We are a happy, hard working and successful village school on the outskirts of Truro, serving the community of Trispen and St Erme and surrounding areas. We were rated by OFSTED in 2015 as consistently good, with outstanding behaviour and safety. Central to our school community is a very positive ethos of high academic standards, good behaviour and independent learning. Our children are happy and enthusiastic learners and achieve very well. We make our learning environments and our lessons engaging and fun and we have a thriving Early Years Foundation Stage Unit for children aged 3 to 5 with excellent indoor and outdoor learning facilities.
If you are considering a school place for your child and would like to come and look around during the school day, please contact us and I will be happy to show you around and answer any questions you may have. Alternatively, if there is any information you can’t find on our new website then please do get in touch by email or by phone.
We look forward to meeting you!
Mrs Julie Orrell Headteacher
OFSTED say....... Pupils at St Erme with Trispen achieve well. Parents are highly supportive of the school. Every parent would recommend the school and agrees that their child is happy. They greatly value the school’s caring and nurturing ethos. One parental comment, typical of many, stated, ‘My children look forward to going to school every day because the staff have done such a great job at making them feel noticed and valued.’ Many say that the school is ‘fantastic’, with several commenting on the interesting curriculum and the wide variety of clubs provided. Pupils enjoy school and, as a result, their attendance is good. Inspection evidence shows that pupils across the school behave well.
