For more than one hundred years, on this
beautiful edge of Dartmoor, Bovey Tracey Primary School has been
inspiring generations of children to rise to life’s challenge of
becoming fulfilled, content and an integral part of the world around
them. Our passion is simple: to provide the very
best environment in which every child can learn, develop and thrive.
Every child is unique and important, and we relish our role in
helping each find his or her own future.
We offer a diverse
and challenging curriculum with high quality teaching, backed
consistently by energetic and focused classroom support.
Learning can be hard, but we try to make sure it is always fun.
We nurture those who may be falling behind and also spur on others
who are ready to stretch themselves further.

Bovey Tracey Primary School children are grateful to have received sponsored from Ben Nock Fencing (pictured) for their new cycling jerseys. Additional sponsorship was provided by Ian Hutchings from Moorland First Aid.
They were delighted to wear the jerseys at the Tour of Britain where the children came 3rd in the Dartmoor School Sports Partnership 'Race to the Summit'. Amy Cornish won Queen of the Mountain for the fastest primary school girl up to the top.
The children were thrilled to meet Sir Bradley Wiggins after the race (photo attached) who kindly signed their jerseys.
The new jerseys will be also worn at all the Partnership Cyclocross events and hopefully will become a regular sight in Bovey Tracey with the new cycling paths that are now open.
