A very warm welcome to Ford Primary School!


We hope the website gives you a flavour of our caring and successful school. 


We are a very popular school, with many of our parents and grandparents having attended! We have around 200 children from Nursery to Year 6. 


The older part of the building, built in 1895, is home to our KS2 classes and our 2 halls. This is joined to our newer building, which is home to our Foundation and KS1 classes, by our entrance and office block. 


In August 2023, Ford joined Learning Academies Trust and we work in collaboration with 17 other primary schools from across Plymouth! 


The school was last inspected in June 2022 and received a requires improvement grade with some great features…for which the whole school community is rightly very proud.

”...Serving the community is at the heart of Ford Primary School’s vision. Leaders ensure an inclusive, nurturing environment meets the needs of all pupils and families. Pupils say that everyone is welcome.”…OFSTED 2022


A little bit about me... Having worked in Plymouth, Devon and London, I  joined this lovely school in September 2018. Originally being from just down the road and growing up in Plymouth, I am excited for the successes and challenges that we are going to face! 

With a fantastic team, great children and an engaging community we aim to ensure every child can achieve their potential and reach for the stars!
