Welcome to Sparkwell Primary School's website.  I hope you enjoy exploring our website and please get in touch if you would like to visit or find out more about our lovely little school.

Our Good Ofsted report in January 2019 says: 'The school environment is calm and purposeful. During lessons, pupils across the school are focused, respectful and attentive; The innovative curriculum motivates and engages pupils; Effective pastoral support ensures that pupils settle quickly and feel safe and happy in your school'.

I believe our school offers something different, our small size makes us feel like a big family, set in a peaceful rural location but not far from Plympton and Ivybridge. We are the small school with a big heart. In July 2021 a parent wrote: I just wanted to say thank you to yourself and all the staff for creating such a wonderful nurturing creative positive environment.  I could not be happier or more proud of the school my daughter attends and clearly enjoys so much.'

Following a consultation process, we have been approved to join the Link Academy Trust from August 1st and more information about what they can offer our school can be found here
