Welcome to Langtree Community School

 

 

Langtree Community School is a small rural primary school in the heart of the North Devon countryside, 4 miles from the historic market town of Torrington and 8 miles from Bideford. 
The original school was built in 1929 and remains the centre of the village community, closely linked to the parish church. 
We have extensive grounds including forest school, trim trail and swimming pool, along with access to the multi use games area and neighbouring village hall. 
Our four class bases offer a broad and balanced curriculum to children from age 3 to 11. 
Langtree Community School is a safe, happy and welcoming place where staff, governors and parents work together to make learning fun and challenging. We treat everyone with kindness and respect.
 
At Langtree Community School we are all learners who support each other to think positively and to do our best at work, play and sports. Whatever their starting points we have high expectations for every child's learning outcomes, development of their skills for learning and their spiritual, social, moral and physical health and wellbeing.
Our school is part of the Two Rivers Federation with Bishops Tawton Primary School, working together to benefit all of our children. 
We welcome visitors and would love to see you, please contact our admin team to arrange a visit.

'Langtree is a very welcoming school.  Pupils behave well and greatly enjoy school.  They are polite and courteous around the school and say they feel safe.  Pupils flourish socially because they have excellent relationships with staff.  Pupils are well prepared for the next stage in their education because of the nurture and care provided for them.  Parents are rightfully proud of their school.  One parent emphasised this by saying, “Langtree is an amazing school that makes everyone feel welcome.  My child has thrived since being there.” ‘

Equalities and Diversity Statement

At Langtree Community School we are committed to providing equality of opportunity for all pupils and staff, and to providing a working environment which is free from discrimination, prejudice and harassment. We encourage respect and consideration for others, and recognise and value the school as a safe place for learning. The staff at Langtree Community School recognise that inequalities exist in all levels of society and believe that, as educators, we have a crucial role to play in eliminating racism, sexism and all forms of discrimination. We can promote equality by dealing with bullying, racial abuse and sexism immediately and by educating the young people in our care without prejudice.
