East Allington Primary is a village school which is at the centre of the local community. We aim to enrich all our children’s learning and toe sure that the school is at the heart of the community it serves.
We work closely with parents and carers to ensure that children are supported and develop a love of learning and exploration, using the environment to support them.
There is a strong ethos of using the outdoors to enrich learning. Children and staff at East Allington are constantly asked, ‘why am I doing this indoors?’ To support this approach, part of our top field has been turned into an outdoor learning classroom.
East Allington is a supportive school where relationships between all those who work in and attend the school are a strong feature. As our school ethos, written by the pupils, states we are an Active, Bold and Caring school
We use the many and varied skills of our staff to enrich the curriculum for the children. Staff from Kingsbridge Community College also teach ICT, Modern Foreign Languages and Design Technology to further enhance what we can offer. Some subjects are taught discretely while others can be approached through topics in which subjects can combine.
These are used to bring the school community together and encourage our family ethos. Key messages around pupil safety and discussions around events in the wider world will be aired in these assemblies. e also hold class assemblies which enable classes to share their work with their peers.
There are a few curriculum plans, these can be found below on the links below:
