The Beacon C of E (VA) Primary School

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


1 Beacon Place, Exmouth, Devon, EX8 2SR

01395 264300


Times of Day, Pick-up and Drop-off 


For the School (see below for Nursery-aged children)

Morning session: 8.50am – 12.15pm

Morning break KS1: 10.15 - 10.30am

Morning break KS2: 10.40– 10.55am

Lunch: 12.15 – 1.15pm

Afternoon session: 1.15 – 3.30pm


We also have our Extended Schools Breakfast and 3.30Club for children of school age.

The playground gate opens between 8.40/8.45am and we ask that everyone has arrived in time to be in class for registration at 8.50am.  We encourage parents to take their child straight to Reception and Year 1 until your child is confident to go in by themselves.

At the end of the school day, to ensure children’s safety, children in Recpetion, Year 1 and Year 2 are handed over to a parent/carer – please let us know if this is going to be someone different to usual.  Parents/carers of children in Key Stage 2 should wait in the playground.

Because our gates are single-width, it is helpful if everyone can enter by the main playground gate and leave by the Y1 area gate.  This avoids congestion in the narrow gateways and on the pavements.


Governor-Run Pre-School

Nursery-aged children (3 and 4 year olds) have slightly different session times:

Morning session: 8.50am - 12noon

Afternoon session: 12.15 - 3.25pm

Whole day: 8.50am - 3.25pm 

In the mornings, please come in through the main gate. At other times, please come in through the Admin Office Reception.

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.



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, drop-off, pick-up or wait, on the double yellow lines that surround our school site – this is not safe for our children and causes traffic congestion.
