We are excited to have Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year 5 and Year 6 children back in school along with children of key workers and vulnerable families. We will update parents and carers as the situation changes.

Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope that you are all managing to enjoy the holidays so far. It has been so wonderful to see so many of you over the last few weeks and I cannot tell you how glad we were to be able to offer some time in school for all year groups who we were not able to welcome back on a regular basis this last half term. 
It was clear that all who had not been in school had an element of anxiety when coming through the car park gate, but it was also clear that this anxiety did not last long and in fact we saw the brightest smiles after a short time!  It was uplifting for the teachers too as of course they were really very keen to see their classes again. Thank you for helping us to make this happen. I hope too that it will help ease any worry about coming back in September. The main addition will be a plethora of cleaning products, safely stored and ready to use to ensure that everywhere is sanitised and cleaned regularly. As I said in my letter home last week, we will be focusing on the wellbeing of pupils, parents and staff as well as making sure that we are helping every pupil catch up where needed and be stretched where needed.  You have all been utter superstars over this last four months and your support and your usage of the website, tapestry in the Early Years and class pages in order to help your children learn has been pivotal to our feeling connected with you.  Whatever you have managed to do is enough.  Whatever ship you have been sailing on (and there will be very many different ships, all going at different speeds and in different seas), will end up at the school gates on Monday 7 September and we will take it from there.  
We say goodbye to just one teacher this Summer; Mrs Griffith; who worked in the Nursery for many years (and welcomed many of you into school), and then in Reception and Year 1.  She will be missed but we are so grateful for all that she has done for the school over the many years that she has been with us and wish her the very best for her future. 
Please do take the time to read the letter that I sent home last week regarding our September return and let me know if you have any questions as I am more than happy to help. Thank you for all of your positive comments so far; they are so appreciated.  
We cannot WAIT to see you in September. Take good care and stay safe. 
Kindest regards
Ms 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.
