Summer Week 12

It has been a rather emotional day here at Pelynt as another year comes to an end. 

Year 6 Leavers
Class 4 had put on a fantastic performance to their families yesterday afternoon. ‘Pelynt’s Got Talent’ went down a storm and we were very proud of all of the Year 5 and 6 children who wrote and organised the whole play. This was followed by a presentation and farewell for each child. We would like to wish our Year 6 pupils the best of luck for the future and remember; you can be whatever you want to be if you set your mind to it!

Goodbye Miss Gates and Miss Gendall
This week we have also said farewell to Miss Gates and Miss Gendall, our class 1 teachers who are both off to pastures new. Thank you for all you have done this year at Pelynt Primary and we wish you all the best for the next chapter.

Reminder: September timings
Gates open 8.40am
Registration: 8.45am
Class 1 and 2 home time: 3.15pm
Class 3 and 4 home time: 3.20pm

At home time, the gates will be unlocked at 3.10pm to enable parents and carers onto the KS1 playground where they can collect their children. Classes 3 and 4 will be led round by their teachers to meet you at 3.20pm.

Don’t forget Monday September 5th is an INSET DAY. Children’s first day back at school is Tuesday 6th September

School Meals

Parents can book school meals via ParentPay through the summer holidays, but KS2 parents please ensure that you have money in your account to cover these meals. Also please remember that if your child is moving from Year 2 to Year 3 they are no longer eligible for universal free school meals.

Kids meal offers
With the current climate and sadly ever-increasing FSM entitlement numbers, I’ve come across some outlets offering subsidised food and meals for children which I thought might be of interest to you.
Morrisons: Kids eat FREE at Morrisons cafe when an adult spends £4.50 or more on a meal. This is an ongoing offer.
ASDA café: Kids eat for £1 at Asda. Each child is entitled to a meal when they spend £1. Maximum of 1 meal from the kids menu per child, per day.

Goodbye from me!
I would like to say a huge thank you for all the support that I have received this term, not only from the fantastic staff here at Pelynt but the parents and carers of the pupils. The feedback I have received from many of you has been really appreciated. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know your wonderful children and feel that I have been welcomed into the Pelynt family! Ms Rich is very lucky to be joining such a supportive community and I wish you all the best of luck for the future.

Have a fantastic summer holiday everyone!

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.
