school grounds.
Our PTA has worked very hard for us and we have also been lucky enough to receive a grant of nearly £5000 from NATWEST Bank.
A lot of this work took place during Summer 2005.

We Have been working to :

  • resurface the playground
  • renovate the shed
  • create an outdoor area for Classes 1 and 2 to work in
  • provide quiet areas for us to sit in
  • build a stage
  • start constructing a sculpture garden
We think that we have made an excellent start and we are looking forward to making our school grounds even better in the future.
