If your child is displaying symptoms of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) it is important that you let the school know as soon as possible. Please contact the school office on 01637 873958. Should you need to report this to us outside of normal school hours, you can complete a secure report form on our website and a member of staff will make contact with you as soon as possible. Visit our website: scminor@kernowlearning.co.uk Please note: Our till system has been down since the beginning of term. This means that your child's meals are not showing on ParentPay. These will be added and charged in due course so please ensure there are sufficient funds on your child's account to cover any meals already taken and any to be taken in the coming week. Thank you.

School Curriculum

At St Columb Minor ACE Academy we adopt the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).

The IPC has been designed to ensure rigorous learning but also to help teachers make all learning exciting, active and meaningful for children. Learning with the IPC takes a global approach; helping children to connect their learning to where they are living now as well as looking at the learning from the perspective of other people in other countries. The IPC is used by schools in more than 92 countries around the world.

The IPC has been successfully supporting schools to achieve the outcomes of the National Curriculum for over a decade and has been adapted to fulfil the requirements of the new curriculum 2014. ​

As a Trust, we believe that learning is like overlapping waves: A gradual ebbing and flowing of the frequencies of alternative ways of thinking, with new approaches being added and old ones being eliminated as well. New rules / strategies / theories and ways of thinking wash through our minds like waves sometimes obliterating what was there before, sometimes pushing suddenly forward in great surges.
If you would like more information on the curriculum please email - secretary@st-columb-minor.cornwall.sch.uk or ask at school reception.
