It has been a wonderful return to school this week. I have thoroughly enjoyed hearing the children and seeing how happy they are to be back. The school environment feels so lovely, the children are excited and ready to learn. I have enjoyed hearing about their holidays and have noticed just how much some have them have grown!
We have welcomed our new reception children and they have had an exciting first few days getting to know their new teachers and friends. I am so proud of how they have settled. Thank you to our new parents too, it has been lovely welcoming you to our school too.
As the term progresses I am so hopeful that some of our normality will resume. We have plans for showing and sharing learning with you and we are looking forward to being able to invite you into school to do this.
The class blogs will continue to be our way of sharing with you. So please remember to check in on them each week. They are our opportunity to share with you what the children are learning and they also keep you up to date about all the things that your child might need in readiness for the following week. Click the menu tab, find classes and select your child’s class.
Remember if you have any questions about school, you can speak to/email your class teacher or Mrs Trevaskis (our school secretary). firstname.lastname@example.org
Outdoor learning and forest school activities take place every week and we endeavour to be outdoors whatever the weather. I feel very passionately about our children learning about and learning in the outdoor environment. The forest school area provides them with so many opportunities to explore and to build skills in resilience, problem solving and social interaction. It’s so popular with the children and supports the importance of play. I am really looking forward to spending time outdoors with them. Each class has a designated day where the children can come into school wearing their outdoor learning clothing. Please can they also make sure they have suitable footwear too.
Drop off and collection.
The drop off and collection have run fairly smoothly this week. I am hopeful that we will gradually speed up over time. We have adapted things in school to try to make sure we get the children into position ready to come home in time. The children are adapting back into life in school and we are getting quicker at some of the logistical elements
you for supporting us.

Welcome to Pelynt Primary Academy.
We are a small school located in the heart of the village of Pelynt, Cornwall.
Our school motto for staff, pupils and parents is:
‘I am me, together we are one’ and 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.
Currently, we have 88 children on roll and an additional 28 children in our pre-school setting. 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.
We have a close link with Polruan Primary Academy, a small coastal school which is only 20 minutes away from us. This tight collaboration enables both schools to maximise their resources and share expertise.
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.
