One of Cornwall’s smallest village Schools, Trewidland near Liskeard, has received a glowing Report by Ofsted Inspectors. They visited the school on 15th September and their Report has just been released saying the school is Good, stating that the pupils ‘ say their School feels like one big happy family’. 

The Chair of School Governors, Gary Powell-Jones said: “We are all delighted by the way the Inspectors recognised the quality of education our children receive. As a Parent Governor I fully agree with their comment that ‘Parents recognise that their children are valued members of this warm, welcoming community’ “

The Head, Vyv Lovell, has written to all parents with a copy of the Report and says he is delighted that the school is judged to ‘have secured a unique, safe and treasured education for pupils.’ He has thanked all the Staff, Parents and Governors, as well as SMART, the local multi-academy trust which oversees the school.

Trewidland School at present has twenty-five pupils from the rural areas near St Keyne and Trewidland although an increasing number of pupils come from Liskeard and other elsewhere.  Mr Lovell explained that ‘Many parents look for a secure and safe environment for their children – being small means everyone knows each other well and look after each other. Some children do not thrive in large Schools, and we believe we provide something unique in this area.’
