Moretonhampstead Primary School
Welcome to our school where we have an amazing building and outdoor space, incredible Dartmoor views and, best of all, fantastic staff and children!
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.’ Working together as a team, the staff, governors, children and parents ensure that we lay the foundations needed for effective life long learning and responsible citizenship. We have welcomed many new staff to the family this term. Mr Poulsom joins us in year 6, Mrs Burns in year 5 and Mrs Scholz in year 3/4. We also welcome new teaching assistants, Mrs Elliott and Mrs Gofton and our new administrator is Mr Saunders. It is wonderful to have them on board as we take the school forward with a fresh start.
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.
