Welcome to Okeford Fitzpaine CE VA Primary School. Following a ‘Good’ Ofsted grading in January 2015, our school has also been placed fifth in Dorset school league tables.


We feel privileged to be able to nurture our pupils’ curiosity for learning and pride ourselves on putting children at the heart of all that we do.


Our Christian values of respect, love, honesty, courage and faith permeate our everyday school life.

Furthermore, our motto, ‘Have courage and be kind,’ enables our pupils to achieve their full potential as they undertake their learning; encounter new challenges in sports, music, computing and the arts; and encourages care towards one another too.


Part of our success is due to our Christian ethos, as one Year 6 pupil commented, ‘Our school feels like a small family.’


Parent feedback has confirmed that our pupils are happy, safe and engaged with their learning. One parent commented that her daughter ‘…would come in (to school) at weekends if you’d let her!’ Another parent commented, ‘…she surprises us with her knowledge sometimes!!’ When our parents were asked if they would recommend our school to another parent, they replied with a resounding ‘Yes!’ One parent wrote, ‘A lovely village school with fantastic teachers.’


We remain committed to providing the best education for all of our pupils.


Please spend some time browsing our website which will enable you to gain a flavour of our school life as well as finding out about school events and achievements. Do come and visit our school. I would be delighted to show you around. To arrange a personal tour, do contact the school office.


I look forward to meeting you.

Warmest wishes,

Head of School
