Welcome from the Headteacher

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Bratton Fleming Community Primary School. Bratton Fleming Community Primary School is situated in the heart of the village of Bratton Fleming 7 miles from Barnstaple in North Devon.

As a school averaging around 125 pupils in five classes, we take pride in our strong sense of community within school. Teachers, learning support assistants, meal time assistants, administrator and cleaning staff, join with the children in taking great pride in our school and we all work as a team to ensure it is always a happy and safe environment for everyone.

We keep you informed about your child's educational progress and activities in school, through weekly newsletters, termly parent/teacher meetings and child reports. We also encourage you to take a keen interest in your child's education and hope that you will come and talk to me or your child's teacher about any issue concerning your child.

At Bratton Fleming we are committed to working in close partnership with parents in order to provide the best for your child. We encourage children to achieve their best, recognising each child’s strengths and areas to develop. You will find a warm and welcoming atmosphere in our school, built on family values and respect for each other. We are an inclusive school and value all children for the contribution that they can make to school life, regardless of ability.

In September 2012 Bratton Fleming CP School federated with Holywell C of E School, near Tawstock. Both schools are now called The Gateway Federation and have one governing body supporting the running of both schools.

We are always happy to have visitors and would welcome the opportunity to show you around. Please telephone the office and make an appointment to view the school and meet with the Headteacher.

We hope you find our web site both interesting and informative.
