Week ending 9th July 2021

Another busy week draws to a close. On Monday morning it was lovely to see the children spend some time in their new classes, getting to know their teachers and classrooms a little better- they seemed very excited and happy. 
Tuesday saw a well-being day - organised by Mr. Clatworthy and Arena staff. I witnessed some great team building games taking place - some of them involving the transportation of water- luckily it seemed that no-one got particularly wet!
We rounded the week off on Friday with an amazing beach trip to Looe with Harlyn Bay class. It was slightly cloudy, but that didn't dampen the children's enthusiasm and they had a fantastic time playing in the sand and jumping over the waves. It was also lovely to hear that a member of the public commented on how fantastically well-behaved the had been!

Have a great weekend ....fingers crossed for a win on Sunday - the last time that happened was the year in which I was born!!

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.
