Week ending 7/5/2021

What a fantastic few weeks we have had since coming back from the Easter holidays. It has been so lovely to see the children settle back into their classroom routines and also, for some 'normal' activities starting up again- after school clubs and wrap around care provision. 
I have also been delighted to see classes out and about on day trips to enrich their learning in the classroom.
Moving forward into the next few weeks we will be focussing on developing your children's reading skills. You may have heard them mention Clarissa the Clarifier cat, Quentin the Questioner Koala, Polly the Predictor Panda and Sid the Summariser squirrel! I will put the posters on this blog so that you can see the sorts of questions you can ask your children as they are reading. I hope that you find them useful . Have a great week!

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 Nash - Headteacher.
