Easter update

Week Beginning 30 March 2020

Dear parents/carers,

We made it to the end of term! A very odd end of term, and not one that I think any of us have ever seen the likes of, but despite all of the challenges, one that I think we all actually handled very well.  Thank you so very much for all of the positive feedback that you have given either through email or via the Facebook page; it has helped us all know that whilst we are not seeing you, we know that you are out there and still very much connected. We miss you all!


Easter Holidays

Please remember that we do not expect for you or your children to try and complete any of the set tasks or carry on with structured learning over the Easter Holidays (although we will not of course stop you!). We worked every hard all of last term – right up until the last minute of the last day, and so we completely understand that we all need a break. Do enjoy the time and (I want to say) the sunshine!


What happens on 14 April when the Summer Term starts? 

We expect home learning to start again on Tuesday 14 April. Monday 13 April is Easter Monday and our term starts the day after this. We will be uploading all of the work set for each year group for the week beginning 14 April at the beginning of that week (ready to start on Tuesday 14 April), but if you have any trouble accessing any work at all, please do let us know via the secretary inbox (, and do please post on Facebook or send us in your completed work, activities or projects. We will make sure that the teachers get them!

Key-workers and Vulnerable Children:
Wadebridge Primary Academy is open to Key-Workers and vulnerable children over the Easter Holiday too. If you need for us to look after your children during school hours over the holiday, please do let us know as your children will always be welcome.

Useful Contact Numbers

Wadebridge Town has put together a really useful list of local numbers and contacts – the list is also on Facebook and the website but please find it attached to this blog. If you know of any other websites or details of local businesses that are offering support at this time and you think that that other parents and carers may find useful, please do let us know; everything is useful at this stage!

Keep in touch and stay safe and well. We are so looking forward to seeing you all again soon.

Ms R Whitlock.

Welcome to Wadebridge Primary Academy’s website. We aim to deliver a professional, media rich information and communication portal for all stakeholders needs. We encourage you to peruse the site and welcome your feedback on all aspects of the site.

We are one of the largest primary schools in Cornwall with 16 classes of children organised in a two form entry school from Nursery through to Year 6. There are 92 trained staff members who deliver exciting learning opportunities for children in all phases. We have a well resourced and organised school. All classes have access to an additional work space for creative arts, technology and withdrawal groups. In addition to this we have a huge school hall and stage area.

At the back of this is our on-site kitchen where all our meals are cooked. We have a large two-story Library, separate ICT suite, a well equipped technology room, conference room, resource room, staff room, Teachers’ planning area and associated office space not to mention our fabulous outside areas! This is a school with space and creative opportunities to fill that space!

We are committed to developing all aspects of learning in the creative way to allow children to experience and consider art, dance, drama and digital media and learning outdoors. We offer wrap around care with our on-site club Bridge Kids. Here children are able to join our breakfast and after school facilities from 7.30am-6pm.

Friends of Wadebridge Primary are a well organised group of parents, grandparents and friends who help to organise additional community activities which raise money to provide some of the ‘extras’ our children enjoy including end of term treats, theatre visits, additional school trips and additional resources to use at playtimes.
