Shaugh Prior Primary School

Whole School

Bigbury Beach Trip

What an incredible day we had! We paddled, built sandcastles, ate ice creams, visited Burgh island, had to fend off seagulls from eating our lunches and even had a ride on the Sea Tractor which was an exciting first even for some of the adults. The children's behaviour was exemplary and we all had a marvellous time. The adults certainly went home buzzing with how fabulous it was, I hope the children were the same! 

Bunny Hop and Egg Rolling

A huge thank you to Shaugh Prior parents who managed to raise £249.00 plus another £70 from online banking for FoSPS to go towards the new Trim Trail.

Compost Workshops with Alex Mack from Devon County Council

Thursday 23rd March 2023


Mr Young was given some new parts to fixed the compost bin for the school to use.  Ali, from the kitchen, is ready to make the most of it for her vegetable peelings.

We learnt what can be composted and what animals live in the compost bin and how they create a habitat within the compost.

We discussed things we can reduce, reuse and recycle and even learnt the sign language for this!

World Book Day - Thursday 2nd March 2023


The highlight of the week was clearly World Book Day and the children had an impressive range of outfits on show.

We had some special activities to complete on the day. 


Class 2  had a Zoom call with author Stephen Pass who entertained us with songs and stories from his book ‘Madge the Mermaid’.


Week Ending Friday 7th February 2023


Thanks to Pamela Golding from The Shaugh Prior Community Change Emergency Group who delivered a range of trees for us last week – we have now managed with the help of the Eco Council and Mr Young, our wonderful caretaker, to get planting!


Please share your photos of tree planting with us. We look forward to seeing how they have established in the future.

Eco Council

Yesterday, Pamela Golding from The Shaugh Prior Community Change Emergency Group delivered a range of trees for us. We have a number of different species of trees; Oak, Field Maple, Crab Apple, Birch and Alder. We will be planting some in the school grounds, but there is also enough for each child to take one home and plant in their own garden. Please come and choose one at the end of the day along with the planting instructions, keep us updated with photos of where you decide to plant it at home.


Father Christmas Visits - Shaugh Prior Primary


Shaugh Prior Primary were very lucky to have Father Christmas visit us and give all the children a present.

The children were super excited to see him arrive and demonstrated excellent manners as they received their books.  As soon as they had torn open the paper they were engrossed in looking and talking about their new books.



Bag2School – Thank you to everyone who took part in filling up bags with unwanted clothes, bedding, curtains etc – we raised £80 which goes to FoSPS.



Santa Run – 2nd December 2022

A huge thank you from FoSPS – you raised an amazing £519.

Logan would like to thank his mum’s work, Devon Express Travel, for sponsoring him £50.

Secret Present Room

Thanks to FoSPS the children had a fabulous time choosing and wrapping little gifts for their chosen friends or family.
