5th July 2024

On Monday Rev Richard came in for an assembly about friendship to start what has been a different week this week with year 6 out at their transition days on Tuesday and then away at their residential at the Ultimate Adventure Centre in Devon. It has been quiet without them, however the children made up for this yesterday in their weekly music lesson with Mrs Butlin where they enjoyed using the keyboards!

Summer Reading Challenge Please find attached 2 posters. One advertises the Summer Reading Challenge and where to sign up and the other, Looe Library’s Summer Reading Challenge Festival during the Summer Holiday.

FOPS Summer Fete (Friday 19th July at 2pm) MUFTI day 15th July Reminder that Monday 15th July will be a MUFTI day where we will be asking for donations of an item matching your child’s house team colour to create hampers for raffles prizes.

Polperro Primary Academy is a happy and thriving School for children aged 2 to 11 years and is often described as ‘somewhere special’ by visitors, parents and children alike. We currently have 102 children on roll across four classes and our pre-school nursery, and provide a seamless transition between nursery and primary school. In addition to our creative and well-qualified teaching staff, we have excellent teaching assistants who work across the school supporting and enhancing children’s learning. All of these staff are dedicated to providing pupils with quality learning opportunities and take immense pride in their work and in doing the best job they can to support the school.

We are very proud of the successes of our school, of the excellent relationships we have with families and friends within our community and of the governors, staff and children who work hard to make our school a happy place where we can learn together in friendship. We are proud of our academic results and are committed to continuing to raise standards and to providing an effective, inspiring education for all of our children. We hope that the close cooperation and partnership between school and home will enhance and support your child’s development throughout these important early years.

The stars of our school are of course, the children themselves and very few visitors fail to comment on their politeness, energy and enthusiasm. I feel very privileged and proud to lead their learning.

We very much hope you find this website useful and informative and please to not hesitate to contact either myself, or a member of my team, should you need any further information.
