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


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.

Music in the wet

Mardon braved the showers and hail to discover things outside that could be used to make instruments.  We explored making sounds that were loud and quiet.  Who knew a muddy puddle could double up as an instrument? 


Bailey the Barn Owl visited our year 5 and 6 classes today!  Thank you to FOMs and the Barn Owl Trust.


We have been learning actions to the story Solomon Crocodile to help us remember the story.  We are roaring like the angry hippo!
