Throughout my time as Headteacher here at Okehampton Primary School, it has been my ongoing goal to ensure that the children have the best experiences of school. I believe that a good attitude to learning starts with self-belief and self-esteem. This allows children to tackle any obstacles that may be ahead of them, both academically and emotionally.

Striving towards success and having aspiration, accumulates in a positive and rewarding learning experience and results in good achievement across the curriculum.

I see parental involvement in a child's education as a partnership. Working together with common goals ensures that the children have the best care and guidance that we can offer to help them succeed.

Our Vision Statement was renewed in 2015 and is our firm commitment : 

'We will provide outstanding Teaching and Learning so that each of our children is inspired to excel within an environment where they feel valued, safe and respected.'

Head Teacher

From 2nd January 2018, we became an academy school, and part of the Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust.

The Dartmoor MAT’s vision is to provide the highest possible quality of education for all local children, in order to ensure pupils from all backgrounds are able to succeed. To achieve this, the Dartmoor MAT is committed to have regard to the co-operative principles and values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, co-operative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility, and caring for others.

Accountable to the Members, the Trustees of the Dartmoor MAT are responsible for the general control of the Trust in accordance with the provisions set out in the Articles of Association and the Scheme of Delegation. The Board of Trustees is the accountable body for the performance of all Academies within the Trust and, as such, must:

  1. Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  2. Hold the CEO to account for the educational performance of the Academies and their pupils, and the performance management of staff;
  3. Oversee the financial performance of the Trust, ensuring financial probity and value for money.

The Board of Trustees meets on a half termly (or more frequently if necessary) basis. The Board of Trustees has the four core committees: Ethos, School Improvement, Resources and Audit which meet on a termly (or more frequently if necessary) basis, to enable more scrutiny and healthy challenge.
