Camelford Primary School
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
Our school is very welcoming. Staff and pupils are kind, helpful and friendly.
Our classrooms are named after Cornish beaches; Daymer, Harlyn, Summerleaze, Trevone, Crackington, Lundy, Watergate, Port Isaac, Fistral, Tintagel and Bossiney. We display our learning on the walls, making them bright, colourful and helpful.
Our cook is friendly and makes delicious lunches. The food choices are vegetarian, meat or jacket potato. The desserts are scrumptious and fruit salad is always available.
Playtimes are filled with fun. Each class has a sheltered area of their own, which has a bench for quiet time. There is a wide variety of equipment that we can use at lunchtimes. Markings on the playground floor includes alphabet and number caterpillars, chess and draught squares and a number square.
Classes take it in turns to play football. If it is dry, children get to play on the field. In wet weather, we have indoor activities in the classrooms.
We have a number of different assemblies; praise, singing and class.
We hope you love our school as much as we do!
