  • 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.


Lapford Community Primary School

Lapford Community Primary School, Eastington Road, Lapford, Devon, EX17 6QE


At Lapford Community Primary School we offer a broad and balanced curriculum that is enriched in a number of ways to excite our children’s appetite for learning. We aim to plan activities that enrich the experiences and learning of our pupils, so that they are challenged or get to experience things that they otherwise might not.

Whilst the teaching of basic skills in English and Mathematics are very important at our school, we are proud of offering our children many other opportunities which support their development into rounded, confident and tolerant individuals.
We provide opportunities for our children to experience learning further afield, for example we arrange class trips which compliment the learning we are doing in class. These may include trips to watch theatre productions, visits to Rosemoor or even the zoo!
As well as planning visits outside of the school, we are also incredibly fortunate to have a woodland area at the back of our school. Children can enjoy a huge range of activities in this area, including bug hunting, den building and circle time.

We have an exciting range of clubs for our children to participate in that are run by staff and outside providers. They include football, tag-rugby, dance, guitar, recorder, art and coding club. These clubs take place after school and during the lunch-hour. We are fortunate to have a huge field on our grounds and this is used most of the year, including during the half term holidays when Saints Southwest offer Half Term courses for children to attend.

As well as making the most of Lapford, we have many local community members visiting our school and contributing to our children’s education. Whether it be older community members sharing their memories, Open the Book, Fire Safety visitors or volunteers supporting us with our learning in class, we promote and value these relationships.  
We enjoy opportunities to take on challenges and we encourage children to participate in events, such as World Book Day, Sports Relief and NSPCC Numbers Day, by dressing up and enjoying a range of enriching activities.

Children’s achievements, both within school and outside school, are celebrated in our Celebration Assemblies which are held once a month.
