Dear Parents/Carers

At this very difficult and unprecedented time, we believe it is important to keep in contact with you and provide as much support as possible.  We are mindful that this is already a stressful time for you all and we do not want to be adding to anyone’s current situation.  However, we believe it is important to put some structure into your days and support your children with their educational journey.  It is also important that you all look after each other and are mindful of your own, and others, mental wellbeing.

So, here is our plan at Camelford Primary School.  We have tried to make it as supportive as possible without overloading you at home:

We want you to be able to contact us to be able to ask for advice, not only regarding the learning you will be supporting your child with at home, but also for any support that you may need. 

So, we have decided to set up 5 new email addresses.  These are hopefully being set up today and once we have confirmation that they are set up, we will add them to the website.

You or your child may have questions to ask us or you may want to share your child’s learning with us through photographs, videos or attaching work.  We may decide to upload and share any learning on our school website and Facebook page, so please remember to put in the email if you don’t want this to happen.

For the forthcoming week, there are plenty of home learning ideas on the website for you to access or you may have your own ideas for projects you’d like to set your child.  We have also added a list of websites and resources which may support you and your child/children.

After Easter (week beginning 13th April), the following will happen:

  • Each week, each phase will post a list of what they would like your child to complete over the week.  This will be added to the school website each Friday by 9am, allowing you preparation time and time to ask teachers any necessary questions before Monday.
  • We will set optional weekly whole school challenges/projects.  These will be added to the website (Projects and Challenges) and the School Facebook Page.  You may want to share your child’s involvements in these projects by emailing the appropriate phase email.

 

 

Email Addresses

Please use the email address below if you need to get in contact with a member of staff in school:

Welcome- We hope you enjoy exploring our website which will give you a glimpse of what makes us special.

I am delighted to welcome you to our school.  There is something very special about Camelford and we are incredibly proud of the place where every person matters!

 

At Camelford, we strive to ensure that every child achieves their full potential and is prepared for the next phase of their education.  We are driven to ensure that we teach our children the value of our community, the environment, each other and learning.  We hope our pupils look back on their time with us and remember it as a place where they were valued.  We work tirelessly to ensure our pupils leave us confident, proud and ambitious.  We hope our 3 school promises, 'We are Safe', 'We are Ready' and 'We are Respectful' develop in our learners a sense of belonging and a respect for community and each other. 

 

Our children are wonderful ambassadors, so if you would like to know more about our school family, our children and I would be delighted to show you around and introduce you to everyone who makes Camelford such a special and incredible place.

 

Anne Howard, Headteacher

Welcome by Two of Our Pupils

Welcome to the Camelford School website.  On this website you can learn all about our amazing school and see what exciting activites your child is up to, whether it be an exciting activity or one of our many wonderful subjects. 

Our school is full of friendly faces, staff and pupils. We welcome anyone into the school with open arms. 

The classrooms are named after Cornish beaches; Daymer, Harlyn, Summerleaze, Trevone, Crackington, Lundy, Watergate, Port Isaac, Fistral, Tintagel, Bossiney and Polzeath.  The school is separated into two main buildings; one is Year 5 & 6 and the other is for the Nursery all the way through to Year 4. We display our learning on the walls, making them bright, colourful and helpful.

Children are challenged in all subjects, including fluency and 99 club in maths and word challenges in English. In this school, our learning is fun and engaging. 

Your child can enter various different clubs such as: touch rugby, exciting writing, taekwondo, choir, athletics and many more!

We have a reward system where pupils are given green cards for fantastic learning, behaviour and attitude. The yellow and red cards are awarded if children are not displaying our three school promises consistently. These promises are as follows: We are safe, we are ready and we are respectful.

This year, we have a big focus on reading. We have been set a challenge to read at least 150 times over the year! Every time we read 10 times and get a signature, we will receive a sticker that shows a popular book cover! The race is on!

We hope you love our school as much as we do!

Kiya & Quinn - Year 6 

 

Aspirations Day- Raising our Children's Dreams for the Future

We had a brilliant Aspirations day last week where the children came dressed as their future potential careers. We had quite a selection including a hair stylist, police officer, BMX stunt rider, paediatric doctor, artist, surgeon, rock star, you tuber, astronaut, boxer, archaeologist, to name just a few. We also had some brilliant sessions with the fire brigade, a counsellor, a chairman of a charity, a travelling musician, a personal trainer,a baker, a hair stylist, and ex members of the army and navy. They talked a little about their jobs and what they enjoyed about it and also talked about what their future income might be! Thank you to everyone who gave up their time to inspire our children. Look out for future careers days coming up
