About the School

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.

The school is a rural primary school with a stable roll – our current number on roll is 77.  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.  There is access to 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 and a delightful environmental studies area.  A small adventure play area adjoins the playground.

Children come to the school from the catchment of Curry Mallet and Beercrocombe, and from the surrounding area.

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.  Parents are welcome to visit the classrooms at any time, and are encouraged to take a full part in the education of their children.

Many parents give us some of their time to help in the classrooms, oversee the environmental studies area, and help with after‑school activities and outside school visits.

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 would aim to foster the 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

Times Table Rock Stars

Roald Dahl Day

On the 13th of September 2016, (the day Roald Dahl would’ve been 100) the whole school had to come into school as Roald Dahl book characters for 100 years old Roald Dahl also to celebrate all his amazing books.

We did it to inspire more reading to the school and interest readers to new books, also when we read it helps us develop in our literacy.

We had so much fun. We went around in our house teams to different stations around the school and did different things like: drew Mr Twits beard added all the grotty things he has in it, we also made our own cocktails we made up our own gobble funk by thinking of two different words and then put them together to create a word. We did loads of other exciting activities afterwards as well. We also discovered Roald Dahl books that we had never had heard of before
