Symondsbury Church of England VA Primary School

The Church of England


Hello and welcome to Symondsbury Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School. 

We are a very caring school. We seek to retain and develop the values of family friendship and promote a sympathetic, tolerant and considerate approach to relationships throughout our community. With space for only 112 pupils, our children all know each other well and as they grow they are gradually encouraged to take on responsibility for each other and for the school.

On entering our school, your child will be entering a world where learning is at the heart of everything. We treat everybody as an individual and try to create a wide variety of opportunities so that every aptitude is valued and has the means of expression. We have a talented and creative staff who all work together as a team to ensure that the children in our care receive the best and broadest education possible, achieving high standards whatever their particular strengths and weaknesses.

We promote traditional Christian values and discipline, with Religious Education and worship central to the life of the school. We are fortunate in the strong support we receive from parents, the church and the wider community and this enables us to provide an exceptionally wide range of extra-curricular opportunities for your children.

We are part of the Bridport Cluster of Small Schools as well as the larger West Dorset Schools Collaboration (WDSC).

We hope that you and your children will share the strong sense of pride we all feel about our school and look forward to welcoming you into our community.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Emma Roberts
