All Bridge Schools are now closed. We are operating a reduced service only for children of key workers and vulnerable groups.
I have been absolutely thrilled with the level of engagement of the children accessing, participating and completing their learning so far. It has been really wonderful to receive their work and to see photographs of their practical activities too.
The teachers have been feeding back to me about how it is all going, and I have been able to track how the children have been getting on and engaging.
I was really proud of one of our children who had, at first, found it difficult to access the work on the website. With the support of her teacher and pure determination on her part, she found her way and has informed me, on TEAMs today, that she is busy catching up on everything from earlier in the week. What a star she is. It really shows how important it is for the children to feel they can keep up with everything their friends are doing too.
The teachers are keeping a record for me of the work the children have completed, shared or joined in with live. I will be jumping in on some of their TEAMS sessions to celebrate this and present some virtual certificates.
On behalf of all of the staff, I wanted to say a huge thank you. You are doing a fantastic job in really challenging times.
Please stay safe and take care

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.
