Week ending 17th September 2021

The first full week is complete and it has certainly been a busy one. The children are now well settled into their new classes and getting stuck into their learning. I have been very impressed with their learning behaviours.  There have been many Headteacher Awards this week - the treasure chest is almost empty and I only refilled it on Monday. Awards this week go out to Caiden, Ruby C, Alyssa, Eddie, Freddie, Isabelle D, Oli, Hugo, Tom D, Marley, Mikey, Jamie, Ellie, Eva, Una, Drazik, Rayne, Max, Isobel, Maria, Ross,  and Ivy-May - Wow how amazing!  (Sorry if I missed anyone- I will mention you next week)
The attendance prize this week goes to Year 4 with 100% attendance!
The schools are looking really lovely. Staff have worked hard to create some inviting learning environments and I wanted to share some photographs of them. Delaware base this week and Gunnislake next week.
Enjoy and have a fantastic weekend!

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.
