Welcome to our school website, I hope that it will give you some idea of who we are and what makes our school so very unique.
Ilsington C of E Primary School is a small rural school nestling in the Devon countryside on the edge of Dartmoor. We have an integrated pre-school with trained early years practitioners working alongside our primary classes and ensuring the highest standard of transition as our children reach primary age.
Ilsington has a long history of providing a warm, caring, and creative environment where all children are welcome and where they are encouraged to be independent, active learners. Our school’s culture is firmly rooted in it’s Christian values of Friendship, Kindness, Honesty, Resilience, Respect and Compassion. These values are underpinned by our belief that all children are loved by God and in the need for equity for all of our pupils.
I became Academy Head in September 2020 having taught in Devon schools throughout my teaching career, in fact I trained at the school as a student teacher. I have never forgotten the welcoming atmosphere that the school provided then for all who entered its doors and I believe that is still the case today.
Our school has benefitted recently from an extensive refurbishment which has seen a substantial extension of our pre- school setting and an overall improvement of the classrooms ensuring that they are all light and spacious. We have also received amazing support from our wonderful PTA, the Friends team who have funded a range of wonderful resources for the children too. Our school is a part of Link Academy Trust and benefits from being a part of a multi academy trust which understands small, rural schools and which encourages our school's own unique character.
