What a great school. My two kids attended this school and we couldn't have been happier with it. They always loved the place, felt part of the community, and they emerged well balanced, happy kids with a solid educational foundation. The negative review from fernie just doesn't sit with my experience. I certainly didn't see the head and the governors wandering around the playground looking for parents to ostracise. We paid for extra tuition, but only for the 11 plus exam and not cos the school was failing to deliver its core teaching. Our kids entered secondary school well prepared and absolutely up to speed with their contemporaries. I would recommend this school to anyone, and frequently do. Just go and have a look, and then find better if you can!
I have two children at this school - I have always found the staff and head approachable and have always done there best to deal with any queries or concerns. Both my children are very happy at the school. I appreciate that at times issues arise and the outcome does not always meet the parents expectations but that does not make it a bad school. The children generally leave Whitchurch, happy, well rounded and with above average grades. The opportunities within Whitchurch make them confident children with good self-esteem. There are many opportunies included sports, drama, cookery clubs, community events and a major asset to the school the fantastic music teacher. I feel all schools have negatives but without a shawdow of a doubt Whitchurch Primary is a positive for the local community of Tavistock. Keep up the good work.
