Making Memories, Nurturing Confidence, Inspiring Ambition for a Bright Future

Welcome to Jacobstow Community Academy! We are delighted that you are considering joining our school family and we would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to the Learning Academy Partnership. We are really looking forward to working in partnership with you to ensure that your child has the best possible start to their primary education.

If you are interested in your child joining our academy, please contact us to discuss what we have to offer and to arrange a visit if you can on 01840 230337 or email [email protected].

Once you decide you would like a place you must make a formal application.

How to apply

Most children join our academy at the normal round, the main intake into school from the start of September in Reception. As a parent, you can apply for a place to the Local Authority.

There are different options for parents of children starting school in Reception. This includes part-time education and deferring or delaying admission until later in the Reception year or, for children with birthdays in the summer term, to the following September. Come and talk to us if you are considering this.

Do come and talk with us if you are interested in a place in a different year group for any reason. 

Applications for residents of Cornwall are made between 15 November and 15 January for primary schools at

The closing dates are the same nationally.

For questions about your child joining the school or just about the admissions process in general, please don’t hesitate to contact the school direct or contact Cornwall School Admissions: telephone 0300 1234 101 or by email [email protected]

Part time offer

For reception children of non-compulsory school age

We invite parents to visit so that we can discuss the provision on offer to children in our Reception class, how it is tailored to meet the needs of the youngest children, parent concerns, how their needs would be met as they move through the school and school readiness. Children follow the same Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum in Reception as in Nursery and Childminder settings. The Early Years is delivered in a way where learning involves lots of play and exploration rather than formal learning at tables and can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual child.
