Excellent teaching leading to a love of learning

Welcome to Rydon School. We are a large primary school serving part of the growing town of Kingsteignton on the edge of Newton Abbot.  The school covers the full primary age from 5 until 11 years when the children begin secondary education.

Rydon's Mission Statement reflects our school's ethos and values. It is a place of high expectations, where everyone connected to the school is positively encouraged to do their best and where achievement is constantly recognised, appreciated and rewarded. Rydon is a place to learn and where equal opportunity and fairness are paramount in our educational beliefs.

Also, our aim is to be recognised as an inclusive school, a place where all members of our community can thrive regardless of race, religion, culture, gender or individual need.
