Our Junior playground has lots of different areas. The Year 6 children recently painted our ‘bike shed’ area – a colourful, fun place to play.

Our Infant playground is a child friendly, happy place to play. The Reception children made the big spider during our recent Arts Week.

About Us

We moved into the new school in September 2000 and we began to rapidly develop our high-quality learning environment. We now have improved facilities and resources and we are providing all children with an even better standard of education and range of opportunities.

During 2003 the school expanded further. Two more classrooms were built along with additional toilets, cloakrooms and outside class work areas. Our capacity will rise to 300 pupils. More pupils means more staff, both teachers and teaching assistants.

We have now drawn up plans to provide us with additional group working spaces and IT facilities. In addition plans are being finalised to develop both a Children’s Centre and a new Nursery on site. As a school we continue to work hard to provide an exciting and engaging curriculum for our children. We provide them all with an extensive range of visits and visitors each year.

Aims of the School

At Holsworthy Primary School we value excellence of achievement, a happy atmosphere and a close relationship with parents and the community. Children have the opportunity to achieve their individual potential within this atmosphere academically, physically and socially.

The school provides a balanced and broadly based curriculum which:-

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and in society, and
  • prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

The school believes that the curriculum should help all pupils:

  • to develop lively, enquiring minds together with a positive wish to learn, to question and to argue rationally, and to apply themselves intelligently to tasks;
  • to develop positive qualities of human feeling and imagination, and an appreciation of human achievement and endeavour;
  • to experience the satisfactions of creativity;
  • to acquire knowledge and skills relevant in a changing world to their adult lives at work and at leisure;
  • to respect the religious, spiritual and moral values of others, and to consider thoughtfully their own attitudes, values and beliefs;
  • to understand the history and present condition of their own society and the world in which they live, and the interdependence of individuals, groups and nations;
  • to develop a sense of self-respect and individual worth, a capacity to live as independent, self-motivated adults, and the ability to live and work in co-operation with others.


Summer term is a very busy time in our school.  Many classes were involved in outdoor activities, some in sponsored events, and all of us enjoyed our Arts Week.  

Please visit our ‘Classes’ section to see what we have been up to!

Year R/1 - Launceston Castle

Some of the infants went on a trip to Lauceston Castle.  They were then inspired to make some castles of their own from foam blocks.  Here you can see the infants exploring the medieval fire.




Year 3 - Caring for our Environment

The children in Year 3 have been involved in a recycling project.  We had a visit from Mrs Recycle, who explained how our landfill sites are becoming too full.  She taught the children about the 3 main features of saving our environment – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.  Global Action Plan came to school and did a waste audit.  Children weighed the rubbish they found in the school bins and have found ways to reduce,  reuse and recycle the schools waste. During Arts Week the Year 3 children made a junk band out of recycled materials.



Year 3 – 4 - Jump Rope for Heart

As part of our daily exercise programme, the children in Year 3 – 4 have been learning to skip.  On June 7th during Help a Heart Week, the children from this class took part in a sponsored skip event.  They were raising money for the British Heart Foundation and managed to raise a total of £270.  The school was able to keep 25% of the money raised and the children are delighted that they now have some wet playtime equipment.   Well done to all the children who worked really hard and all the friends and families who supported them


Year 4 - The day the tractor came to school


One of our school governors brought a tractor to school for year 4 to explore and learn about.  We had a great afternoon.  We learned about all the jobs that tractors do – ploughing, sowing seeds, pulling vehicles, lifting  and digging, not just on farms but on building sites, on the roads and even at the football stadium!

Year 5

This term the children in Year 5 have taken part in Canoeing and problem solving activities with Shoreline in Bude.  All had a great time, as you can see in the photos, but many got very wet!


Year 6

Each year the children in Year 6 go camping at Tamar Lakes and learn how to sail and windsurf.  The camp is designed to enable children to try out new skills, whilst asserting their independence.  They all enjoy a barbeque, play lots of team games and take part in a late night wild life walk.  As you can see from the photographs, they all have a fantastic time!
