Through teamwork and perseverance, we encourage each other to be the best that we can be. Our ambition is to provide creative opportunities to develop skills in leadership and entrepreneurship, for pupils to reflect on how far they have come and how to be risk takers. They will aspire to be confident communicators, respectful of each other and considerate members of our school family and beyond.

As a school we embrace opportunities to ensure our community will continue to grow and thrive so that we can empower children to have the wings to fly and become tomorrow’s successful citizens.

Hard copies of any information on our website can be requested free of charge from the school office.

Harbour Defence Scheme Opening Performance

Posted on

The children from the Choir were invited to sing at the official opening of the new harbour wall, as part of the latest work completed in the Harbour Defence Scheme.

The event took place on the Village Green, where the children sang a special sea related song; ‘Drop in the Ocean’ and completed many fun activities provided by the Environment Agency. We also watched the plaque unveiling, and one pupil helped cut the ribbon for the official opening!

The children’s performance was filmed for ITV Westcountry News, with some children taking part in an interview about local flooding which may be broadcast at the weekend- all very exciting! The children were also able to find out more about how tides work, have a look inside an Environment Agency van and use a remote controlled grass mower.
