Our Ethos, Aims and Values

Widecombe-in-the-Moor is a welcoming and happy school with an ethos of aspiration and achievement. 

We encourage our pupils to achieve their full potential with success being recognised and celebrated in all its forms. As a school we aim to:

  • Ensure that learning is enjoyable, stimulating and fun.

  • Enable all children to be articulate, literate, numerate and creative through an enjoyable and stimulating curriculum.

  • Encourage an effective partnership between our excellent teaching staff, parents and the wider community to build the children' sense of connection to the world around them

  • Nurture children to become individuals who are able to live a safe, healthy and fulfilling life

  • Offer a warm, welcoming environment and learning community where every individual understands their roles and responsibilities and respects the views and opinions of others

As education moves forward those involved in it are constantly faced with exciting new challenges and demands, Central to all of them, however, must be the child - your child. Parents at Widecombe in the Moor are invited to form a partnership with the school to support and guide their child’s learning process.

To achieve this, good communication between home and school is essential and actively encouraged. Parents are encouraged to help in school through a wide range of activities including the Friends of Widecombe Association, who meet regularly and carry out many fund raising activities to provide necessary extras for the school. Parents are also represented on the Board of Governors

Our school is always evolving and we are constantly looking at ways we can improve the provision for the children. We have an excellent reputation and are very proud of our achievements. We trust this is apparent as you look at our website, when you visit our school, or when you talk to our children and parents.
