Welcome to Sithney School

Welcome to Sithney Community Primary School

Dear Parents and Visitors

My name is Mrs Linda May, and I am thrilled to be the Executive Headteacher of this school.  I am responsible for 5 closely located schools in the Helston area; all with a unique identity and yet shared desire to offer our children the best possible start to their educational journey.

I am ably supported by an experienced Senior Teacher who is our Head of School, and a dedicated and talented staff that have the same high expectations as you do for your child.  We believe in a close working relationship between teachers and parents is essential to success and we look forward to welcoming you to our many special events.

I firmly believe that every child deserves to have a happy and fulfilling primary education.  I also know that children learn best through an interesting and engaging curriculum.  Together, we will strive to make learning enjoyable, varied and challenging so that all children achieve well and are motivated to do their very best.

I look forward to our paths crossing and sharing some of the special moments in the life of our school.

Please browse our website for more information.

With all good wishes,

Mrs L May

We would like to welcome you to our school. We hope everything you need to know about our school is on this website but if you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Our small, rural school has approximately 80 pupils on roll and is situated just over a mile from the centre of Helston. We have a dedicated and enthusiastic team of friendly staff who have the interests of the pupils at the centre of all that they do.

The staff at Sithney work hard to ensure high standards in reading, writing and maths whilst maintaining a broad and balanced curriculum for all; work is themed to allow meaningful cross curricular links and the children enjoy a variety of class trips to support their learning. Behaviour and attitude to learning is a strength of the school and we are very proud of the academic, social and personal achievements of all the pupils. Outdoor Learning skills are taught across the school and our PE curriculum incorporates regular competitions and leagues across the MAT and the County.
