Welcome To

Moretonhampstead Primary School

Our school is a vibrant place of learning’ and 'pupils' progress is strong'- OfSTED April 2017

Our ‘strong emphasis on pupils’ personal development promotes their positive behaviour, with respect and courtesy as the norm’.

We are delighted that our recent OfSTED letter supports our view that we are a 'good' school.  We are pleased that the letter recognises the journey we have been on to secure improvement for our children and this will continue as we look to further strengthen our curriculum and the opportunties we provide.  You can find the full OfSTED letter on the link below.

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.’ 

Do come and visit us!

With best wishes,

William Bentall


Delayed Opening

School will now not open until 10:30am on Tuesday 20th March due to the warnings about ice in morning.

School Closure

Due to the current adverse weather conditions we have decided to close Moretonhampstead Primary School tomorrow (Monday 19th March). We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause but the rural location of many of our children and staff means they are unable to safely travel.

We will keep you updated regarding the arrangements for Tuesday in due course. Please check the school website/Facebook for updates.

Coop Group

Some of Mardon class have started making a chicken coop ready for some new arrivals at school.  Today, (with the help of Annkatrin) they made the rear door to the coop to let the chickens in and out.  The children were supervised in using an electric screwdriver, hammers and saws and had great fun learning how to measure, cut and build.
