We are located in the Wedlands area of North Taunton, in the South West of England and were formally opened in 1949. From 1st April 2013 we became a member of the Collaborative Academies Trust (CAT) family of schools.  

Through our Pre School and Primary School we cater for children aged 2-11 years old. 

We hope that each child and their family enjoy being part of our school and that the memorable years of primary school are full of excitement, challenge, interest and value.

Our school prides itself on being caring and collaborative. This comes first and foremost from the staff who work here – you will notice a team spirit and a sense of support and partnership. This means that you can speak openly and honestly to any of us and we will, together, work at doing the best for your child.

It is my vision to work as a team, together with parents, to ensure that each and every child here has the best opportunity possible to prepare them for future life. Children are at the heart of all that we do here at Priorswood.

We aim to be open, friendly, caring and supportive. Our School Values were created through our collaborative approach, involving children, staff and parents. They form the basis of our daily life here at Priorswood and are based on ‘PRIDE’ (Positivity, Respect, Independence, Determination and Excellence). 

This website will give you some key information about our school, if there anything else we can help you with please do get in touch with our school office and arrange a visit. A paper copy of the information on our website can be provided free of charge.

With best wishes,

Caroline Lancey
Acting Head of School
