Welcome to Puriton Primary School!
In this school are future Scientists, Artists, Athletes, Musicians, Innovators, Leaders and more. Who will your child be...?
Our mission is to provide each child with a creative and engaging education which inspires confidence and resilience with a love of learning. By challenging and encouraging children to thrive and achieve as individuals, we aim to prepare them to be successful, compassionate and responsible citizens of the future.
Puriton Primary School is a very special place.
Our school is set in the beautiful Somerset countryside and is at the heart of the local village community. Our children are kind and respectful towards others and enjoy coming to school. We have strong links with parents, governors and the wider community, recognising the value that this brings to our children and their education.
We pride ourselves on offering a warm, nurturing setting in which children feel happy, confident and safe. A happy pupil is a successful one, which is why our team of dedicated and enthusiastic staff all work towards the same goal: that children enjoy learning!
Our creative curriculum provides children with exciting learning opportunities that allow them to dig deeper into their learning, drawing upon real life experiences. We work hard to ensure that the right level of challenge is provided to ensure that every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential.
The behaviour and attitude to learning at Puriton is excellent and was recognised by Ofsted. Children are encouraged to follow our simple Golden Rules: be 'Ready, Respectful, Safe'.
These are underpinned by our Core Values of Resilience, Responsibility, Compassion, Honesty, Respect and Collaboration. Through embedding these core values, children at Puriton become well-rounded, respectful citizens of the future.
At Puriton, we work together towards achieving our Key Aims:
- To ensure high quality teaching for every pupil, which meets their needs, challenges them appropriately and helps them grow.
- To ensure that all children make good progress from their starting points.
- To provide an enriched, inclusive curriculum offer, whereby no child is disadvantaged.
- To allow children to become increasingly resilient and independent by providing appropriate challenge.
- To design learning opportunities so that children can problem solve and reason across the curriculum by applying a range of skills.
- To establish a strong moral foundation so that children have positive self-image and this is reflected in how they behave and interact with others, embedding British Values.

Head of School
Education is about preparing our children for the modern world, equipping them with the skills they are going to need, to face the challenges ahead…and it starts here, in Puriton Primary School - where children’s appetite and zest for learning is unrivalled. Our passion is to provide a creative and flexible curriculum that’s truly fit for the 21st century - an education that really engages and motivates children, that awakes in them a real love for learning that will carry them through the rest of their lives; an education that instills respect for oneself, for friends, the local community, for our country and the wider world, irrespective of faith, traditions or cultures.
We deliver learning opportunities within a Creative Curriculum and help children to learn crucial learning and life skills through a Critical Skills approach. We value and foster a real Community Spirit in order to share the wide range of talents that we all have as individuals and to celebrate personal acievements.Find out more
