Welcome from the Head of School

Wishing you a very warm welcome to Oldway Primary School


I’d like to introduce myself as the Executive Head of School at Oldway for the Summer term - Danny Brown.  I am currently the Head of School at Roselands Primary School and I will be overseeing the senior leadership teams in both schools.  I feel very honoured to have this role - especially working at Oldway where I trained to be a teacher 15 years ago.  I will be working very closely with Oldway's new Head of School during the Summer term to ensure the transition into her role is as smooth as possible.


Oldway is a special place to learn and play, for its children and for its staff.  We are fortunate to have a well-deserved reputation locally in Torbay for providing an exciting and challenging curriculum for our children and our creative and hard-working staff are truly committed to achieving the very best for our children.  We are close to the beach and have great facilities within school for PE, outdoor learning, drama, art, music and swimming.  


Oldway serves its local community with the majority of our children living within walking distance from school.  Whenever we have visitors to school or the children are on school visits, we always get feedback about how appreciative, polite, well-mannered and responsible our children are and how confidently they are able to talk about their learning, the progress they are making and matters important to them.  Oldway’s values shine through what we learn, but also how we learn and how we behave.


We look forward to working with you and your child throughout their time at Oldway.
