Curry Mallet Church of England VC Primary School caters for children from the age of four to eleven. We are a voluntary controlled school which means that the Church of England is represented on the Governing Body.
Curry Mallet Church of England VC Primary School is a small primary school set in a rural, village location. The children are organised into three classes; numbers in each year group vary so we are flexible in our class structure.
The school is set in a peaceful and very attractive location, surrounded by trees and open farmland. Although small, the school has excellent facilities including three large classrooms, a hall and library, a large playing field and hard playground area, a secure infant play area, a Forest School area, a delightful environmental studies space and a well-being and sensory hub.
Children come to the school from the catchment of Curry Mallet and Beercrocombe, and beyond.
As we are a small school, we are able to form a very close relationship with all children and their families, and build an atmosphere which is personal, secure and friendly in nature.
Many parents and grandparents volunteer in school; listening to children read, maintaining the school gardens and the environmental studies area and helping with afterschool activities and educational school visits.
We have an active, supportive PTFA, organising fundraising events and supporting us with regular book swaps and second- hand uniform sales.
Education with care
At Curry Mallet School, we aim to provide a happy, caring, well-ordered and stimulating environment in which teaching and learning can flourish and where all members of the school community are valued equally as individuals.
We aim to foster a close relationship between the school, families and the local community. As a church school, we promote Christian values and take seriously our responsibility for the moral and spiritual well-being of the children.
To achieve this aim we seek to create conditions which will…
build pupils’ confidence and self-esteem
help pupils develop lively and enquiring minds
instil respect and tolerance for other people and the environment
help pupils communicate effectively
help children develop appropriate relationships with others
facilitate enjoyment in learning now and in the future
