Welcome to Ide Primary School

Knowing children as individuals

A message from the Headteacher

On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to Ide Primary School.

We pride ourselves in providing a caring, happy and friendly atmosphere that nurtures every individual child and enables them to meet their maximum potential in each area of their growth and development.

At Ide, we believe that each child is different, yet equally important and valued. This ethos is tangible and can be felt as soon as you walk into our school building and the classrooms. High quality relationships are at the centre of everything we do and children and adults in our school have strong and positive relationships built on trust and respect.

Our dedicated staff know how important it is that children receive a broad, balanced and engaging education which focusses on high achievement and progress across the full range of curriculum subjects and places high value on social, cultural, emotional and spiritual development.


Through our wide- ranging curriculum, we ensure that children’s individual talents can be spotted and encouraged so that every child experiences success. Our values and learning behaviours support our enthusiastic and creative children to develop a passion for learning and curiosity that leads to independence, high aspirations and a desire to be the best that they can be, for themselves and for others.

Our thriving school is at the heart of village life and we work in very close partnership with our families, whether they live in Ide or close by, and with the wider community. We are committed to extending and strengthening our links within our local environment and beyond, as part of our drive to provide the very best possible opportunities for our young people.


We are always seeking ways to improve as a school and you will find details of our school improvement priorities below.


If you would like to visit us and find out more, I would be delighted to show you around the school. You can book an appointment by phoning the school or emailing admin@ide.devon.sch.uk
