Welcome to Appledore School

Appledore School is located in the heart of an ancient fishing village, rich in maritime history, on the junction where the River Torridge meets the River Taw in beautiful North Devon.

We have approximately two hundred and fifty children, aged 3-11, taught in single age classes with names linked to the sea. Many are named after famous ships built in Appledore Shipyard and reflect our pupils' pride in their local heritage and community.  

Through a rich and rigorous curriculum, our pupils play an active part in their local community and learn how to be prepared for life's opportunities, responsibilities and experiences now and in the future. The creative arts are of huge importance to us, not least because Appledore is a very creative and artistic community. New for this year is our community art studio and a new values curriculum that includes P4C (Philosophy for Children). 

We hope you can find the information you are looking for, but if you can't please do not hestitate to contact us and we will do all we can to help.  And as for the quotes, they are real!

From all the staff and pupils at Appledore School

Forest club 11th and 12th October

Last week’s theme was fire and fire safety, with both groups cooking a number of savoury and sweet items over an open fire in the fire circle. It was an opportunity to highlight the importance of acting responsibly in the circle and listening carefully to instructions. All of the children were respectful of the rules and with those safety aspects taken care of, everyone could relax and enjoy sharing stories, ideas and jokes with each other round the fire, while the food cooked. After eating the food and having a warm chocolate drink, the children then spent the remaining time on individually chosen woodland activities.

This week we have our last sessions before the half term break, but we will then be continuing with sessions until the Christmas holidays. Don’t forget to supply warm clothing, suitable footwear and waterproofs, to keep your children snug and dry.
