All Bridge Schools are now closed. Delaware will provide a 'Hub service' for Gunnislake children who are children of key workers and vulnerable groups.
I cannot believe that we have reached the end of the second week of lockdown already. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for engaging so well with the home learning which has been set by the teachers. Please do not hesitate to give us a call if we can assist you any further e.g. with printing sheets or providing paper. This situation is still very new and different for us in school and we are trying to make remote learning as effective for your children and as stress free for yourselves as parents! I am really delighted with the way in which you and your children have engaged with the learning activities. I feel that there are plenty of activities to keep the children busy but, by recording lessons/directing you to pre-recorded lessons, there is a degree of flexibility to the day. I feel that this is particularly important if there are multiple children in the home with limited devices. We are monitoring the engagement with the learning and will contact you if there are any concerns or to offer help.
Throughout the Lockdown, pupils are still able to receive Headteacher's awards virtually. Children can collect their certificate and reward from the treasure chest when they return to school in person.
We have also had some brilliant learning from the key worker children in school and many other Headteacher awards have been presented too - Stephen, Ivy, George, Cara , Imogen (x3), Ben, Zack, Liam, Joe and Isla (apologies if I have forgotten anyone!)
I wish you all a safe weekend and will see some of you next week.

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.
