Ipplepen Primary School is very fortunate in occupying one of the most spacious and attractive sites in the whole of Devon, with a large playground, extensive playing field and an environmental area with pond.

We have seven classes, one for each year group, a computer suite with 17 computers, a library and a large hall which can easily accommodate the whole school for assemblies and has ample room for drama, music, P.E. and dance.

Our standards in the three core subjects, English, mathematics and science, are consistently above the national average.

We believe that living in Devon gives us wonderful learning opportunities, which we try to use to the full. OFSTED highlighted our use of field trips and residential visits and the cross curricular links with other subjects as a major strength of the school.
