Nursery, Reception, Y1, Y2, Y3 and Y4 are based at Delaware. Y5 and Y6 are based at Gunnislake Primary Academy.
What a fantastic few weeks we have had since coming back from the Easter holidays. It has been so lovely to see the children settle back into their classroom routines and also, for some 'normal' activities starting up again- after school clubs and wrap around care provision.
I have also been delighted to see classes out and about on day trips to enrich their learning in the classroom.
Moving forward into the next few weeks we will be focussing on developing your children's reading skills. You may have heard them mention Clarissa the Clarifier cat, Quentin the Questioner Koala, Polly the Predictor Panda and Sid the Summariser squirrel! I will put the posters on this blog so that you can see the sorts of questions you can ask your children as they are reading. I hope that you find them useful . Have a great week!

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!
