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.’
Arts Week has been a great success and it was wonderful to see so many parents come and celebrate the children's work at our Exhibition in the Hall on Friday. There was such a range of media and it was wonderful seeing the pride our children showed when sharing their work.
Well done also to Alice, Amelie, Ruby, Saffi and Rosie who brilliantly organised a raffle, candy floss and pop-corn event to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Steve Manning's Storytelling workshops have also gone down very well and will inspire the children's writing next week; t was great to see lots of you at his assembly on Thursday.
A reminder that next Thursday is World Book Day where children are invited to come to school dressed as a favourite book character. We will also be holding a 'Where's Wally' competition.
Have a lovely weekend,
Singing in the Community
4 of our children performed with groups from other schools in the local community.
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.
