Week ending 9th July 2021

Another busy week draws to a close. On Monday morning it was lovely to see the children spend some time in their new classes, getting to know their teachers and classrooms a little better- they seemed very excited and happy. 
Tuesday saw a well-being day - organised by Mr. Clatworthy and Arena staff. I witnessed some great team building games taking place - some of them involving the transportation of water- luckily it seemed that no-one got particularly wet!
We rounded the week off on Friday with an amazing beach trip to Looe with Harlyn Bay class. It was slightly cloudy, but that didn't dampen the children's enthusiasm and they had a great time playing in the sand and jumping over the waves. It was also lovely to hear that a member of the public commented on how fantastically well-behaved the had been!

Have a great weekend ....fingers crossed for a win on Sunday - the last time that happened was the year in which I was born!!

Welcome


It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website. We hope that you will enjoy the opportunity to discover more about our school, nursery, wonderful staff and amazing children!

At Delaware we strive, in partnership with parents and carers, to offer our pupils a high standard of education which will help each child to reach their full potential. Our aim is to nurture the children in our care, providing them with safe but exciting environments and opportunities where they can develop a life-long love of learning. Our learning environments are bright, colourful and interactive and the pupils at Delaware are proud to share their learning and achievements. We accept children from aged 2 upwards. We have a beautiful nursery open from 7.15am – 6.00pm with funded/non funded sessions available.

Our school motto is summed up in three simple words which came about following discussions with the children about their learning. These are: Believe. Achieve. Enjoy. They sum up perfectly the positive mindset which we pride ourselves on- 'I can't do it' is NOT accepted at Delaware- it is corrected to 'I can't do it - YET!'

Learning at Delaware is FUN! We plan for rich and memorable learning opportunities for our pupils and work in close partnership with other schools in our neighbourhood and our Bridge family of schools. We became a part of the Bridge Schools Trust in December 2015 and are embracing the additional learning opportunities that this has provided.

We have developed ways of working so that there is a consistent approach across all classes. Please take a moment to read our GOOD Ofsted report from September 2018. My favourite quote is “Pupils love to learn and are truly valued at Delaware Primary Academy”.

We pride ourselves on being a happy, inclusive school- please visit to see what we have to offer you and your children. You are sure to receive a warm welcome!
