Primary Small Schools - Small Can Still be Beautiful

Description

Small schools face potentially huge problems from limited budgets, limited numbers of staff and children, and isolation in rural communities. So is there anything that other teachers can learn from them?

In this programme we see how Burrington C of E Primary and Widecombe-in-the-Moor Primary have found creative solutions to the potential problems of funding, staffing and relative isolation to deliver considerable benefits to their pupils.

In fact both schools would claim that their smallness can actually bring considerable benefits to their students.
