Day of Action for Climate Change Parents and pupils may be aware that Friday 20th September will mark another day of global action and protest, to raise awareness and understanding of the many complex issues surrounding global Climate Change. Kernow Learning Trust recognises the vital importance of educating our pupils about the developing climate emergency, and have committed as a Trust to ensuring that all of our schools work to ensure that our pupils know that they are Global Citizens with a responsibility for our global environment. Every school in the Trust has a ‘Global Learning’ Leader and all schools are currently engaging in training to deliver ‘Global Learning’ to their staff. We cannot encourage pupils to be absent from school on this Friday, due to our duty of care for our pupils, but we have decided to enable pupils to show their solidarity with the Climate Change movement through a series of initiatives in our schools in the forthcoming weeks and months ahead. Our schools will teach more about the challenges that we face through issues such as plastic pollution, recycling and saving energy. We are very proud to have Eden as a member of our Trust and so consideration of the challenges that will face our children’s generation, and how they can influence future developments through their actions is never far from our Trust discussions.

Home & Academy Agreement

At St Columb Major Academy we continue to build a strong partnership between staff, parents and carers - we all feel this is important in helping pupils to achieve and to enjoy their learning.  We like to create an environment where children will be challenged in their thinking, to achieve to the best of their abilities and strive to become lifelong learners.
This can be carried out most effectively when all staff, parents and pupils understand their responsibilities and work together towards the same goals, as detailed in our Home School Agreement.
We would like to ensure that we all (school, parents & pupils) sign the appropriate declarations to indicate that we all understand and accept the contents of the home-academy agreement.
