Welcome from the Executive Academy Head

Welcome to our school website which we hope is informative and gives you a good indication of what our school is like.

Diptford C of E Primary is a thriving small church school, built in 1865 and is part of the Totnes Hub of Village Schools, within the Link Academy Trust. We are situated just outside the town of Totnes, in the wonderful South Hams which has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Our school achieves high academic standards through the provision of an exciting curriculum that makes the most of our beautiful surroundings, a caring, nurturing environment with a family atmosphere and a team of dedicated staff, parents and Governors who strive to meet the requirements of every child.

Our school is a vibrant and exciting place to work in, yet our small size enables us to know every child, understand their needs, their talents and the things that motivate them. We aim to help them discover their potential and enable them to develop it.

Diptford has a good reputation built on high standards and a caring ethos, but we are always looking for ways to improve so that we meet the challenges of preparing children for the future.

With links to our partner schools within the Trust (Bearnes, Cheriton Bishop, Harbertonford, Hennock, Landscove, Stoke Gabriel, Tedburn St Mary and Yeoford), the church and the local community, our children are given lots of learning opportunities outside the classroom and exciting experiences in all areas of the curriculum.

We hope you enjoy exploring our website. If you would like to know more about our school, please contact us or come for a visit. We would love to show you around!
