A word from the Principal...


Welcome to the last newsletter of the year! Again, it’s been quite a year but thanks to the way in

which we live out our values – look what we have achieved. After a time of such ups and downs for

us all, it’s vital that we stop and reflect on the successes. Our children have been at school for the

longest time in 18 months. For us, being happy, healthy, learning, laughing and loving is key – they

have shown all of these things and they are successes that we should all be proud of.

It’s been another year of changes for us all and our School and Trust have had to move quickly and

put in some changes and make decisions that we know haven’t always worked for everyone, but I

trust that you know that every decision we make is with our children at the heart. Thank you for the

patience, understanding and support you have shown.

We have ended the year with some lovely events and whilst we haven’t been able to welcome audiences

and crowds to our Sports Days and Leavers’ Assembly, the children still got to experience

these events, even if there weren’t in the format we would have liked. Our classes have also spent

time with their teachers and support staff for next year during our transition events and we have

welcomed our new reception class into school as well, so that they are familiar with the surroundings

ready for September.

It has been lovely to welcome our new intake into Ludgvan School, but we also have to say goodbye

to two members of staff. Miss Williams and Miss Steiner are both leaving Ludgvan, but the exciting

news is that they are both about to start a new chapter in their career. From September, they will

both be starting their teacher training, so we may see them again soon which is brilliant news!

Have a super summer and we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 8th September.

Kind regards,

Mr Adam Anderson

From next year, we will be making a slight tweak to our uniform expectations. Because

children wearing their PE kit to school has resulted in much less PE time being

lost to changing, lost PE kit etc, we will be continuing with this next year. We will

also be increasing the profile of our farm learning and forest school provision, both of

which will be led by Mr Richards. We appreciate that for days that your children will

be doing much of their learning outside, with a greater likelihood of getting muddy

etc, our traditional uniform may not be the best option. Therefore, our uniform expectations

from September, will be as follows:

Normal School Days

PE Days

Forest School/ Farm


Ludgvan School sweatshirt/cardigan

White Polo shirt (with or without logo)

Grey trousers/shorts/skirt/dress

Blue/White gingham dress

Black shoes

Ludgvan School sweatshirt/cardigan or hoodie

Ludgvan School PE t-shirt (in team colour)

Black shorts/jogging bottoms (with or without school logo)

Trainers (not plimsolls)

Black shorts/jogging bottoms (with or without school logo)
