Hawker / Martyn Sports afternoon

This year our whole school Sports afternoon was a close fought battle between our two School Sports teams of Hawker and Martyn. Both teams had very encouraging and supportive Captains and Vice-captains. Hawker were the winners this year. Well done to everyone who took part.

500 words - National Competition Final

One of our amazing children, Livvie, has got through to the National Finals of this competition. The final was held at Hampton Court on Friday 8th June. She  won an all expenses paid trip to the awards ceremony for herself and her family!

One of our other entries was lucky to win tickets to the event too.

Although she didn't win any of the top three awards she did succeed in getting into the last 25 for her age group. This is a fantastic achievement. We are so proud of her.

Healthy Schools Poster competition

All the children in Class 1 entered the Cornwall Healthy School Poster competition recently and we are pleased to let everyone know that 3 of our children have been shortlisted.

They are  Chloe, Archie and Harry. We look forward to hearing what the final results will be.

                                   Some talented young designers of the future!


Bude Area Sports

Bude Area sports was held on Tuesday 5th June and we were well represented by some very enthusiastic, competitive pupils. After all the heats were completed these were our results.

1500 metres         -         1st place            Livvie

1500 metres         -         2nd place          Jared 

Vortex throw         -         2nd place           Jake

100 metres           -         3rd place            Ellie


It's so good to see that their after school training with Mr Hodgson has been helpful to the children.


Bude Community Trust 

We are so thrilled for 2 of our students, who were entered for the Bude Community Trust 500 word story competition, as they have been judged 2nd and 3rd in the area competition.


500 word story competition

Schools in the area were only allowed a limited number of entries (we were only allowed 2) and so we are delighted to have won these awards.

All of the pupils in Class 1 entered their stories into the BBC 500 word competition and their stories have been put together into a lovely story book for our library. So please pop in and read some of their stories if you have time.

Urgent funds are still needed.

Sadly the situation in Eldoret, Kenya are still very difficult and they are still desperately in need of our help. There is a terrible drought in the Turkana desert region, where many of the children who attend our school come from. Animals, elderly people and young ones are perishing every day. They are still in need of our help in the form of an emergency appeal. If we can quickly raise some funds they can buy food in Eldoret and distribute it to the families in the area. 

There are several ways you can make donations. Through our school, via their website or directly into their bank account via BACS.

Operation Encompass

Recently, Cornwall Police began to work with schools in Cornwall by letting the school know, before 9am the following school morning, if there has been a callout to a domestic abuse report at the home of one of their pupils at any time in the past 24 hours (or during a weekend or holiday). This is to enable us to support the child in school and to be aware that it is likely they have had a disturbed night. We would then follow our usual safeguarding procedures as appropriate.
