Healthy Schools & Healthy School 2011
The Healthy Schools programme supports the links between health, behaviour and achievement; it is about creating healthy and happy children who are ready to learn. To achieve this award, the school had to meet 62 criteria, including aspects of healthy eating, emotional health, child protection, improving the environment, and citizenship. We have also been awarded Healthy Schools+ for our work with our children to prepare them to tackle issues around drug and excessive alcohol use.
Active Mark 2011
The school has been awarded Active Mark Gold by Sport England for promoting an active lifestyle and providing a high-quality sporting curriculum for our children. The school provides opportunities for children to take part in all major sports and to compete in local competitions. Over the past few years the school has been outstandingly successful in winning a large percentage of the events we have entered including qualifying through to the South Devon Tag Rugby Finals in both 2012 and 2013.
Arts Mark 2011
The school also holds the Arts Mark, demonstrating our commitment to the visual, performing and musical arts. We can offer instrument tuition in many instruments as well as vocal coaching. We also have links with drama providers and can offer children the opportunity to take Lambda awards.
We are very pleased to be one of only four primary schools in Devon to hold the ICT mark. This award recognises the school’s excellence in the use of Information Technology to enhance children’s learning. We have spent a large amount of money to ensure the school has the very latest, cutting-edge technology. The ICT Mark assessors stated that our children reach the standard achieved by the average year 6 child in ICT by the time they reach year 4!
SIAS - Outstanding
"All Saints’ Church of England Primary School is a community which loudly proclaims the roots of its ethos in Christian teaching and Christian values. This makes a profound difference to the life of the school and creates an environment where children are valued as individuals and whose talents are given every opportunity to flourish. It also has a very positive impact on children’s academic, personal and spiritual development" .(SIAS report December 2012)
