This is Miss Majors the head mistresses classroom.The kitchen and serving hatch was at the far end of it and it doubled up as the dining room at lunchtime.I was still in the junior room when this was taken as i think Christine Houston would have been and you Sandra.

Thinking Nick Gilbert, Harry Studholme, Chris Brook, Sandra Courtier, Mike Howard, Sue Howard, Terry Pring. A few names the Doddi Oracle aka Ed Brook came up with.

Mum in the front row only a year or so ago moved from new buildings

Jean Freemantle at the back and Christine Houlston I think.

Welcome to Doddiscombsleigh Primary School. We are situated in the heart of the Teign Valley in Devon, surrounded by rolling hills and beautiful views. Here, children are educated in a friendly, healthy and happy environment.

As a Rights Respecting school, everybody is part of a caring community where we all get a really good education. At Doddi, we have small classes which means each and every one of us receives lots of attention. This helps us as the teachers can guide us through our lessons so that we can reach our potential. To encourage us to be the best we can be, the teachers reward us with house points for the effort we put into our work and for all our good ideas. The teachers also make sure that we are challenged in each lesson to help move us forward along our learning journey. Our teachers make sure that our lessons are fun and interesting and make every topic entertaining and exciting. We are encouraged to be active at playtimes where we have a wide selection of playtime equipment and we have ‘Wake and Shake’ sessions everyday to get our brains ready for learning. Our lunches are full of nutritious and delicious foods, with the correct balance from the Eatwell Plate to keep us fit and healthy.

At Doddi School, we also have lots of exciting events that are organised for us: the KS2 residential, the annual funny run and topic-work visits, such as fossil hunting at Charmouth, are just some of these. Doddi is a great school where every one of us gets a good education, develops many skills and has many exciting experiences to help us prepare for our future.
