Widecombe-in-the-Moor Primary School
"Every Day is Open Day"
Welcome to our school website. We are a small friendly school in the village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor. Our location means we benefit from being in the heart of the stunning Dartmoor National Park. We have very strong ties and are active members in our village community. Our size, between 60-70 pupils in a total of three classes, helps us to create a community in which pupils across the years know and support each other.
A Morning Walk Over The Moors
Parents, friends, dogs, babies and Batman(!) joined us for a brisk walk over the beautiful setting in which we are located.
Widecombe Cycling Club (WCC)
Ceri got the Widecombe Cycle Club (WCC) underway today with timed laps, a fun obstacle course and, of course, places on the straw bale podium! The riders looked as though they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. This is all good preparation for the upcoming Stover competition.
Widecombe Fair 2016
Another succesful Widecombe Fair for our school.
During the morning downpours, our Maypolers performed their wonderful dances accompanied by Tom and Hope on the fiddle and guitar.
Every member of the school had a piece of artwork exhibited in the produce tent. The judges had a challenge choosing which ones to award rosettes to.
The 8 and under Junior Uncle Tom Cobley race was won by Alfie, and the 9 and over was won by Jamie- Well Done boys!
Our Friends opened a Pop Up Tea Room serving tasty cream teas and cakes.
After school, on the last day of term, a small army of volunteers equipped with shovels, spades, forks and a mini-digger started to landscape the Webburn play area. Thank you to everyone that provided support, materials and refreshments. Check back reguarly to see how the space is developing.
Thank you for coming to our Sports Day. Well done to everyone who took part and congratulations to the Red Team.
Our vision; is for our school to be a stimulating, safe and respectful learning environment, where all members of our community work in partnership to achieve the best for every child. We provide learning experiences that motivate children to believe they can succeed in all that they do, creating a culture where we enjoy challenges in our learning knowing that we can always aim higher.
