'Pupils make good and sometimes outstanding progress because they are taught well.' Read how good Doddi School is in our latest Ofsted report

Our recent Ofsted inspection was on the 24th and 25th September 2013. We were
visited by one inspector for the two days, who watched lessons, looked at our attainment
data and spoke with staff, pupils and parents. He judged the school to be good with the
behaviour and safety of pupils being outstanding. We feel his report is very positive and
acknowledges many of the good things we do as a school. Some of his comments were;
· Pupils make good and sometimes outstanding progress because they are taught
· Teaching is consistently good with some that is outstanding.
· Teachers have high expectations and pupils respond to these by working hard.

Stone Age Day at Embercombe, November 2014

The Key Stage 2 children had the most amazing experience at Embercombe when they travelled back in time to the stone age.  There, they met two stone age women, Jane and Jessie, who showed them lots of the equipment they used in their everyday lives such as flint daggers and felted shoes.  They demonstrated how they made fire by rubbing two sticks together to 'get the fire from the trees' which was just incredible to watch.  The children then got into three clans and undertook a variety of different activities including stone age pebble painting, making pots from

Class One visit the Aquarium - November 14

On Tuesday 18th November, Class One went on an adventure to The National Marine Aquarium!

We were very excited! Class One had been learning about living things and habitats, and had all been given a different sea creature. The children researched their sea creature and had also drawn some fantastic pictures of them before we left. Now we had to find them at the aquarium!

Children in Need Day at Doddi, November 2014

Children in Need Day was celebrated enthusiastically by all of us here at Doddi.  Everyone dressed up as Pudsey or one of his animal friends and began the day with a fabulous catwalk in the school hall.  We then went to the Teign Valley Hall to join Christow and Dunsford Schools to see Theatre Alibi's production of Mucky Pup - a very thought-provoking yet amusing play.  During the afternoon, the School Council organised a fantastic treasure hunt for all of us.  The money we raised from the selling of Pudsey ears is still being counted and will be announced soon.
