Head's Blog

Week ending 5th January 2024

Welcome back! I hope that you all had a lovely time with your families over the festive period. It was lovely to see all of the children once again this week but I think that I speak for everyone when I say that we were all glad that it was a short week as everyone was a little tired after the holidays.
I want to say a big 'thank you' to pupils from Year 5 who created a lovely animation demonstrating one of the Trust's values of excellence. The animations were then shared this afternoon via a Teams meeting with all of the other Trust schools- what a lovely event.
Today marks the last day before Miss Hambly officially starts her maternity leave. I know that you will join me in wishing her the very best. I thought that you might like to see a picture of her and her leaving gifts (which we shared with her on the last day of term.) Have great weekend - see you all next week. The half termly newsletter will be sent to you next 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 Cox - Headteacher.
