As part of the Dartmoor MAT, our vision is to provide the highest possible quality of education for all local children, in order to ensure pupils from all backgrounds are able to succeed. To achieve this, the Dartmoor MAT is committed to have regard to the co-operative principles and values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, co-operative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility, and caring for others.

Our school values also promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. To read more about British Values, please click here.

We hope you will find all the information you need about our school on our website, in our Prospectus which you can find under the ‘Info’ tab, and by reading our most recent Ofsted Report (February 2016), but we warmly welcome visitors to the school, as the best way to really appreciate our wonderful setting and happy and thriving community of learners is to visit. We look forward to meeting you!
