Our partnerships within the Local Community are essential to the smooth running of the school and to enhancing the children’s experiences and opportunities.
We have an excellent relationship with our Parish Church and regularly take the children to visit the church. We hold our Harvest Celebration and Nativity there and join in with their annual Christmas Tree Festival. We have links too, with the Parish Council and work closely with them on matters that affect our local environment and our neighbours in the Village.
We have links with several local businesses and charities and the children learn about supporting their community as well as receiving support from people outside of the school. We regularly help raise money for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust and the Cat’s Protection League as our local charities, and we have visits from them to do workshops and information sessions about their work.
Annually we have an Emergency Services Day and have visits from the Fire Service, Devon and Cornwall Police and the Ambulance Service. Learning how these and other professionals fit into our community is important for the development of our future citizens.
We value our relationships with all members of the community around us and they provide an important resource to enhance the children’s learning.
