Here we are at the end of our school year. Staff would like to thank all our pupils and their families for their continued support, positivity and kindness throughout the year. We hope you have a super summer holiday, ready to start the new school year on Wednesday 6th September.
Goodbye Year 6
Year 6 treated us to their performance of Mama Mia on the stage this week, ably supported by Year 5 singers and dancers. We were all joining in the Abba classics by the end. They also continued their performing talents in their leavers assembly. The whole school, along with parents and carers, enjoyed the show and they had a last day to remember.
Below are photos from of the class in Year R and Year 6.
We also said a fond farewell to some of our staff this week. Mrs White, Mrs Cooper, Mrs Watkins and Mrs West have all supported children in our school and preschool for many years and will be greatly missed. We also thank Sally Darken and Amy Foster for their hard work as Mealtime Assistants, it is no mean feat getting the whole school fed each day, and Zenna Jessop who has supported at Little Beacons. Miss Coleman also said her goodbyes as she moves back to Chagford to be a lead teacher there. We wish them all the very best of luck.
It was also with a heavy heart that we said goodbye to our wonderful principal, Mrs Marvin. The outpouring of love and gratitude speaks volumes in showing her how much we all value her as a person and leader. Mrs Marvin, we thank you from the whole school community.
Years R-6 enjoyed a sunny sports day last Wednesday. We were pleased to see so many come along to cheer the children and enjoy a shared lunch on the field. What a great day!
Autumn term menu

Choices for Years 1-6 are now live on School Gateway and the catering team request that you make your choices for the first week before 31st August please. New Year R pupils will have a paper list until they are enrolled on the system.
The PTA wish to thank all those who have helped, donated and supported the PTA. We are delighted to announce that this year we have raised nearly £8,000 !!! This money has gone towards paying for school trips, IT equipment, year 6 breakfast and party and teacher's wish list for additional resources.
Also a huge thank you to Christine Andrews, who has been a parent with us for 18 years. Her years of dedication to the PTA and selling the pre-loved uniform has helped so many families and raised so much for the school, thank you Christine.
