We break up for half term on Friday 23rd October. The children return on Tuesday 3rd November.
This week parent consultations are taking place. This year it is a little bit different, as you will be having the opportunity to talk to your child’s class teacher over the phone. Hopefully you have managed to book your time slot. We always enjoy these first discussions in the school year, as we are able to share with you how they have settled back into the school routine and how they are progressing with their learning. We also value the feedback from you.
School photographs are taking place on Tuesday. These individual photographs have been safely organised and will take place in the school hall. The teachers will be there to monitor the photos and to encourage some beautiful smiles!
In the summer term the current Year 6 children trailed the use of Microsoft Teams. This is an online, secure way for teachers and pupils to collaborate with learning and communicate ideas. All children in KS2 (year 3, 4,5 & 6) will shortly have access to the secure class site. This is part of our contingency plan in order to allow learning to continue in the event of any localised lockdown, school or bubble closure. We are busy doubling checking and chasing all of the parental consent for this during this week. If you have not yet had a chance to do so, please can you log into the Arbor portal to complete the home school agreement.
We would welcome your feedback on the introduction of the new PSHE and RSE curriculum that has just been launched across the trust. As the DfE stated in July “Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way. (Gavin Williamson Secretary of State for Education). The documentation can be found on our website under policies and PSHE. Please use the form on the website to leave feedback by the 22nd October.
Half term is sneaking up on us! The children have worked so hard this term and we are so proud of the way they have adapted to the changes and new rules. I hope you are continuing to enjoy looking at the class pages. These have been a wonderful way of sharing with 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.
