Welcome to West Hill Primary School

On behalf of the staff, governors and children I would like to welcome you to West Hill Primary School. I hope you enjoy visiting our website and am sure that you will find lots of useful information about our school, our aims and our activities.

West Hill Primary School is a vibrant and successful school situated in the lovely village of West Hill near Ottery St Mary, Devon. We currently have 7 classes from Reception through to Year 6 (age 4-11 years old). All children in each class are in the same age range.

At West Hill Primary School our mission is to create a happy, secure and stimulating learning environment in which all members of the school community can grow in self-esteem and develop their potential as human beings. Our children receive high quality teaching and this is evident in our end of year results which are well above national expectations.

We believe in an effective triangulation process between home, school and child where everybody is working closely together. Parents and carers are encouraged to take part in their children’s education and are welcome into school whenever possible.

We are proud to have been rated as outstanding following our last OFSTED inspection in 2007. Inspectors found ‘an extremely positive atmosphere pervades the school and there is a clear commitment from staff to maintain high standards and providing a high quality education for all pupils. Excellent care, guidance and support contribute significantly to pupils’ academic and personal development. In this positive school community all pupils are valued.’

Please feel free to book an appointment and visit us during the school day. We hope both you and your children will be very happy here.
