About Godolphin

Welcome to the website hosted by the Godolphin Cross Community Association (CIO) – (GCCA).

We became registered with the Charity Commission as a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) on 29th February 2016. The membership of the association is open to all those permanently resident in the village of Godolphin Cross and surrounding hamlets.

Godolphin Cross is a lively community of 700 people, hosting a primary school - but very little else. It was formerly served by two churches, two village shops and a pub. The shops were converted into residential use over 10 years ago, and a similar fate befell the C. of E. church in 2005.

By the time the Godolphin Arms pub closed in October 2015, the ability of the community to meet up and get together had been severely curtailed, and Godolphin was in danger of becoming a dormitory village only.

Godolphin Primary School

INFORMATION:

by Richard McKie

The school places a high emphasis on promoting pupils’ good spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Pupils are well prepared for their next stage of education and for life in modern Britain. Pupils are courteous to visitors and pupils of all ages mix well together when learning and at playtimes. They show respect to one another, their teachers and other adults in the school. Pupils that spoke with the inspector say they enjoy school and feel ‘included and special’. Older pupils willingly take responsibility for looking after younger children that helps to promote an inclusive and caring school environment.
