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.’
Well, we didn't win 'Star for Christmas' but we are so proud of our choir. Mr Downton has received a letter from the BBC saying we were very close!
Please come and join us for our Christmas Fair on Friday 9th December.
More football success
On Tuesday 6th December, our team played two matches in the Small Schools League against Denbury and All Saints Marsh (Newton Abbot). In our first match, we were narrowly beaten 3-2 by Denbury in what was an extremely close game. It was our first defeat of the season, but we bounced back to defeat All Saints Marsh 7-0. The team performed excellently, showing determination and team spirit and also represented the school fantastically - well done everyone! The help and support from parents is also greatly appreciated.
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.
