About Two Moors Primary School
Two Moors Primary School was created with the amalgamation of Elmore Middle School and Cowleymoor First School in September 1992. The school is divided physically between the older Key Stage 1 buildings, known as Dartmoor, and the newer Key Stage 2 building, known as Exmoor; hence the name Two Moors! It serves a largely council-owned estate, but also draws from a wider range within the town.
The school is very fortunate in having extensive grounds, landscaped with a variety of areas and habitats. As well as formal planted areas there is also a woodland, a pond area. and a kitchen garden. The emphasis is on children being able to explore their environment and learning from interaction with the physical world.
Recent inspection states there is an extremely positive ethos where all pupils are encouraged to become involved in a huge variety of different activities that help them develop their self esteem and broader interests. Ofsted 2013
Two Moors is a school at the heart of a community. July 2011 inspection states;"The school has a supportive and happy learning environment."

The school prepares children well for citizenship in a global economy, emphasising not only the academic skills but also the attitudes,teamwork and creativity so necessary for life in the 21st Century and for some.. the 22nd Century.
Two Moors offers opportunities for every child to develop their full potential and has excellent resources for sports,drama,arts and music, as well as the latest in educational and information technologies.
"The curriculum provides a range of imaginative learning experiences that helps pupils take responsibility for themselves and each other." Ofsted Feb 2013.
" Children settle quickly in Reception. This is because of the good care and welcoming learning environment both inside and outside, the positive relationships and effective liaison with parents and carers. Consequently the children feel safe and secure." Ofsted July 2011
"Children get an excellent start in the Nursery where stimulating activities are provided which enable them to settle quickly and prepare them very well for learning. This carries on in Reception where pupils continue to make outstanding progress in an exciting and lively environment... Pupils develop outstanding social and moral attitudes. These are underpinned by the strong ethos of this vibrant community." Ofsted Feb08
"The pupils feel that everyone in the school is valued. Relationships between pupils and with the staff are excellent. Both teaching and learning and the high quality curriculum are well matched to the needs of the pupils." HMI Inspection Dec06
