This school project explored the many ‘comings and goings' that have taken place during the life of two ports near Penzance. Based on academic research by Dr Jo Mattingly (for the EPE publication Cornwall and the Coast: Mousehole and Newlyn) the project’s key stage transitional teaching material considers the people of many different races, cultures, faiths and languages that have passed through and settled in the Mounts Bay area. With this school material, pupils also consider the state of working ports in Mount’s Bay today and have the opportunity to devise and present their own vision for a port in the future.
Sense of Place delivered the schools project in partnership with EPE and has successfully trialed the resources in seven schools. Sense of Place was founded by Cornwall County Council to deliver the curriculum in Cornish schools with distinctiveness and diversity. Coral Pepper describes the project in the short article below.

Cornwall is running two school projects. The first, completed with Cornwall County Council project Sense of Place, is entitled ‘Comings and Goings – Mounts Bay’. Working with Sense of Place was timely as they had just launched a transition pack based in Falmouth, and had been asked for something similar by a secondary school in Penwith. The author of our Penwith book, Dr Joanna Mattingly, provided research material for their use.
The unit supports the transition for pupils moving between primary and secondary schools. The pilot involved pupils of Mounts Bay School who studied the Jewish settlement in Penzance and fishing in Mounts Bay. They made presentations to governors, visitors and their peers.
