Welcome to our new website! (I’m writing this in January 2016)
Our school’s blog got bigger and bigger and it started to incorporate much of the information that was either on the website already or should have been. We now have them together, in one place, and we’re able to share all our exciting work with those who want to read it easily and regularly; have a look at the Learning and Blog pages for our recent news!
We are a village Church of England (VC) Primary School, serving the villages of Georgeham and Croyde, in North Devon, UK. We have just over 100 children who are taught in four classes. We provide a friendly, caring environment and insist on high standards of behaviour, which in turn helps to maintain high standards of work. Children are encouraged with values of kindness and friendship and they take pride in their work, telling us that they enjoy having a growth mindset. We seek to include the latest educational innovations at school as well as traditions like Broom Dancing and Maypole Dancing, which are performed regularly each summer.
Our main building was built in 1868 and there are two annex classrooms with a third housing our playgroup, ‘Stepping Stones’. Developments over the years have seen a new kitchen and two class rooms completely rebuilt, the school field landscaped and we also moved into the School (Master’s) House in 2010 which now provides us with further teaching and meeting spaces.
Outside, at the rear of the school, we have many interesting zones for the children. This includes a MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) with a 25m climbing traverse wall, a large field surrounded by a wooden trim trail, a large Gazebo (sometimes called the ‘Outside Learning Area’ or ‘Bandstand’), a wooded nature area and a volleyball court. The School House has also now provided us with a peaceful and quiet garden for the children to relax in – eating lunch outside in the summer is delightful!
We hope you enjoy exploring our school website!
