Our staff and governors are committed to providing each child with a creative and engaging education, which inspires confidence and resilience with a love of learning. With the support of parents, we challenge and encourage children to thrive and achieve as individuals, preparing them to be successful, compassionate and responsible citizens of the future.

We are all proud of our school, which has served the village and surrounding area in various forms since 1720. Visits are always welcome and prospective parents are encouraged to look around, meeting staff and children, at a mutually convenient time.

Education is about preparing our children for the modern world, equipping them with the skills they are going to need, to face the challenges ahead…and it starts here, in Puriton Primary School - where children’s appetite and zest for learning is unrivalled. Our passion is to provide a creative and flexible curriculum that’s truly fit for the 21st century - an education that really engages and motivates children, that awakes in them a real love for learning that will carry them through the rest of their lives; an education that instills respect for oneself, for friends, the local community, for our country and the wider world, irrespective of faith, traditions or cultures.

We deliver learning opportunities within a Creative Curriculum and help children to learn crucial learning and life skills through a Critical Skills approach. We value and foster a real Community Spirit in order to share the wide range of talents that we all have as individuals and to celebrate personal acievements.
