Week ending 24th November 2023

Another packed week at both bases. I was privileged to watch our girl's football team play on Tuesday. They were one player short and put up a fantastic defensive performance against Callington. They didn't let up the whole match and I was super proud to watch them. Thank you once again to Mrs Hannaford for coaching them and parents who transported and supported them. On Thursday Mrs Hannaford and I took 2 teams of 6 Year 5 and Year 6 pupils to a Trust wide handball tournament which was held at Callywith College in Bodmin.All of the children were amazingly sporting and they worked really well as a team. They were brilliant ambassadors for the schools. Thank you Kody, Bettsie, Sam, Elsie, Josh, Eleanor, Lowri, Karena, Isabelle, Mikey, Freddie and Alfie!

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.
