Statement on the death of Her Majesty The Queen
It is with sadness that we have heard the news of the death of Her Majesty The Queen. We send our condolences to the royal family and remember her life-time contribution in service of this country.
The Trust will monitor guidance from the Department for Education with regards to arrangements for the funeral and all schools within the Trust have been requested to pause social media during the period of national mourning for the Queen's death.
We share this quote from a 14-year-old Princess Elizabeth, from her broadcast to the children of the Commonwealth in October 1940:
"And when peace comes, remember it will be for us, the children of today, to make the world of tomorrow a better and happier place"
Head Teacher's Welcome
At Mousehole School we aim to achieve a successful, happy, caring and stimulating environment where children are given the opportunity to reach their potential in all aspects of school life. We aim to make the best of every opportunity to develop confidence, respect and a love of learning in all members of the school community.
We are very proud of our record for good academic achievement in English and maths and for our passion for creating a varied and stimulating wider curriculum offer. We passionately believe that academic success begins with a safe, stimulating and varied school experience. We offer opportunities and learning experiences beyond the National Curriculum and beyond the classroom - more detail can be found on curriculum pages.
Our school calendar can now be found on the Events page and have a look at the Information pages for downloads of handy documents like timetables etc.
If you are a visitor and want to know more, please get in touch using the Contact page or better still make an appointment to meet us in person and have a look around the school.

The general duty is set out in Section 149 of the Equality Act 2010. In summary all public bodies and schools must have due regard to the need to:
- Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation.
- Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
- Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. Schools have a legal requirement to prepare and publish one or more specific and measurable equality objectives which will help them to further the three aims of the Equality Duty.
Our Equality objectives
- To promote cultural understanding and development through a rich range of experience, both in and beyond school
- To narrow the attainment gaps for disadvantaged pupils by the end of Key Stage 2
- To promote equality of engagement in wider and extra curricular activities for children from all socio-economic backgrounds
- To ensure all children have inclusive access to the Mousehole School Curriculum including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Mousehole Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website and is available from the school office.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism. Our prevent duty statement can be found on our policies page under information above
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs Sarah Trow (Headteacher).
Our Deputy DSL is Mrs Jo Atkinson (SENCO).
The governor with responsibility for safeguarding is Linda Hodgson.
Information about keeping children safe online can be found via the link at the bottom in the middle of this page.
We work closely with the Early Help Hub Cornwall. Follow the link to find out more.
