The Autumn Term begins for children on Monday 7th September 2020.
It has been so wonderful to see all of the learning taking place this week, especially with our whole school project based around the book: Here We Are, by Oliver Jeffers. I have heard the children talking about life on earth, about the planets in the solar system, about themselves and the role they play in taking care of our planet. I’ve seen some fantastic writing, art and science work. The class displays are looking fantastic. You can read more about your child’s class learning on the class pages.
We have settled back into the routines and new procedures really well. We’ve focused on building relationships and the children’s physical and emotional well-being. This will continue as we progress and build upon their enjoyment and achievement.

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.
