'Living life in all its fullness' (John 10:10)


1 Beacon Place, Exmouth, Devon, EX8 2SR

We aim to work closely with all our parents and carers.  Staff are available on the playground at the start and end of each day for those important ‘catch ups’.   A close partnership between parents/carers, the school and your child is essential to a happy, successful primary school experience – please do keep in touch!

You will find links to helpful and all our Statutory Information on this page.

If you require further information, do not hesitate to get in touch with our school office - we're here to help!

Collective Worship

Each day we hold an act of Collective Worship. Each week we will follow a theme and hold our Worship both as a whole school, within classes and every Friday as a Celebration Worship at Holy Trinity Church when families are invited to join us for Collective Worship followed by our celebration certificates.  Star of the Week awards are given each Friday – we will let you know when your child will be receiving an award.  Members of the clergy at Holy Trinity join us regularly and lead one of our Collective Worships each week.  Information about our weekly theme is shared in our newsletters.

During the Coronavirus Pandemic, we have been live-streaming our daily Collective Worship.  Parents and carers can join in using their child's Teams account.


We have no onsite parking and no vehicular access to the school site.  There are public car parks in the centre of Exmouth and there is some on-street parking in roads nearby. 

Please do not park on the double yellow lines that surround our school site – this is not safe for our children and causes traffic congestion.
