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 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.’
We are delighted to have joined The Link Academy Trust from February 2020 and very much look forward to working in partnership with our new schools, new colleagues and new children. This website will close soon as a result of this transfer and we will bring you a new one shortly which will be easier to navigate and more useful for you.

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.
