Horrabridge Primary & Nursery School
Horrabridge Primary & Nursery School is an ‘Outstanding’ school (Ofsted November 2011). It is situated within the village of Horrabridge, between Yelverton and Tavistock, on the western edge of Dartmoor.
Ours is a lovely, friendly school with fabulous facilities and a committed and caring staff. Our school benefits from eight modern, spacious classrooms1 x Nursery, 1 x Foundation, 1 x Year 1, 1 x Year 2, 1 x Year 3, 1 x Year 4, 1 x Year 5 & 1 x Year 6. We also have a networked ICT suite with 30 computers (in addition to 48 portable laptops and i pads), Cookery area, separate libraries for EYs/KS1 and KS2 , large hall and a Breakfast Club/ After School Club building. Our spacious outdoor environment includes large playground areas and playing equipment, a large, level playing field and a covered outdoor learning area.
We strive to ensure that all our children have a happy, broad education that encourages them to enjoy and achieve. Our curriculum centres on learning within a thematic curriculum through which core Numeracy and Literacy skills are learned and applied. We aim to prepare our children as the global citizens of the future, where excellent ICT skills, the ability to speak a modern foreign language and the need to consider the sustainability of our environment will all be valued.
We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school that caters very effectively for all children’s needs. We value the opportunity to provide learning that extends beyond the classroom and to this end organise a variety of educational visits/visitors (including a sailing week for our year 5 children and a residential week for our year six children). We also link closely with the local community and provide a broad range of extracurricular clubs, through which we encourage maximum participation, as well as the opportunity to develop skills with which to represent the school in a variety of competitions and performances.
We would always welcome the opportunity to conduct a tour of the school with prospective parents and carers and discuss in greater detail the opportunities that we provide.
