Moretonhampstead Primary School

Moretonhampstead Primary School has an amazing building, built in 2007, large areas of outdoor space, incredible Dartmoor views and, best of all, fantastic staff and children!  Our school mission statement says: ‘In a trusting, caring and motivating environment, our children will be happy, confident learners who are inspired to do their very best.’  Working together as a team, the staff, governors, children and parents ensure that the foundations are laid for effective life long learning and responsible citizenship.  In March 2013, Ofsted said the school is a good school with outstanding features and the “high quality care, support and guidance from all staff and an excellent range of learning activities also promote the pupils’ outstanding behaviour and relationships”.
