Welcome to St Erth School website.

Welcome to our school.

We are a village school which is proud to be part of the community of St Erth Parish.

At St Erth we value the well being of the children in our care above all else. We aim to create a happy, safe, caring environment in which every child can succeed and do their best. To this end we constantly strive to improve by keeping up to date with the very best ideas in teaching and learning and providing a fun place to learn. We have developed engaging and vibrant learning spaces indoors, outside and online to enhance our curriculum and provide children with a wide range of learning experiences. We make use of the unique landscape, culture and history of our local area to further enhance our curriculum offer as well as broadening horizons through residential trips to London and carefully planning diverse topics to study, for example. We intend for children to leave St Erth School being confident, aspirational and self-aware learners who, as well as being academically successful, are ready for the challenges of life. 

We know that strong and supportive relationships are the most important factor to a child's development. Our staff seek to understand and support each child as an individual, ensuring they feel valued and secure. Key to this is building a close working relationship with parents. We ensure our staff are highly visible and always available to discuss your child's learning, so we can work together to achieve the best possible outcomes for them. Parents are asked to work with us to achieve this by attending parent evenings, hearing your child read regularly and talking with them about what they do in school. 

I hope you enjoy finding out more about our wonderful school through our website. Please get in touch if you would like any further information.

This is a special year for us, as we celebrate 100 years.  The School was opened on 3 April 1922 and we want to mark the centenary with some special events - Covid permitting.  At this stage plans are very much at an early stage, but we are hoping to have a thanksgiving service in the village Church on Sunday, 3 April and then hold a celebratory event here at School on the following Saturday, 9 April.  All the children will be involved in both events.  The main event on 9 April will include an exhibition and display, telling the history of the School, and there will be entertainment and refreshments but, most importantly, the chance for current and former pupils, staff and friends of the School to get together and share their memories.  

Mrs Culmer, the School Secretary, has also been busy over the past year, piecing together the history of the School and her book, ‘One Hundred Years & Counting, A History of St Erth School: 1922 - 2022’ will be available to purchase nearer the time.  The book aims to raise funds for the School and will provide a comprehensive overview of all the events that took place at School, as well as those in the wider world that have shaped it.  Further details soon.

We sincerely hope that the whole community of St Erth and the school are able to come together  and celebrate the centenary. It has been more apparent than ever over the past 2 years of disruption by Covid, how integral a role the school plays in the whole community. Through her research for the book Mrs Culmer has been struck by the strong memories former pupils have of the school and their lasting affection for it. Please mark the dates in your diary, cross your fingers for good weather and come and join us at these special events.
