Welcome to Lanivet School
Located in the heart of Lanivet, mid-Cornwall, Lanivet School is situated just off the A30 at the edge of Bodmin Moor in acres of beautiful countryside. The children learn in a welcoming safe, indoor and outdoor learning environment, which we keep improving with the help of our community. The school welcomes children aged four to eleven and all are taught in well-equipped classes with good staff/child ratios ensuring high levels of individual pastoral care. Our dedicated team of teachers are highly qualified and extremely motivated. They work well together and have high expectations for the children. The school is proud of its effective communication and partnership with parents, all of whom are invited to attend a variety of events including concerts, dramatic productions, sports matches, meetings and fund-raising events.
We work closely with our fantastic village pre-school, Lanivet Under Fives, who are situated next to our school. Several visits and excellent communication between the two settings ensure that we can best support our families and allow for a smooth transition into our school. You can get in touch with the pre-school via their Facebook page.
Taster sessions for children and family visits are offered prior to children joining us, before the application process at Cornwall Council- Together for Families.
At the end of Year 6 most pupils transfer to Bodmin College, whilst some pupils might join schools in Wadebridge, St Austell or further afield.
