Digby the Tedder Primary School is a small, friendly community primary school serving RAF Digby and the surrounding villages. 

The original school was opened in 1926 and was called Digby Aerodrome School. It was rebuilt in 1967 and renamed in honour of Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord Tedder, a famous RAF wartime commander and former Station Commander of RAF Digby. Later improvements include a fantastic multi-use hall, new outdoor EYFS areas and a new classroom to cater for growing numbers. 

Outside there is a playground with trim trail, a large field, two outdoor areas for the EYFS children, a nature area and gardens.

CLASS ORGANISATION

At present we have five mixed-age classes oraganised as follows.

 

Class 1 Reception/Year 1 Miss Jones
Class 2 Year 1/Year 2 Mrs Rayney
Class 3 Year 3/Year 4 Mrs Sturton/Mr Tierney
Class 4 Year5 Mrs Durkan
Class 5 Year 6 Mr Wiley

 

Unlike many other schools, we experience a high level of mobility due to service personnel postings; therefore, the class structure may change from year to year. The governors are committed to maintain class sizes of no more than 30 in Key Stage 1 and 35 in Key Stage 2. 

If it becomes necessary to adjust classes, parents involved will be kept fully informed.
