Summer Week 3

Happy Friday! 


I’d like to start by saying a huge WELL DONE to our Year 6 pupils who have worked immensely hard this week and taken their Key Stage 2 SATs. Every child arrived at school each day early to enjoy a hearty breakfast and boy did they enjoy it! All of us here are incredibly proud of the positive and extremely hard working attitudes displayed by our oldest pupils this week. We have certainly seen a lot of ‘Keep going Kangaroos!’ You will find some photos of their breakfast club in the gallery below. 

Celebration Assembly

Well done to all of the children who received certificates for achievements in our celebration assembly today. In the photo gallery, you will see photos of this week’s stars and also some photos from last week’s assembly. (Due to technical difficulties I was unable to blog last week and am truly sorry about that!) Also in the hall this week, we have enjoyed Class 1 sharing their learning with us. To enhance their classroom learning about hedgehogs they used clay to create some very cute hedgehogs in their forest school session and even built them some cosy nests.

Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations

On Friday 27th May, we would like to invite all children to come to school dressed in red, white and blue to commemorate the Queen’s Jubilee. Children are more than welcome to take this non-uniform day to the next level by dressing up with a royal theme but this is optional! The children will be having a whole day of Jubilee celebrations, spending the morning taking part in a range of royal activities followed by a whole school street party. For this day of festivities, we are asking parents/carers for a £1 donation. This money will be used to cover the cost of the refreshments for our street party, and any left over money will be put towards FOPs latest fund raising project which is to buy new play equipment for the playground.

On the 5th June, the Parish Council are organising a Community Picnic on the school field. Please see attached flyer for details. The children will be taking part in a craft competition (don’t worry they will complete the craft at school), which will be judged by Reverend Richard. There will be 6 prizes in total and the winners will be announced at 2pm at the community picnic.

Playground refresh

I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the members of our community who have already donated items for our playground refresh project. So far we have received some pallets, tyres, outdoor paint and time for which we are extremely grateful. This week, we are asking if anyone has any unwanted pots and pans, metal or wooden spoons for our Pinterest inspired Music Wall. If you feel that you could help with this, do contact the school office.

Walk to School Week

Next week (WB 16th May) is national Walk to School Week so we are encouraging as many pupils as possible to come to school by foot, bike or scooter. We appreciate that some of you live too far to walk the whole way, but we’d appreciate your support with getting the message across, by endeavouring to walk at least PART of your journey. The children will be exploring the benefits of reducing use of cars during this week’s assemblies.

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.
