We are a small rural primary school in East Devon with three mixed-age classes. The mix of year groups within each class, together with the supportive environment created by the staff, governors, parents and the whole village community provide a learning environment within which each child can develop their potential and thrive.

Clyst Hydon is unique for a number of reasons for a number of people.

The key elements our children and parents feel make our school so special are:

  • strengths in supporting every individual child  (every child is known individually in a small school and we pride ourselves on being able to offer a positive ratio of adult to children)
  • Supporting and developing children with additional needs (whether they are special educational needs or whether children are gifted and talented)
  • a small, family feel across the school in which children mix with others of all ages in mixed-ability classes (which allows for high level differentiation to the individual child) working alongside parents who are  able to be very involved in the school and contribute to the 'family feel'  within our school community
  • KS1 nativity and annual KS2 play
  • Opportunities for all children from year 3 onwards to go on a rotation of annual residential field trips 
  • Our exceptional sports offer
  • Our fantastic music offer 
  • Outstanding staff who are committed to the children and who are always willing to spend additional time to enrich the lives of all the children at the school

It is a wonderful school for many people for many reasons. The Headteacher balances all of these aspects whilst ensuring there is a broad,  balanced and enriched curriculum offering the very best for all the children and their own individual wide range of interests and passions.

As a school, our passion is developing and enriching the lives of all our children within the school and extra-curricular programme. All of this is why we are special and that is why we are proud of our motto:

                   "Love Learning, Love Life!"
