Our first reception class is called Butterflies, and is home to our class mascot 'Butters'. Children met Butters during home visits and he will accompany us on lots of adventures throughout the year.


Our classroom is in the Great Links Tor Building in the grounds of Okehampton Primary School. It's a lovely setting and we'll be based here until our brand new building is ready for occupation in early 2019.
