|Cardinham is a small historic village on the southern slopes of Bodmin Moor, about four miles from Bodmin. The area is mainly |
agricultural, with a large Forestry
Commission woodland nearby. There are many signs of the village's importance as a Celtic settlement.
Cardinham School admits girls and boys from four to eleven years old. Our pupils come from a variety of moorland villages and hamlets within its designated catchment area, as well as from the town of Bodmin
itself and other neighbouring villages.
The school celebrated its centenary in 1982 and the original Victorian building still forms the main part of the school. We use the nearby parish hall for PE, dance and drama. The school has its own playing field a short distance from the main site, with good sports facilities.
Our school is linked to Nanstallon, St Wenn and Lanivet Primary Schools under the County's Small Schools Cluster Scheme. The LEA gives an additional grant to each cluster of small schools, allowing for the sharing and purchase of resources which may normally be beyond the means of an individual school.
Parents are welcome to visit the school at any time - we value our close relationship and believe that it is in the benefit of the
children for us to work together. Many
