Additional Information

The Headteacher is Mrs Catherine Cresswell. The school is small, just three classes, and is set in the beautiful village of Cerne Abbas. The close-knit nature of the whole community is reflected in the school with children showing care and consideration for others even before entering the Reception class. This is encouraged and built upon in order to foster co-operative and collaborative work. Lunch Break is from 12.15pm to 1.15pm.
