The staff and Governors of Withycombe Raleigh Primary School would like to extend a warm welcome to you.
We are a large Church Primary School situated on the outskirts of the wonderful seaside town of Exmouth in East Devon.
We all work very hard to ensure every child in our care is given the opportunity to reach their full potential so that they leave us well-equipped to enter into their next stage of education and on into the challenges of adult life.
Our school is dedicated to creating a happy, stimulating learning environment supported by the Christian values of GRACE - Generosity, Respect, Agape, Courage and Empathy.
Mrs E Jones, Headteacher
We now have a Home Learning page so we can share messages and learning resources with you.
School will close at home time on Friday 20th March in response to the directive to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our arrangements for keyworker and ECHP families have been sent home. If you are unclear, please speak to a member of staff.
The Department for Education has launched a new helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education.
Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:
Phone: 0800 046 8687

This information applies to children from keyworker families attending school after the official closure.
If you have reported to us that your child is absent due to displaying symptoms of coronavirus (continuous cough and/or high temperature above 37.8), your child cannot return to school until a 7 day period of isolation, from onset of their symptoms, is complete.
If anyone in the household is displaying symptoms, all members of the household need to isolate for 14 days. For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when their symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14-day isolation period.
This means that if children display symptoms of coronavirus, they cannot attend school for 7 days from the onset of the symptoms, even if the symptoms have ceased, and even if that takes their isolation period beyond 14 days in total.
In the event of children returning to school before the set isolation period is complete we will contact parents/carers and ask them to collect their children as soon as possible. Children will be isolated within school until they are collected. Thank you.
