Week ending 15th October 2021

It has been great to have a member of the local Parish Council Mrs Boreham, visit Y4 at the Delaware base this week. She is part of the committee for 'A Forest For Calstock' group who will be planting trees in the locality. The Y3 and Y4 pupils will be involved in this as part of their learning about the environment next term.
Headteacher awards this week go to Flo, Imogen T, Franklin, Hugo, Zrazik, Luke and Eva. 
The highest attendance class this week is Polzeath Year 4- well done!
Also, a big well done to Zack who won a second place in the Callington Honey Fair art competition. His picture is below- isn't it fantastic!?
We will be holding a 'virtual' Harvest Festival next week- look out for videos of your children singing harvest songs on SeeSaw and Facebook (if you have given permission for these platforms to feature your children.) We would appreciate any donations of dried or tinned goods which will be distributed to the local food bank in Callington. Please send in anything which you can spare next week- thank you in advance!

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.
