Otterham Community Primary School
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

As a school we are passionate about taking children out to explore their local environment (Cornwall) and discover what it has to offer to enrich their learning experiences.  We also travel further afield (e.g. London, Bristol, France) to give children a greater awareness of where they live and a ‘sense of place’. For children living in this beautiful but remote part of the country it is important to broaden their horizons.   

A great emphasis is also placed on children learning using the outdoor environment around the school. The grounds have been developed over the years to provide a range of opportunities for use throughout the curriculum. Our school garden has gone from strength to strength, state of the art new play equipment has been installed, a wormery and a weather station have been made and a range of sculptures and seating areas are provided for children’s use and enjoyment.

The children here enjoy a huge range of after school clubs that change from season to season. Some regular opportunities include Drama, Tag Rugby, Lego, Gymnastics, Gardening, Football, Dance, Computer Programming, Athletics, Cookery, Orienteering, Archery and Film Club. Sport has always featured highly at Otterham and as a result of specialist teaching we have had many successes in local competitions over the years, especially in Tag Rugby, Football, Netball and Swimming.  

The school employs specialist teachers to deliver a range of other subjects including French, Drama, Music, Religious Education and Art. This ensures that the creative curriculum is taught effectively on a weekly basis.   

Children in year one upwards are all offered a residential experience on a yearly basis which the vast majority partake in. The younger children spend one night away somewhere relatively local (Boscastle for Y 1/2, Tintagel, Westward Ho! or Bodmin Moor for Y 3/4) and the oldest children have ventured to London, France, The Isles of Scilly and Okehampton for their three day, two night residential. These experiences work wonders on the hidden but vital attributes of self-esteem, independence, confidence and organisational skills.
