East Worlington Primary School is situated in the village of East Worlington which is between Chulmleigh and Crediton and close to Witheridge. It is part of the Chulmleigh Academy Trust, a group of 3 primary schools (East Worlington, Lapford and Chulmleigh) and Chulmleigh Community College.
East Worlington is the school of choice for many families from the surrounding villages, who are attracted to the friendly community feel of the school, the high academic standards and the excellent standards of behaviour. It is very well regarded in the local community, many members of the community support it through volunteer work at the school or by supporting school-based activities.
East Worlington is a two teacher school. Children in Reception through to Year 5 are educated in two classes on the East Worlington site while the Year 6 pupils are educated at the Year 6 Academy. The Y6 Academy, whilst linked to Chulmleigh Primary, is based at Chulmleigh Community College, and provides excellent preparation for transition to secondary education the following year. The children are transported daily by the Trust and have access to college facilities and teaching , including design technology, drama, food technology, French and PE.
East Worlington Pre-school forms part of a Partnership Foundation Stage Unit with the Reception children and shares a classroom and outdoor learning area. This provides the children with the opportunity to become familiar with school and the staff from a very early age, and for the staff to really get to know the children. The children are able to benefit from being part of the Trust and they join in with lots of extra-curricular activities run both by East Worlington School and the other schools in the Academy Trust.
As well as the main school buildings the school has access to the adjacent Village Hall, which is used for P.E. and for performances. The school grounds provide many opportunities for outdoor learning.
The children’s behaviour is exceptional and allows them to work cooperatively with each other, regardless of age; the older children are good role models for the younger children. Children make good academic progress and are well prepared for their next steps to secondary education.
Why not come along and have a look around the school for yourself, to see what we can offer? Just ring the school to make an appointment. We look forward to seeing you.
