Despite the school being open to Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 pupils only, due to Covid-19, we are working hard to ensure that all pupils continue to experience an enriching and fulfilling St Ives curriculum.  This aims to continue pupils’ progress, consolidate their prior learning and help them remain healthy, both physically and mentally. It is also extremely important to us that our pupils and parents continue to feel a part of the St Ives community so that we can stay “Together Whilst Apart”.
