Believing and achieving to be the best we can be.

Welcome to Tipton St John Church of England Primary School. We are a four class school with approx. 95 pupils and a pre-school. Set in the beautiful East Devon countryside we aim to serve our community by providing an education of the highest quality reflecting our Christian belief that is the foundation of all that we do. We believe that happy children make for successful learners.

We place a strong emphasis on challenging and supporting every pupil to aspire and achieve academic success and mastery of the curriculum.

The Otter Valley Federation aims to achieve the highest standard of education in a safe and caring environment; keeping Christian values and ethos at the heart of the way we teach, live and learn.

We immerse children in a broad, rich curriculum developing each child’s curiosity: the desire and confidence to ask questions and discover answers in great depth. High self esteem is one of the keys to success in life and we aim to ensure that our pupils leave us as caring, happy and confident young people, equipped with academic skills, a social conscience and enthusiasm to continue their learning.

Please take time to browse our site and find out more about our successful village school. You are very welcome to visit us, see our school at first hand and meet out friendly school staff.

It may even be the first steps towards a long and fruitful partnership between staff, governors and parents playing an important role in the life of the school and your child’s education.
