Ermington and Ugborough Primary Schools established the Beacon Federation in 2011 and now work collaboratively to provide an excellent education for the children in our local area, preserving the best traditions of each school while taking advantage of new opportunities together.  I am proud to work with a dedicated and highly professional team committed to each individual child’s development.  We believe that school should be a safe, challenging, supportive and fun place for children, working with parents and carers to give them the best start possible on their educational and personal journey.

I hope that our website will give you an idea of what each school is like.  If you would like to know more you are very welcome to come and see us in action - just phone or email and we will be happy to help.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete and return the questionnaire.  It is always helpful to know what you think about the school, what is going well and where there may be things we could do better.  The Governors have reviewed the results and a full report has been published. This can be found on the Governor's page.

Obviously, since the survey was anonymous, it is not possible to follow up individual concerns which were raised but please do let your class teacher or another member of staff know if there is anything at all which is an issue for you so that it can be sorted out.

There were very many very positive comments about both schools so thank you for those as well.  They will be passed on to the staff whose hard work and commitment was praised by so many of you.
