Trenode is a small but growing primary school situated between Liskeard and Looe. Extensive grounds allow for a range of outdoor learning experiences; we also have spacious indoor facilities, including a music room. A nurturing, family ethos, in mixed-age classes, enables our pupils to be challenged as individuals.

‘Reach beyond your grasp’ is our motto at Trenode. We would like all children to aspire further than they think they can! We are on a ‘Visible Learning’ journey, with the other schools in Bridge Schools, which is empowering our pupils to be able to discuss their learning and progress, understanding their ‘next steps’.

Exploring Spirituality

Posted: 15/10/2019

We are spending a very thoughtful and reflective week this week, beginning to explore who we are as a school in more detail.  Our focus for the week is spirituality.  We know that spirituality can mean different things to different people and we have begun to think about what it means to us as a Church of England school in the context of celebrating God in all that we do.

The children have thought about how they think, how they reflect, how they like calm, peace and quiet in amongst their learning and activities.

We have been delighted to welcome Sean Hewitt to school this week.  Sean is a local abstract artist and the children are working with him to look at the art of Andrew Goldsworthy.  They are using this to create beautiful art work such as the circle of life art you can see here.

We can't wait to see what the finished product will look like by the end of the week.
