Staggered Start and End of Day Times

When returning to school in the Autumn term there will be staggered start and end to the school day to minimise the possibility of parents congregating at the school gate and reducing the number of parents on site.

Puffin Class | Drop Off: 9:00am - 9:05am | Collection: 3:05pm

Robin Class | Drop Off: 8:55am - 9:00am | Collection: 3:15pm

Swift Class | Drop Off: 8:50am - 8:55am | Collection: 3:20pm

Kingfisher Class | Drop Off: 8:45am - 8:50am | Collection: 3:10pm

There will be a one way system in place. Please arrive through the car park gate and sanitize your hands on arrival. We then ask you walk up the path with your child. Your child will enter school via the ramp and be met by their class teacher, we ask that you then leave by the pedestrian gate.

We ask only one parent comes to school to drop off/collect your child. If you have children in more than one year group you can collect/drop off your children at the first time slot of your children's classes.

At Abbotskerswell Primary School, we aim to provide all children with a safe, challenging and stimulating environment, where children can grow personally, socially and academically. We offer an innovative curriculum underpinned by dedicated and imaginative teaching that develops a lifelong sense of purpose and curiosity in learning.  To do this we wish to secure a passion for learning as well as an ability to think independently. Our desire is to develop the character of our pupils so that they are respectful, responsible, successful and happy.


We have designed a curriculum which provides rich, varied and memorable experiences inspired by stimulating teaching that enables every child to achieve excellence in all areas of school life and make the progress they are capable of.  Our fantastic staff team recognise the uniqueness of each individual child and nurture their gifts and talents.  We believe wholeheartedly that for education to be successful, our children will flourish not only academically but through their love of learning.


Through our curriculum intentions, we aim to give the pupils a chance to experience many opportunities and perhaps find a passion which will be lifelong. We believe that children should develop an appreciation for the world in which we live, enabling all to recognise and celebrate diversity, develop tolerance and mutual respect, by encouraging children to think of others first and to take an active and constructive place in society.


At Abbotskerswell, there is a committed and dedicated team of teachers and support staff all of whom strive to provide the very best quality of teaching and care. All our staff promote children’s physical, emotional health and wellbeing and develop their personal, moral, spiritual and social skills.


The school seeks to be at the heart of the community and works in strong partnership with parents and the wider community.  We hope that this site provides a snap shot of some of the fantastic things we do, but we would warmly encourage you to visit the school and see our vibrant and active community for yourself.


Abbotskerswell is a happy place to work and learn. If you would like more information or to have a look around, please feel free to make an appointment with the office.
