Welcome to Padstow School

Padstow School is a relatively modern school building that provides excellent facilities for our students to explore, learn, play and develop. Our classrooms are light, airy and modern.  Brightly displayed and well-resourced, they provide an amazing learning environment in which high quality learning can take place.


We have mixed-age classes throughout the school, as follows: Puffin class is all of Reception year and half of Year 1; Kittiwake class has the other half of Year 1 and all of Year 2; Oystercatcher class has all of year 3 and half of Year 4; Cormorant class has the other half of Year 4 and the majority of Year 5; Curlew class has the remainder of Year 5 and all of Year 6. All our teachers are experienced in teaching to a mix of ages and abilities and the classrooms are all well-supported by our fantastic team of Teaching Assistants. We are also very lucky to have several additional learning spaces within the building allowing for small group, specialist teaching, etc.


In addition, we have exceptional outdoor spaces including a very large playing field and tarmac playground, as well as sensory garden, vegetable garden, willow walk and pond.  


The school has a committed and very active Parent, Teacher & Friends Association who raise funds for us.  The Padstow community is also very keen to support the school and between the PTFA fund raising events and the community, the school has been lucky enough to have 30 Chromebooks and a recharging trolley purchased for the children to use in their learning.

In September last year, an outdoor classroom was also built using the funds generated by our hard-working PTFA, our parents and the local community. This will be a wonderful asset for the school for many years to come and is used every day by classes during their outdoor learning or other ad-hoc sessions, such as our wonderful Year 6 Reading Champions holding 'story corner' sessions during lunchtime for the younger pupils to listen to them read.


We look forward to welcoming you!
