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 child 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!

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
