Dolton C of E School is set within the picturesque village of Dolton in North Devon. Dolton is a medium-sized village located between Beaford, Winkleigh and Merton and is just a short drive from Hatherleigh, Torrington and Okehampton.
We are a small village school that take children from 2 - 11 years old. All our pupils are supported by our teachers as individuals to strive for excellence in a caring, family and community-centred rural environment. Our connected and creative curriculum offers an opportunity for children to explore their own talents as well as learn new skills.
The school aims to serve its communities by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers its pupils.
We value a relational approach to learning as we believe that children can only learn when they feel safe, nurtured and happy. We focus on respect, courage, aspiration, friendship and forgiveness and support our children to develop these values under our thematic based learning.
Primary School sets the foundation for lifelong learning and we strive to ensure that when children leave our setting to move onto secondary school they already have the tools to be courageous advocates for their own, their communities and the world's future.
