Launceston Primary School opened its' doors to pupils in Reception in September 2021 and is a two form entry school. When full, it will house 420 pupils from Reception to Y6. The school has been carefully designed by our Trust to ensure that the learning environment and layouts enable our rich and immersive curriculum and teaching ethos to be delivered. As our outside space grows and develops, the school will be surrounded by a beautiful woodland which over time will be designed by the founding cohorts of children who join us on this special and unique adventure.
Let the Adventure Begin
"All children have the right to a world class education which is rich in aspiration, experience, discovery, play and wonder - and that is what we deliver at Launceston Primary School.
Welcome from Mrs Kate Eyre, Principal
Pupils at Launceston Primary will be developed to be adept at understanding the world, be able to solve practical open-ended activities and embracing of creativity - or ‘tinkering’. Tinkering and purposeful ‘play’ is an essential and phenomenal life skill to equip children with, modelled via an engaging teaching approach and carefully crafted curriculum. Immersive learning and play are at the heart of our curriculum and ethos.
Time spent in nature and natural settings influences a child’s play, learning, holistic development and connections in and to the natural world. Regular opportunities for learning outdoors results in improved confidence, risk-taking opportunities, improved health, wellness and the developing seeds of environmental stewardship and reciprocity.
In addition, opening up a world of opportunity, exploration and experiences to children underpins our values and ethos; adventure at the core."
Our Vision & Mission
Our vision is that all pupils become successful, responsible, scholarly, adventurous and happy young people by learning the knowledge skills and values which are important for society.
Community, family and success for all lie at the heart of our vision - without exception. We are an ethical community, guided by our Eco School work, helping to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change.
We give everyone in our school family the chance to shape a better future for themselves, the community and the world. Our children grow into well-rounded pupils with a passion for life, a love of learning and a breadth of interests enabling adaptation to the fast changing world around them.
Our mission is for all of our children to delight in life experiences and achievement. We will focus on high academic achievement with an ethos of developing character and creativity in minds and hearts.
