St Cleer Well Dressing 2024

Thank you so much to Cornwall Heritage Trust for including St Cleer Primary Academy in the St Cleer Well Dressing event this year. On Friday 3rd May in the Cornish sunshine, Year 5 paraded their well dressing art work; Reception presented their posies and Year 4 presented two of their Cornish dances for us all to enjoy. This year’s event is particularly significant as it celebrates the site’s removal from the Heritage at Risk Register in November 2023. Cornwall Heritage Trust CEO, Cathy Woolcock said: “We are absolutely thrilled that our interventions have saved St Cleer Holy Well and Cross from the Heritage at Risk Register, and the Well Dressing Ceremony is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate with the local community. We hope as many people as possible can come along!” Thought to date from the late 15th or early 16th century, St Cleer Holy Well is a Scheduled Monument and also Listed Grade One – a demarcation earned by only 2.5% of listed buildings and marking it out as nationally important.

St Cleer Primary Academy is set in a beautiful rural location with wonderful views of the Caradon hills. We have extensive school grounds including a large school field, an adventure playground, Forest School, gardening and environmental areas.

The school joined Bridge Schools Trust in 2018 and is working towards building capacity and ensuring that the children are given the very best educational offer.

All staff at St Cleer Primary Academy have high expectations of pupils and we believe in approaching teaching and learning in a holistic way. As well as developing children’s academic potential, we endeavour to support each child’s sporting, creative and artistic talents. The curriculum is enriched by after school provision, educational visits, a wealth of talented volunteers and a collaborative approach with the other schools in the trust. The school works in active partnership with parents and continues to build positive relationships with the wider community in which our children live.

Take a look at our school video to see what life at St Cleer is like for our children.

We are very proud of our St Cleer parent quotes.

The school goes above and beyond to make sure the children and parents at the school are happy.

Absolutely fantastic school!! Both my boys have learnt so much since starting last September.

My child goes to breakfast club and after school club daily because of my work. The people that work here are amazing.

I am really happy with the school. My children are so happy here. Their teachers have been fantastic. I would definitely recommend to others.
