Welcome to Cape Cornwall School
We are a small school with big ambitions - committed to:
- Maintaining small class sizes that ensure each student receives personalised, individual support in order to learn
- A curriculum that matches our students’ needs and aspirations
- The relentless pursuit of high expectations where all successes are celebrated
- Supporting families who would like their child to experience a family oriented approach in a small school
At Cape Cornwall School, we believe that every child matters. Our student focused approach is central to our ethos, values and our learning culture. The support we offer has even funded transport for some students, so that they may attend this very nurturing school (please contact Mrs Maria Wilkinson, senior leader, for further details of how we might be able to help).
New School Attendance Legislation
Excellent attendance is vital to succeeding at school. If a child has an 80% attendance rate, this means that over 5 years that child has missed one whole year of school. This will have a hugely negative impact on that child's life chances.
From September 1 2013 new legislation came into effect. You can read more about this in the Abridged Cornwall County Document below. Under the new legislation, requests to take a child out of school during term time can only be granted by the Headteacher in exceptional circumstances. You can access a form for an exceptinal circumstances request below and from the School Information section of this website. Please also look at the PowerPoint presentation below.
