  • Small Group Open Events October 2021

    Due to Devon being in a Covid Enhanced Response Area until 4th October, we have taken the difficult decision to change the way we conduct our open events by replacing the College Open Evening on Tuesday 21st September with a wide range of smaller and more personal events. We are very keen to meet prospective parents/carers and pupils and are delighted to be able to offer a ‘package’ of Covid-safe opportunities to help inform your choice of secondary school for September 2022.
    Small group tours – wide range of dates available
    We are offering small group tours with our Executive Headteacher Michael Johnson, Deputy Executive Headteacher Neil Payne and SENDCO Laura Mackie. After school for those who may not be able to visit in working hours and morning tours for those who wish to visit during a normal school day.  Being able to see the school ‘in action’ provides an excellent window into what we offer here at Chulmleigh College, and with the tours being led by our Senior Leadership Team in a small group environment, you will have ample opportunities to ask any questions you may have. 
    We are offering a wide range of dates for these tours, please click on the links below to book.

    Year 6 Taster Morning Saturday 16th October 9am-12pm We are delighted to be able to offer prospective pupils the chance to attend a Taster Morning at the College, where they will experience a range of lessons and activities.


About Us

At the preschool we take children from 2 years old and provide an exciting and happy environment with an emphasis on the prime areas of learning - personal, social and emotional development, communication & language development and physical development.  The 2yr olds free flow with the preschool children which encourages their language development and socialising.  In our main continuous provision we pride ourselves in providing opportunities for early writing in the form of Writedance activities, and language development through our daily Let's Talk sessions.  Our 2yr old sessions run Monday to Thursday and 3/4yr old sessions Monday to Friday.    We offer wrap around care Monday - Thursday 8am-6pm and Friday 8am-1pm.  We are registered for 2year old funding (Golden Ticket) and 30 hour entitlement.

Our Reception and Preschool run as one unit. This allows for seamless transition for those children at the start of their school careers. Joint planning for continuous provision as well as small group work follows the interests of the children and with a strong emphasis on experiential and outdoor education. The nurturing ethos of the PFSU provides a secure and happy experience of a child’s first year of school.
