Week ending 8th July 2022

The main event this week was Sport's Day. It was held on the field at the Delaware base and turned out to be a great family occasion with lots of fun races, just the right amount of sunshine and many smiling faces! Thank you to all the staff who worked hard on the day -helping to make it a success. Special thanks goes to Mr Clatworthy for organising the day and scoring! Congratulations to the Red team who were this year's winners. 
Running alongside Sport's Day (sorry about the pun) was the Year 6 Enterprise Fair. The concept of this was simple- each of the six groups were given £20 and had to come up with a product to market (for a good profit) at Sport's Day. They certainly achieved this as they almost tripled their initial investments and took £346 on the day. This money is being used to provide them with some well-deserved end of term treats! I hope that Lord Sugar is watching carefully!

Welcome to Gunnislake Primary Academy. We are a small, friendly village school in the historic village of Gunnislake - the first village in Cornwall.

We have very close links with Delaware Primary Academy as I am the Headteacher of both schools. Our aim at Gunnislake Primary Academy is to instill a love of learning in all of our pupils. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, following the National Curriculum and also taking into account the interests of the pupils. See our curriculum pages for some examples.

We pride ourselves for being an inclusive school and we get to know the children and their individual needs to help them to fulfil their potential- socially and academically.

We were one of the first schools to join Bridge Trust and have enjoyed working and learning as a larger group of schools. If you are interested in your child joining us then please telephone the school for a visit. You are sure to receive a warm welcome!

Believe. Achieve. Enjoy.

Lynn Cox - Headteacher.
