Welcome from the Academy Head

Welcome to our website which we hope is informative and gives you a good indication of what our school and nursery (pre-school) is like.  Please also find our Facebook page for even more, up-to-the-minute photos and information.

Diptford C of E Primary is a thriving, small C of E school which encompasses Little Dippers, our Nursery and an integral part of our school. It was originally built in 1865 and we are now 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 - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Just a short drive from the A38 and being able to offer a range of before/after-school clubs and wrap around care from Nursery to Year 6, we are a great choice for your child even if you live outside of the village.

Our school has an excellent reputation and achieves high academic standards through the provision of a rich and exciting curriculum that makes the most of our beautiful surroundings. Our curriculum is broad, varied and includes fantastic opportunities, such as forest school and outdoor learning, surfing, archery, eco-projects, gardening, baking and so much more!  

Diptford Primary is a vibrant and exciting place to be yet our small size enables us to know every child in real depth; to understand their talents and what motivates them. We aim to help every child discover their unique and individual potential, and support them to develop it.  We offer a caring, nurturing environment with a unique family atmosphere. Our dedicated team strive ever higher to offer an excellent, well-rounded education to every child underpinned by our inclusive Christian ethos that supports all of our pupils and families. Our vision - for every pupil to 'Let Your Light Shine' - really sums us up and how we support our pupils to thrive and flourish with confidence.

With links to our partner schools within the Trust (Bearnes, Broadhempston, Cheriton Bishop, Drake's Harbertonford, Hennock, Ilsington, Moretonhampstead, Otterton, Landscove, Stoke Gabriel, Tedburn St Mary, Widecombe in the Moor 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.  'Small school, big opportunities' is what we are all about!

We hope you enjoy exploring our website - don't forget to view our virtual tours of the school and Early Years.  If you would like to know more about our school and nursery or would like to arrange to come for a visit, please contact our administrator Penny Amos on 01548 821352.  We would love to show you around!
