General information and background
Ide Primary School has been at the heart of the village of Ide since the mid-1850s, and has grown over the years, we currently have 136 children on roll with a thriving pre-school on site.
The school’s designated catchment area covers about 15 square miles and essentially comprises the villages of Ide, Dunchideock and Longdown although over half of the children attend from outside this area.
Parents often choose the school because of its size, rural character, distinctive approach to the curriculum and the value that it places on knowing children as individuals.
The school nominally admits 20 children into each year group (Planned Admission Number - PAN), organised into five classes. Class sizes range between 19 and 32. There are eight teachers including the Headteacher, and seven teaching assistants. Despite only admitting a relatively small number of children per year-group, the dedicated and committed teaching team is able to offer a curriculum and range of opportunities of the kind offered by larger schools.
The school is perfectly situated in the heart of the village and has large grounds that are used to enhance the learning and social experiences of our children.
The school buildings comprise a mixture of the original Victorian construction with recent major additions, an outdoor multi-use games area (MUGA), an outdoor performance area and an outdoor learning area. The school also has a library, an ICT suite and a sensory room.
The school’s mission statement is clear and sets out its main aims based around developing the whole child so that they can be well rounded adults who enjoy learning and who take a constructive place in society. It is hoped that children’s time at the school will be happy and fulfilling and that, in later life, they will look back on their days at Ide as being amongst their happiest.
Ide Primary School is a partner in the Exeter Learning Academy Trust, a small multi academy trust that was established in January 2017. This comprises of Alphington Primary School, Bowhill Primary School and St Thomas Primary School. The school is also a member of the Exeter Consortium, an organisation of schools in Exeter designed to optimise procurement and share expertise.
