St Keverne Primary School is located in the thriving village of St Keverne, on the Lizard peninsula. The two buildings which make up the school cover an extensive site, including a large sports field and hard play areas. There is also a large hall, reception area and school kitchen – school meals being cooked on the premises.
St Keverne is the largest village in the Helford area and somewhat unusual (for Cornwall) in that it is clustered around a central square. This attractive square contains a number of shops, 2 pubs, a handful of cottages and is overlooked by the church of St Akeveranus.
WELCOME TO ST KEVERNE SCHOOL - MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD
I am very proud to be the Executive Headteacher of St Keverne Primary and part of Southerly Point Cooperative Multi-Academy Trust. St Keverne has a very special school family which is integral to the St Keverne community. We embrace the Trust values of Self-help, Self-responsibility, Democracy, Equality, Equity, Solidarity, Openness, Honesty, Social Responsibility and Caring for Others.
Our highly talented teaching staff are ambitious for every child in their care and bring excellence and enjoyment together to the classroom. We know that children learn best when they are excited and engaged, so we have created a curriculum which does just that. The excellent teaching challenges the children and shows them what they can achieve. We place great emphasis on developing strong relationships with all our children, parents and carers, along with our local and wider community, to provide the best possible outcomes for our children. My door is always open to parents, carers, prospective parents and, of course, to our children. As a school we value all feedback and believe that the best way for our children to succeed is by everyone working together. If you would like to arrange a visit, please call or email our school secretary and I will be happy to welcome you to our school. In the meantime,
I hope that you enjoy looking at our website. Headteacher Lisa Woodhouse
On Thursday 24th March 2022, we were fortunate to have the Hawks of 736 Squadron conduct two fly overs of the school as part of their retirement tour of Cornwall. The Hawks have been part of our lives in Cornwall for nearly 30 years! It was fantastic of RNAS Culdrose to agree this change to their planned route and allowed the children to take a part of local history being made.
Thank you to all the parents and children for staying after school. A huge thank you must also be made to RNAS Culdrose and the 736 Squadron pilots for making this possible!
The event is mentioned on the RNAS Culdrose Facebook page. Do take a look.
