Christmas Presentation

Well done to all the children for their part in The Stick Man. Thank you to parents for supporting this event.  

Operation Encompass

The school is part of this joint project with Devon and Cornwall police.  Operation Encompass is the early reporting on to schools that a child or young person has been exposed to domestic abuse.  This goes live on the 27th November. 


The school has received two kind donations from The Beaford Village Autumn show and the Angela Gallagher Memorial fund.  The £350 received will be used to purchase new gardening equipment.  

Children In Need

Thank you to everyone for supporting this.  A fantastic £268 has been raised.  The cake competition was won by William and Maya won the sweets in the jar.


Children in Hedgehogs enjoyed the multiskills at GTS.

Big Bang

Children in Owls enjoyed visiting GTS for The Big Bang where they took part in workshops to engage children in Science, Technology,  Engineering and Maths.

Torrington Food Bank

We are collecting donations of dried and tinned food for The Torrington Food Bank who provide a basic food parcel for people who need emergency help due to sickness, homelessness, benefit cuts or delays. Please bring into school next week.

Fire Safety

Children in Hedgehogs and Owls enjoyed their safety talk from the fire service.

Monsters and Mysteries

This term's learning theme is monsters and mysteries.  For pictures of the children's work please look at the picture gallery.

Home Learning 

Owls: Imagine the scene when Stickman finally arrives home.  Can you create another section of the story – try to follow a similar pattern to the original story.
