What the school says...
We are an improving school on the outskirts of Barnstaple with a very warm, friendly and dedicated staff that work extremely hard. We are striving to continually raise standards through a broad and rich curriculum that seeks to discover every child's special qualities and talents. The building has become very run down but is currently undergoing a transformation costing well over a million pounds with the addition of 3 new classrooms , new offices, a new purpose built library, a new playground and a landscaping project set to transform the grounds. Please do come and have a look, we welcome visits from prospective families. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
We are a fully inclusive school with a highly experienced Special Needs Coordinator who is also a fully trained Reading Recovery teacher. We believe wholeheartedly in the benefits of inclusion in all but a tiny minority of cases and enjoy the enrichment that our SEN children bring to the school. A fully equipped toilet for the disabled is currently being installed although we do still have a few classrooms in huts without full disabled access until our new building is completed. The main building and grounds will be fully accessible on completion of the project.
Interpreting catchment maps
The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.
Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.
For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained
If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.
Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.
Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.
*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.
The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
