Welcome to Gatehouse Primary School
Parents tell us that we are a calm, relaxed, hard-working and welcoming school. They feel we provide all children with a safe, secure and warm environment for learning. Our whole school staff is dedicated and hard-working and we are very well supported by an active PTA and Governing body.
Choosing your child’s school is a big decision for you as parents and can be quite daunting. We regularly show parents around the school during the day, to give them a better understanding of how the school works. If you would like to arrange a visit please contact the school office, where a member of staff will make an appointment for the Headteacher or her Deputy to show you around. This will enable you to see our children and staff working, provide time to discuss any questions you may have and give you all the information you need in deciding if this is the right school for you and your child.
The school can take up to 60 children in each year group, organised in SINGLE AGE CLASSES .
Applications are made through the Local Authority at www.devon.gov.uk/admissionsonline.
We benefit from having extensive grounds, which have been well developed to provide learning spaces more suitable for today’s curriculum. The curriculum is rich and varied with many opportunities to extend learning through educational visits, enrichment clubs and residential experiences. We work closely with children and their families to try and make their time spent at Gatehouse challenging, memorable and most importantly, fun.
We hope you enjoy the brief insight into our school in these web pages, which will be developed further over time. If there is any information you would like on the website which is not here, please do contact us and let us know.
