Welcome to Shaugh Prior Primary School


A very warm welcome to our school’s website.

Shaugh Prior Primary School lies at the Southern edge of the Dartmoor National Park, seven miles from Plymouth. At the far end of the village, the rivers Meavy and Plym meet at the picturesque setting of ShaughBridge.

The school serves the villages of Shaugh Prior, Wotter, and Lee Moor and the outlying areas. The villages of Wotter and Lee Moor are central to the China Clay Industry. Each village has a hall for local events. Wotter has a hotel, doctors surgery and a Methodist Chapel. Lee Moor has a large public hall and a recreation area. In the middle of Shaugh Prior is St Edwards Church and a Public house.

The school is part of the Moorsway Federation which is made up of three primary schools. We have one governing body and one Executive Headteacher. By being part of a Federation it allows the children to have wider experiences and work alongside other children.
