Set in the centre of Cornwall, our small school caters for the children of the village of Lanivet, outlying farms and hamlets and children from larger towns who can benefit from the family atmosphere of which we are proud.
In 2005 we celebrated the centenary of the building of the school. Much has changed since opening with the Edwardian buildings extended to bring the school up to five classes in 2012, six in 2014 with a seventh classroom opened in 2016. Our extension, completed in 2001, gave us a large classroom, beautiful hall in which we hold school productions, disabled facilities, ICT suite and a state of the art kitchen. In 2007 the school funded a link corridor and extra classroom then in 2015 the school and Local Authority together funded a new two-storey block to include three new classrooms.
We pride ourselves on our involvement in the community involving activities in the church, chapel and local environment, concerts for our senior citizens, links with the Parish Council and Lanivet Charities and involving visiting guests in the children’s education. A highlight of the year is our annual pantomime performed by our KS2 children. So popular is it now that we have around 400 people attending the four performances.
Cardinham and Lanivet Schools (Wheal Prosper Federation) have joined the Truro & Penwith Academy Trust (TPAT) on the 1st of June 2018. The decision to join and the consultation period were in 2017 and we have been working with TPAT operationally since then, but we are now looking forward to working with our local hub schools Berrycoombe, Roche & St Dennis and our school improvement partners in Threemilestone and Chacewater in an official capacity. We believe that this partnership will give us the support we need to raise standards and continue to improve the outcomes and experiences for our pupils.
We have a child-centered approach to education in which the child’s needs are placed first and we concentrate on raising the self-confidence and motivation of each child to do well. Our behaviour management is based on emphasizing the positive and drawing attention to what children are doing well, not on criticizing their faults. We follow the motto, ‘treat children as they might become, not as they are’
