Moretonhampstead Primary School
Welcome to our school where we have an amazing building and outdoor space, incredible Dartmoor views and, best of all, fantastic children and staff! We are a school where the children come first and are all treated as individuals. Our school mission statement says: ‘In a trusting, caring and motivating environment, our children will be happy, confident learners who are inspired to do their very best.’
Our Year 5/6 football team performed brilliantly in the Doel Cup on Monday against some very good schools and our resilience and team work really shone through. We were unable to make it through to the quarter finals but we played in several extremely close matches and had, possibly, the goal of the tournament from Hugo with a superb half-volley from the half-way line. Well done everyone!
We ordered 160 red noses to support Red Nose Day. We thought this would be ample but, unfortunately, we have no more left! Phoebe got a 'silver' one! We are holding a 'wear red' day on Friday 24th March- this could be one item of red or an entire outfit! £1 donations please.
We are proud of Annie and her team who organised a fundraiser for the Alzheimer's society this afternoon- the homemade chocolate was divine and they raised £72!
It is our 'Big Spring Clean' tomorrow (Wednesday 22nd)- you are invited to come in during the day and help us launch our outdoor project. There is more information in the newsletter.
With best wishes,
We want the important step of your child starting school to be a smooth as possible. It is a big step, both for your child and for you!
Admission to any school is undertaken through the Local Authority. There are particular criteria which enable the Authority to prioritise requests for admissions if this is necessary.
Children may start school in the autumn term (September) after their fourth birthday.
It is important to us that there is a smooth transition to school for all children and that your children settle into our school quickly and happily. A rigorous and well planned induction programme is in place to enable this to happen, with the flexibility to respond to the needs of individual children as appropriate.
