Our Mission: Learning for Life through Love

Boskenwyn C P School was founded in 1877 to serve the local farming communities of three parishes. 

 The main granite building now houses the junior classroom, library and resources area, the offices and kitchen.  Meals are cooked on the premises to a high standard.  The Elliot Classroom adjacent to the main building provides a well appointed infants classroom.  The school has a large playground, school garden, and creative play area, along with a nearby school field.

 Most children come to school by car, but it is practical for some to walk or cycle to school.  We are investigating the possibility of a regular bus service passing the school, as well as cycle and footways, to make travel to school safer.  The villages of Gweek and Trewennack are one mile away, and Helston is about 2½ miles.

Children can begin school part time for 1 hour per week with their carer at age 3, gradually progressing to become full time pupils in the term in which they have their fifth birthday.  They then go through the school to the age of eleven, after which they usually transfer to Helston or Mullion Community Schools, depending on parents' preference and geographical location.

 The school recognises the benefits of being a small unit in which everybody respects others’ needs.  Staff, governors and parents work closely together to provide a happy environment for all, and this spills over into the attitudes of our children.  We also value working in a group of small primary schools called Helston Country Cluster which enables the children to come together for curriculum activities and social events.

School Aims

     The school aims to educate the whole child; develop lively, enquiring minds; provide a happy and secure learning environment; provide a broad, well balanced curriculum which, together with extra-curricular activities, prepares the pupil for a full life; create an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect in which the efforts of all are valued; match work to the child's level of development and understanding; encourage and expect the highest standards of achievement from its pupils.


Special Needs

 Children with Special Educational Needs (Coordinator - Mr. Corser).  The school recognises that some children are likely to have a special educational need at some stage of their school life.  Where a child is experiencing difficulty in any area of school, this will be discussed with the child's parents as soon as possible.  If necessary the school will seek support from other agencies and, working together with parents, will try to remedy the problem and provide appropriate support.  This sometimes requires a Statement of Special Educational Needs.

 Boskenwyn tries to make all children feel valued, irrespective of their problems or Special Needs.  It is a sign of the school's success in this area that children recognise each other's strengths and weaknesses and are willing to help each other when ever possible. (For more information please ask to see the school's policy statement on Special Educational Needs.)
