About our school

 

West Coker CE VC Primary School 

 

Feb 2017: Ofsted rating Good

 

''Welcome to our website and thank you for taking the time to find out more about our school. At West Coker, we are a small, welcoming and friendly village school, where we take pride in knowing our children well, meeting their differing needs and supporting their development as well-rounded young people. We celebrate effort, as well as success and we recognise and encourage all talents and abilities, not just the academic.

 Our unique Friday curriculum is aimed at developing compassionate and independent citizens of the future. We want all our children to be able to access their learning, and have invested in training staff to support children emotionally and developmentally to reduce these potential barriers.

 We believe firmly that learning is best when it is meaningful and enjoyable, so work hard on delivering a creative and engaging curriculum. Our children tell us that they enjoy working together and teamwork is a theme that runs through our school.

 You are very welcome to visit our school, by appointment, and see for yourselves what great work our children do!''

Darren Troake, Headteacher


We are a 4-class village school on the outskirts of Yeovil, with around 65 pupils aged 4 to 11.

Values and Ethos:

  • Our children are happy learners.

  • Our children feel safe and secure and behave well.

  • Our children are proud of their school and enjoy their learning.

We aim for high standards in everything we do; to instil in children the desire to succeed and a love of learning.  We believe that children learn best in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect.  It is our desire that every child will grow in confidence as a successful learner, valuing the achievements and wisdom of others. We value, and place an emphasis on, the importance of developing the 'whole child'. We prepare children to be conscientious, well-equipped citizens of the future, through our roots in the Core Christian Values and our ethos of collaboration. We teach children how these values, rooted in the Christian story, are relevant to their modern lives and are at the heart of everything we do.

Our School Day

Our school day begins at 8.50am when the original school bell is rung by a member of our Voyagers Class.

All children enjoy a morning break to their lessons at 10.15am and lunch is from 12.00-1.00pm.

KS1 children also have a 15 minute break and fruit in the afternoon.

2.50pm everyday is Collective Worship. This includes class, singing and celebration assemblies on different days of the week.

School finishes at 3.15pm, but there is always the option of at least one after school club.
