Witheridge Church of England Primary School
Welcome to Witheridge C of E Primary School. Our school is a thriving village school set in the beautiful North Devon countryside near Tiverton. We are a caring and happy school with a passion for children's learning and well-being. Our school currently has just under 100 pupils who are inspired by high quality teaching coupled with excellent sporting facilities and out of school clubs.
Our Philosophy and Ethos
Education is constantly evolving and moving forward and those involved in it are increasingly met with exciting new challenges and demands. Central to all of them, however, must be the child - your child. With this in mind, we passionately believe in the following:
A shared vision for The Taw Valley Federation
We are church schools, grounded in a belief in God who created and loves us. In this light we aim to inspire and enable all children to become independent, resilient, aspirational and joyful lifelong learners, within a caring Christian environment. We uphold a commitment to ensure that every child's spiritual, intellectual, creative, emotional and physical needs are met. The school community will encourage and enable parents to participate in and support their child's learning. As part of the rich and varied experiences we offer our children they will be given opportunities to engage with and contribute to the wider communities of the church, local area and world.
For the children this means:
Value your learning
Learn about your World
You CAN do it!
Respect and understand others
Our aim is that by working in partnership with parents and the community, Witheridge CE Primary School will be an enriching and stimulating learning environment, set within the context of Christian belief and practice.
Witheridge CE Primary School provides a friendly, caring environment in which parents are encouraged to play an active role, and is an integral part of the Village.
The School has 94 children aged from five to eleven, and is organised into four classes – a Reception class, a Key Stage One class, and two classes in Key Stage Two.
Many of the children have previously been at the on - site Witheridge Pre - School and have joined us as they approached their fifth birthdays, a transition made easier by the experience of the School they have already gained over their preceding time in Pre-School.
