About St Martin's CofE Primary School

St Martin’s is a friendly, caring and welcoming Church of England School based in the South East Cornwall Town of Liskeard. Liskeard is located on the southern edge of Bodmin Moor and is just a few miles from the Cornish coast. Cornwall is a delightful place to live, grow up and work as well as being part of a local community.

The school has a strong christian ethos and we are proud of our school’s role in helping children excel, grow their special gifts, build their confidence and achieve their full potential.

St Martin’s last full Ofsted inspection was in May 2019 when the school was judged to ‘require improvement’. We are anticipating a re-inspection by Ofsted before the end of the 2021-22 academic year.

The school is on a rapid journey of improvement and we are committed to ensuring that this momentum is continued.

We are now seeking a new Headteacher to lead us on the next stages of our journey and to provide stability and direction.
