Week ending 20th May 2022

Another busy week at both bases with Gunnislake facing our first Ofsted inspection for four years. As soon as I am able to let you know the outcome I will.
Last Saturday, some of our pupils accompanied our brilliant giant bird - 'Feathers' to Callington's Mayest. It was a beautiful sunny day and both Gunnislake and Delaware were represented wonderfully. A big thank you to Mr and Mrs Symons for helping to transport our giant to Callington and to Mrs Johnson for helping to add the finishing touches to 'Feathers'.
I am looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the Jubilee Picnic this Friday- fingers crossed that the weather will be kind to us. Gates will be open just before 12.15pm and you can stay as long as you would like to. If you are leaving before the end of school then please remember to sign your child/ren out with their class teachers. We will look after any pupils whose parents are unable to attend and release them at 3.00pm. Please collect them from the playground at Delaware as usual or in the Gunnislake playground from the minibus.

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.
