All Bridge Schools are now closed. Delaware will provide a 'Hub service' for Gunnislake children who are children of key workers and vulnerable groups.

Week ending 12/2/21

Well that's the first week with everyone safely back in school completed! It was an absolute joy to see all of your and your children's faces on Monday. The children have been really excited to be back and have been brilliant at returning to the regular hand washing rituals and keeping in separate bubbles at play and lunch times. All staff who come into contact with the children are taking twice weekly COVID 19 tests to ensure that the school is as safe as possible for all concerned.
Thank you for continuing to minimise the number of adults on the school premises at drop off and pick up times and by wearing face coverings in the playground - your cooperation is much appreciated. Let's all hope and pray that there will be no more lockdowns and that things can start to get back to some sort of 'normal'!

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.
