Welcome to Boasley Cross Primary School
Boasley Cross Primary School is a thriving cross roads school, which serves the village of Bratton Clovelly and the surrounding area. Although the village is 3 miles away, we have excellent links with our community and strongly value the family type atmosphere within our school. Boasley Cross has 56 pupils on roll aged 4 to 11, the majority of whom will then feed into Okehampton College. Boasley Cross employs 13 dedicated staff and education has been provided on this site since the 1800’s. We are committed to providing an excellent education for our children and have extremely supportive parents and governors. We are proud of our children’s achievements and the many ways in which they are prepared for the challenges of life and the world around them. When you visit our school, you will meet polite, well-behaved children who take great pride in themselves and our school.
As from the 1st September 2011 the school became a part of the vibrant Dartmoor Federation; our sister schools are Lydford Primary, Bridestowe Primary, Exbourne CofE Primary and Okehampton College.
On 1st November 2012 Boasley Cross changed its legal category from Community to Foundation school along with Okehampton College, Bridestowe Primary School and Lydford Primary School. We have established a charitable trust to be known as the Dartmoor Co- operative Learning Trust. Exbourne C of E (VC) Primary School (also a member of The Dartmoor Federation) will join the Trust as a partner, alongside Okehampton United Charity, Devon County Council and the Co-operative Movement. The values that lie at the heart of the Co-operative movement are: self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. These values are embedded into every aspect of school life and also support us to interact with our communities in a more meaningful way. We are looking forward to working collaboratively with other trust schools across the South West in the future, as we develop our curriculum and strategic thinking.
Our School has been awarded the Sports England Activemark Award in recognition of our promotion of daily physical activity both within and outside the school day. We also have the ‘Healthy Schools Award’ and the ‘Devon Inclusion Award, which celebrates our ability to meet the needs of all our pupils. We hold the Silver Award for our Travel plan and are committed to encouraging parents to car share.
