Mawnan C of E V A Primary School has been providing education for the children of the Mawnan Smith area since 1834. The school aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum founded on Christian values.
The education offered at this school will be concerned not only with the teaching of basic academic, social and physical skills but also with furnishing our children with an inquiring, creative and sensitive approach to life. The children will also have the opportunity to develop spiritually and emotionally within the ethos of a church school.
Children are individuals with differing needs, interests, attitudes and talents. The School will endeavour to awaken the children’s curiosity about the wider world and develop their respect for diversity. They will be encouraged to develop their potential so that they may be able to contribute positively to society for the mutual benefit of all, as well as seeking personal fulfilment and reward.
The staff and governors will continue to work together to provide a sound education in a caring atmosphere (where the wellbeing of the child is paramount) and in doing this consider partnership with parents to be essential. The school has a close relationship with the local Church and Diocese and will continue to be involved in the life of the community.
