Welcome to Mary Tavy and Brentor

Community Primary School


We are an outstanding small village Community Primary School for children aged 4 to 11 on the edge of West Dartmoor National Park in Devon.  


We currently have 89 children on roll with 4 classes. We are very proud that our class sizes are below the national average which gives the teacher more time with each child.

Class 1- Reception and Year 1

Class 2 - Years  and 3

Class 3- Year 4

Class 4 - Years 5 and 6


We are extremely proud of the achievements by all our children who are supported in their learning by dedicated staff, Governors and parents.


There is a wide range of Clubs that are offered free of charge to the children. These currently include Singing, Ukulele, Art, Sewing, Cross Country, Drama and Chess Clubs. We provide these clubs so that the children have a richer and more varied school experience whilst having fun. We are regularly invited to sing, play sports and display work within the community.


We like the idea of being part of the community and we regularly use the local area to support the children’s learning. We also open our doors to the community by holding events such as the Macmillan Coffee Morning, an annual Open Day and our School Fayre.


Attendance is excellent and is currently above the national average. We are also very proud that our standards are very high and children leave our primary school with levels at and often above the national and Devon average.


Please feel very welcome to telephone the school to arrange a visit to look around. As a maintained Devon County Council (DCC) school, all applications for places into our Reception class should be made through the DCC Admissions Team.  Any other admissions ie. Year 1 to Year 6, should also be made via the Local Authority but please contact the school in the first instance on 01822 810384.
