Welcome to our school

At our excellent school we celebrate your child. We support them to care for others while valuing themselves. Here your child will develop their strengths, know their next steps in learning and achieve their goals. We teach all children to keep safe, be independent, make decisions and help each child to recognise the impact of their choice on others. We never lose sight of the knowledge and skills your child needs if they are to grow up to being a unique, reliable and thriving adult within a wide community.

*In 2011 East-the-Water was recognised as one of top 50 schools nationally for sustained improvement

Little Skippers

Welcome to the Little Skippers foundation stage unit.

We believe that all children are eager and able to learn. Every child should have the best possible start in life and the support they need to fulfil their potential. A secure and happy childhood is important in its own right and provides the foundation for all children to independently explore and develop within stimulating experiences and healthy relationships.

At the core of our Foundation Stage Unit is quality education and care for our families. Children from 2 years old to 5 years old are cared for in our foundation stage unit. Our two year old provision, Little Tiddlers is integrated into our main unit, Little Skippers for three to five year olds. We believe that early childhood should be secure, safe and happy. We provide a nurturing environment which offers excellent care and education for our families. 

Free childcare places start the term after your child's second birthday, so don't miss out, find out if you are eligible today. Visit www.devon.gov.uk/2gether or call 0345 155 1013 for further information.

 
 
 

Doodle Bugs display art work

 

Earlier in the year Doodle Bugs Art Club were asked to enter an art competition. The winning art work was displayed in the waiting room of Wooda Medical Centre, Bideford. Ten members of Doodle Bugs Art Club visited the centre and celebrated their achievements with Wooda medical staff. Afterwards the children celebrated with tea and cake in the Royal Hotel. Staff in both the medical centre and the hotel commented on how mature and well behaved the children were.
