Since launching in September, thirty-one schools have now registered for the Go Cornish for Primary Schools programme. These primary schools are scattered across the length and breadth of Cornwall; from Otterham near Davidstow to Pendeen in West Penwith; from Grade Ruan on The Lizard to Coads Green near Launceston. 

Across these schools 5,800 pupils are already set to learn Cornish, as their schools work towards the Bronze Award.

Commissioned by Cornwall Council and masterminded by Golden Tree Productions, the Go Cornish for Primary Schools programme aims to give every child growing up in Cornwall the opportunity to learn something of the Cornish language, and to discover the culturally rich heritage of our amazing patch of the planet.

The Go Cornish programme is supported by Cornwall Council as part of its ‘Creative Manifesto’, which aims to develop creative industries in Cornwall, with the Cornish language being an important part Cornwall’s identity and cultural life. Kate Evan-Hughes, Director of Education at Cornwall Council, commented: “Inspiring children and young people to feel connected to Cornwall is important for Cornwall’s future economic growth. The Go Cornish resources will support our development of the broader curriculum and, most importantly, make language learning fun!”  

 Golden Tree hopes to raise awareness of the language and to inspire teachers, young people and their families to have fun with Cornish both inside and outside the classroom.
