Welcome back to all of our pupils. Nursery, Reception, Y1, Y2 , Y3 and Y4 will be taught at the Delaware base. Y5 and Y6 will be taught at the Gunnislake base.
Welcome back! I hope that you all had a lovely time with your families over the festive period. It was lovely to see all of the children once again this week but I think that I speak for everyone when I say that we were all glad that it was a short week as everyone was a little tired after the holidays.
I want to say a big 'thank you' to pupils from Year 5 who created a lovely animation demonstrating one of the Trust's values of excellence. The animations were then shared this afternoon via a Teams meeting with all of the other Trust schools- what a lovely event.
Today marks the last day before Miss Hambly officially starts her maternity leave. I know that you will join me in wishing her the very best. I thought that you might like to see a picture of her and her leaving gifts (which we shared with her on the last day of term.) Have great weekend - see you all next week. The half termly newsletter will be sent to you next week.

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 9am – 3pm 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!
