The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives. Robert M. Hutchins

Welcome to our website

Welcome to Plympton St Maurice Primary School. This is a small, friendly school catering for 4 to 11 year olds.

We have excellent Baby Care, Child Care and Pre-school facilities on the school site.

At Plympton St Maurice we believe that each child is an individual and is treated with care and respect.

We are a hardworking staff who are committed to providing good education in a safe and caring environment.

Working and learning together for the future is the ethos of the school. Parents, teachers and the whole school community working in partnership to ensure children achieve their very best.


It is our vision that at

Plympton St Maurice Primary School pupils will be


‘successful, confident, responsible citizens’



*Successful learners , who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve;

*Confident individuals, who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives;

*Responsible citizens, who make positive contributions to society.


(this vision was established in September 2013, by All school staff, Governors and Parent Council)

Child Protection – Duty of Care

Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.  We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are advised to inform all parents and carers of our duty to report concerns that a child may have been neglected or abused to the relevant authorities. We may do so, in some circumstances, without your consent and/or without informing you.

The school's Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mrs S J Tustain.  In the absence of Mrs Tustain the Deputy Safeguarding Leads are Mrs S Clark and Mrs S Baxter.  Mr J Didymus is our Governor responsible for Safeguarding.

The Plym Academy Trust consultation period is now closed.




What is being proposed?

The Governing Body of Plympton St Maurice Primary is considering a proposal to convert to an academy within a local Multi Academy Trust (MAT) in September 2016.


Plympton St Maurice Primary, Glen Park Primary, Chaddlewood Primary, Boringdon Primary and Woodford Primary Schools are proposing to form a primary group of schools within the Plym Academy Trust. Although the partnership would have an overarching name, each school that enters the MAT would keep its own name and would retain much of its independence while benefiting from being part of the trust. There would also be opportunities for the children and staff to work together across the schools.


Any decision on whether or not to convert to a MAT will be taken by our Governing Body based on what is considered best for our school, children, staff and wider community. As part of the decision making process, the Governing Body is committed to undertaking full consultation with our stakeholders and will take their views into account before any final decision is made. The purpose of this statement therefore, is to introduce the proposals to you, inform you to where you can find additional information and how you can take part in the consultation.
