I feel very privileged and proud to be the Headteacher of The Topsham School.
The school is set in beautiful surroundings, at the heart of the town and offers high quality education for children of Nursery age, right through to Year 6.
We pride ourselves on the happy and caring learning environment we have created in which our children feel safe, valued for who they are and, in which, they can flourish and thrive.
Staff are dedicated to ensuring the highest quality of teaching leads to high quality learning and the best possible outcomes for all children. The success of every child is at the heart of all we do, and our values ensure that we focus on every aspect of a child’s development; personal, social, emotional, spiritual, physical, academic and creative.
We know education is a three-way partnership, built on positive relationships between children, teachers and parents. We are proud to be a smaller school and see this as a real strength. With our own Nursery (Little Acorns), and as a one form entry school, staff, children and parents, quickly build trusting relationships on entry and these are strengthened as children move through the school.
We strive to ensure that we communicate effectively with parents about their child’s progress, achievement and emotional well-being and our open-door policy ensures that parents can meet with teaching staff as and when they need to.
Choosing a school for your child is an important decision. To help you in making this decision please do come and visit and see our passion for education in action.
We look forward to meeting you in the near future!
Kind regards Emma Pipe Headteacher
