School Description

Okehampton Primary School and Foundation Unit is a much larger-than-average sized primary school. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (extra government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children who are looked after by the local authority and the children of service families) is average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is slightly higher than average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics in Year 6.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

Okehampton Primary School and Foundation Unit Reviews

Average Rating:


“An excellent school”
"> I have 2 children at Okehampton Primary School, one in year 3 and one in year 5. I have always found teachers to be of an excellent standard, my children have made fantastic progress year on year and really enjoy school life. I have always found teachers, including the head, approachable and available to discuss any issues if the need ever arises. The current head teacher is a strong leader who has really transformed the school, taking it from 'special measures' 6 years ago to being a 'good' Ofstead reviewed school currently. The school offers a great range of after school clubs in sports, arts and much more. Interventions are provided for children who are having difficulties as well as children who are excelling wither the regular 'Gifted and Talented' workshops. Overall, I am a happy parent with happy children who I believe attend a great school.
“Praise for Okehampton Primary School”
"> My little girl started in the school nursery and is now in Yr 1. I love the way the school communicates with me. My daughter is achieving, both academically and socially. She is starting to partake in after school clubs, equally these are run very professionally. I couldn't ask for more.
“Happy parent”
"> Fab school. My children love it. Staff are easy to talk to and head Mrs Fox is always able to answer any queries. The younger children always say the Head knows all their names without them having to tell her.
“Needs improving”
"> Not great. Results don't seem correct in comparison to early tests at secondary school. Poor communication skills from staff. In my opinion, it's time for head to move on so a fresh start for school.
