School Allotments

Children have applied to have an allotment plot.  They will be provided with equipment and seedlings to maintain these and be able to grow fruit, vegetables and flowers.

Well done to all the children for their part in The Stick Man.  Thank you to the PTA and everyone who helped and supported these events - £528 was raised. 

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.
