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.
World Book Day
Children are invited to dress up as a character from a book on Thursday 7th March for World Book Day
Early Close Today
We have just heard from South Dartmoor Community College that Devon transport are sending the Ilsington, Widecombe and Moretonhampstead buses home early today due to the forecast of inclement weather. As a precautionary measure based on the weather forecast we will be closing school early today and children should be picked by 1pm (we will be serving lunch early). Your child will remain safe in school with a member of staff until you arrive.
School will be open as usual tomorrow (Thursday). Please drive carefully. We will be keeping a close eye on the weather forecast for tomorrow afternoon.
Due to unsafe driving conditions caused by snow school will be closed today, Wednesday 30th January.
i have taken the decision to close school today due to the hazardous driving conditions I faced this morning when trying to get in and the expected forecast of more heavy snow this morning. Please check the school website and Facebook for further information. Thanks, Des.
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.
