Heads Blog



I want to continue to thank parents and children for adapting so well to these new circumstances. As you may have already guessed the Government advice has not changed with regards to 'bubbles' and school organisation so the current organisational procedures and use of both school bases will remain in place after half term.
I am delighted to share the good news that Mrs Marshall is expecting her third child (Some of you who frequent the Delaware base will have noticed this.) She is taking advice from her midwife and will not be returning to school  during the second half of term- I know that you will wish her the very best for the arrival of baby Marshall in January. We are currently in the process of recruiting a replacement and I will let you know as soon as I know who this is!

We would welcome your feedback on the introduction of the new PSHE and RSE curriculum that has just been launched across the trust. As the DfE stated in July “Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way. (Gavin Williamson Secretary of State for Education). Please use the form on the website to leave feedback by the 22nd October. You can find the survey in the policies section under PSHE/SRE.

A reminder that half term is from 26th October to 30th October and the school will not be open for pupils on Monday 2nd November as this is an INSET day.

At Gunnislake we are committed to providing the highest quality education possible for every child in order that they will continue their learning through into secondary school and for the rest of their lives. In April 2011 Gunnislake entered into a federation with Delaware Community Primary School to form ‘The Delaware and Gunnislake Federation’. In April 2014 Mrs Lynn Nash was appointed as Executive Headteacher responsible for both schools. She is supported by Miss Claire Martin, who is based at Gunnislake Primary School. Since December 2015 the school has been part of Bridge Schools Trust.

Gunnislake is a happy and hard working school, we have wonderful children and an exceptional staff team. We are proud of the community spirit that exists, and of how everyone involved in our school works together to create and maintain a broad and balanced curriculum that caters for the needs of our children at this time, whilst preparing them for the future world in which they will live.
