Join Our Team

East Worlington Primary School, for children aged 2-11 years, is situated in the small village of East Worlington, which is between Chulmleigh and Crediton and close to Witheridge.  It is part of the Chulmleigh Academy Trust, a group of three primary schools (Lapford and Chulmleigh) and Chulmleigh College.

East Worlington joined Chulmleigh Academy Trust and became a converter Academy in August 2011. We are proud to be part of the Trust, which provides a supportive network, sharing good practice with subject leads working across all three primary schools. This includes joint staff meetings and opportunities for continuous professional development for staff, as well as centralised support for: personnel; estates management; finance; health and safety; IT; governance; safeguarding and SEND. There is also a Trust-wide Deputy Primary Executive Headteacher and Trust Primary Administrator who work with the three Heads of School.  School meals are prepared at the College site and delivered on a daily basis.

There are currently 47 pupils on roll with 11% Pupil Premium, and it is the school of choice for many families from the surrounding villages, who are attracted to the friendly community feel of the school, the high academic standards and the excellent behaviour. It is very well regarded in the local community and many support it through volunteer work at the school or by supporting school-based activities.

East Worlington is a two-teacher school, with a teacher-led nursery also on-site. Children in Reception through to Year 5 are taught across two classes, while the Year 6 pupils attend the Academy at Chulmleigh Primary School. The Academy brings together the children from all the Trust primaries in a single centre of excellence in their final year of Key Stage 2. The pupils in the Year 6 Academy experience enhanced transition opportunities with Chulmleigh College; with specialist teaching and access to the College facilities. Transport is provided from East Worlington to Chulmleigh by the Trust.
