Ethos & Values

At Cardinham Primary School, we encourage children to:

‘Grow your mind; aim high’

Set in the centre of Cornwall, our small school caters for the children of the village of Cardinham, outlying farms and hamlets and children from larger towns who can benefit from the friendly, caring, nurturing and family atmosphere of which we are proud.

We pride ourselves on our involvement in the community.  The Parish Hall is used on a regular basis for our annual summer performance and Key Stage 1 nativity.  The Church is used for Harvest festival and Christmas concerts.

The beautiful Cardinham Woods are within safe walking distance from our school and we aim to utilise the outdoors at every given opportunity.

Our behaviour management is based on emphasising the positive and drawing attention to what children are doing well, not on criticising their faults.  We follow the message, ‘treat children as they might become, not as they are’.

At the heart of our school, we have three rules:
