  • 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.
    After school tours: Morning tours:
    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.


Nappy Changing Policy

Statement of Intent

No child is excluded from participating in our setting who may, for any reason, not be toilet trained and who may still be wearing nappies or equivalent.  We work with parents towards toilet training, unless there are medical or other developmental reasons why this may not be appropriate at the time.

We provide nappy changing facilities and exercise good hygiene practices in order to accommodate children who are not yet toilet trained.

We see toilet training as a self-care skill that children have the opportunity to learn with the full support and non-judgemental concern of adults.


  • A list is displayed in the WC of the children who are in pull ups/nappies.
  • There is a changing area available in the setting.
  • Each child should have their own pull ups/wipes in their personal bags, but the preschool do have a supply of their own, if needed.
  • Gloves are put on by staff before changing starts and the area prepared.
  • All staff are familiar with the hygiene procedures and carry these out when changing children’s nappies and other personal hygiene accidents.
  • Pull ups/nappies and wipes are placed in a nappy sack and put in the nappy bin for disposal.  Any other soiled garments, ie. knickers, pants, clothing are put in a carrier bag with the child’s name on and handed to the parent/carer when the child is collected.
  • Children are prompted and encouraged to use the WC throughout the session, and children in pull ups/nappies are changed regularly, ie. morning, after lunch and afternoon. 
  • Each child’s individual needs are taken into consideration and all staff are aware of these.
  • Children are encouraged to be independent and to wash their hands after using the WC.
  • All staff are aware that they do not make any inappropriate comments whilst changing children in our care.
