Welcome from the Headteacher, Jayne Keller

A very warm welcome to Heathcoat Primary School and thank you for joining us on our website.

Choosing a school for your child is a tremendously important decision and one that we take very seriously and would like to help you with. We understand that as a parent you want to send your child(ren) to a good school and to get them off to the very best start. Here at Heathcoat Primary we are absolutely devoted to ensuring that we provide the very best education for our children. We have been working hard to develop all areas of our school and are enjoying seeing clear improvements in the children’s attainment year on year.

At Heathcoat Primary we strive to put our children first. We are really proud to be one of Tiverton’s longest established schools and at the very heart of our locality and indeed of education within our town itself. We enjoy a long history of being highly regarded as a good school, which is deeply caring of its pupils and for being very firmly committed to providing the very richest, high quality curriculum for our pupils.

The wonderful Early Years Foundation Stage unit will help to make sure that your child’s introduction to our school will be in an exciting, caring and purposeful learning environment. It will certainly help to get them off to the very best of starts! We understand just how vital it is that our pupil’s first experiences of school are positive. Our play-based approach to learning enables children to develop in a way that is most in tune with their natural behaviours as young learners.

Our teachers and support staff work very hard to create a happy, yet challenging learning environment for our pupils. We have high expectations for both our pupils and for ourselves. We want pupils to enjoy learning and to strive to make the progress that will help them to go forward and achieve their full potential and ambitions well beyond school. It is part of our school’s ethos to welcome every child and every family in exactly the same way. We work hard to form a strong and trusting relationship with every parent/carer and child. We seek to inspire and challenge every pupil, in order to help them to fully develop their character, confidence, sense of compassion and to become determined to achieve their full potential in all that they might do. We welcome families into school and strive to keep all parents involved in their children’s schooling by offering support workshops, open events and regular information sharing activities.

We are also very involved in the local learning community and are a member of the Tiverton Cooperative Learning Partnership. Many of our staff spend time working with colleagues from other schools in the area and we often host and run professional development events for teachers and support staff from the schools across the town. In January 2017,  Heathcoat Primary School federated with Rackenford Primary School and Tiverton High School. Moving forward, the three schools will work closely together to ensure that the children get the best possible education that we can collectively provide.

This is just a small glimpse of who we are and what we are actively trying to achieve for all our pupils here at Heathcoat Primary School. So please, explore and enjoy our website and do feel most welcome to come along and visit us and see us in action. We would be delighted to meet you.
