Back to School

Welcome back everyone!


It is with great pleasure that I can finally be saying welcome back to you all. We have missed having all of the children in school and can’t wait to see everyone.

This has been an extremely challenging time and I know that for some of you returning for this first time since March, there may be some nerves, worries and excitement. We’ve been working so hard to prepare for the return to school; to make sure everyone is safe and can have fun.

Through a variety of fun and engaging ways our children will learn to follow these 3 key rules:

Keep yourself safe

Keep each other safe

Keep our environment safe


Each class teacher has planned lots of super learning activities that will support everyone with their return to school. Lots of this work is supportive of the children’s emotional & physical health and well-being. We know that the children will be excited to see their friends, so there will be plenty of opportunities to play and socialise safely. We are so lucky to have a wonderful outdoor space, which means we can endeavour to take as much learning outside as possible.


There have been some exciting improvements inside the school building too during the holiday. We have lovely new and improved toilets, a new floor in class 1 and we have created a wonderful new learning space in the library. All the school needs now is the wonderful children that fill it with warmth, laughter and learning.


Please continue to check this website. Our class pages will keep you up to date with what your child’s class have been learning and with any other relevant information you may need to know. All correspondence that has been sent home regarding the return to school and any other letters home can be found here too.


I will be out at the entrance to the school on Monday morning to welcome and support you all with your return.

Stay safe

I have attached some of the posters they will expect to see around the school and an additional support poster for you.

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.
