Whilst the school was closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we worked hard to ensure that all pupils continued to experience an enriching and fulfilling St Ives curriculum.  This aimed to continue pupils’ progress, consolidate their prior learning and help them remain healthy, both physically and mentally. It was also extremely important to us that our pupils and parents continued to feel a part of the St Ives community so that we could stay “Together Whilst Apart”.
