Summer Week 8

Another week flies by! 

Bridge School Games / National Sports Week

We’ve had a great week taking part in the Bridge School Games. We started with an Opening ceremony in assembly on Monday. It was wonderful to see children and adults from other schools, each Head of School gave a good luck message and the Pelynt children gave a huge cheer when I appeared on the screen to wish them well! The children have taken part in 5 different activities over the course of the week and scores are being collated as we speak. News of the winning school will be announced next week…

Class 4 residential
Class 4 have had a wonderful week at Bideford Adventure Centre. Some of the activities have included: an obstacle course, The Big Sheep, high ropes, mountain boarding and Archery. Head over to the Class 4 blog to check out their photos.

School lunches

Thank you to those families who have been remembering to order their child’s school lunch on ParentPay each morning. There are still quite a few children who are coming into school and trying to order lunch when they arrive. Please could you ensure that the 8am cut off time is adhered to so that we can ensure our lunch order is correct. We also ask that you consult your child when ordering their lunch, so that they know what they are having. After next week, we will no longer be using dinner registers so your child will not be asked what would like to eat, we will be using ParentPay orders only. Please note that this is new routine for every child, even those who are in entitled to Free School Meals need to be pre-ordered on ParentPay. If anyone has any difficulty logging onto ParentPay, please contact the school office. We thank you for your support with this change in routine.

Parent questionnaire
It is at this time of year that we ask for parent feedback. Let us know how we are doing! Please copy and paste this link into your web browser.  


The questionnaire is open now and will close in a fortnight at 4pm on Friday 8th July.

Summer Fun afternoon: Thursday 7th July
Families are invited to join us for an afternoon of fun on the field. Children will have an opportunity to take part in the games and activities for the last half an hour of the day, supervised by their teachers, so please feel free to send your child to school with some spending money on that day. Most of the stalls will cost 20p per go. At the end of the school day, parents and families will be invited in to take part and browse the stalls. These will include: bake sale, raffle, second hand books/dvds, second hand uniform and may other games for the children to have fun with. Pop along and have a look!

All funds raised by this event will be spent on buying resources for the school, in particular some new play equipment for break times. In order to raise money, we request your help with some donations! If you have any of the following items that you can donate to this worthy cause, please drop them into the school office:

• pre-loved books/dvds/games/toys
• pre-own school uniform
• raffle prizes
• cakes (please do not drop off until the morning of 7th July)

Welcome to Pelynt Primary Academy.

We are a small school located in the heart of the village of Pelynt, Cornwall.

We are very proud of our supportive and inclusive ethos. All members of staff work so well together with one common purpose; to provide our children with the best possible learning opportunities so that they make progress and reach their full potential.

We pride ourselves on the way that our children play and learn together, creating a learning environment where everyone feels safe.

Our pre-school welcomes children from the age of 2 to 4 years old. The pre-school team work closely with our Early Years leader/reception teacher to ensure that we offer a high-quality provision and that there is a smooth transition from pre-school to school.

We are fortunate to be part of a rural community, with links to both farming and tourism. Our curriculum reflects these links and we endeavour to offer our children hands on learning experiences through the trips that we provide and the visitors we invite in.

Our pupils enjoy school; “our teachers make learning fun!”
They understand the importance of working hard and know that we have high expectations of them. We are passionate about offering our children opportunities to learn outdoors and we are very proud of our Forest School area.

We are dedicated to supporting our families and work in partnership with our parents to ensure the best possible outcomes for each of our pupils. The well-being of pupils is at the heart of everything we do, and our staff are trained to support the emotional development of the children. We listen, understand, nurture and care.

Our school is proud to be a member of Bridge Schools Trust, along with 13 other local primary schools. We joined the Trust in August 2016 following conversion to academy status the same year.

We are embracing the additional support and learning opportunities that this has provided.

If you would like more information about our school please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Emily Orme, Acting Head of School.
