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.

A great start to the new term

We have had a wonderful start to the new school year, and it has been good to meet so many of you. I have been impressed by the children’s friendly and helpful behaviour; our Shining Star certificates were given out today for being a good friend and settling in well.

The Year One children painted landscapes for the story "We're Going on a Bear Hunt".

The Year 6 pupils are being given extra responsibilities around the school. Excellent speeches were given to the whole school by Year 6 children wishing to be voted by the other children in their House to become Team Captains.  We are pleased to congratulate:

Ella and Kristian as Puffin Team Captains
Izzie and Maddie as Swan Team Captains
Isla and Eddie as Chough Team Captains

Friday 20th September Jeans for Genes Day. Children can wear jeans on Friday 20th for a contribution of 50p to make a difference for children affected by genetic disorders.
