Merry Christmas Everyone

Dear Parents and Carers

Thank you for your support this term and during 2020. The children have been amazing in the way they have dealt with the changes and challenges at school. They have worked extremely hard since their first day back in September and their good humour and resilience and amazingly positive attitude to learning has been wonderful to see.

The children have worked hard all week to complete their learning before enjoying a wonderful Christmas meal on Wednesday that the children ate in their bubbles (see photo) and their well-deserved parties on Thursday afternoon.  

Here are some important messages for the end of term:

Christmas Blogs
We have missed having you in for performances this year however teachers have uploaded videos of our Christmas activities on to the class blogs for you to enjoy.

If your child tests positive for Coronavirus (Covid-19) during the school holidays, please inform me by email ( as soon as possible. I will check emails up to and including Christmas Eve so that the school can work with Public Health England and Test and Trace to identify and inform those who may need to isolate.

Dates and INSET
Monday 4th January is an INSET day.  We look forward to welcoming the children back to school on Tuesday 5th January 2021.

With all best wishes for a very safe and very happy Christmas. 
Mrs Hillman and all of the staff at Polperro Primary Academy

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 141 children on roll across five 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 - the fantastic academic results we achieved last year, when compared both nationally and with local schools, and 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 maintain our commitment to the learning of each and every person within our School family and are resolute in that commitment that sees the continual development of our children.

We are committed to continuing to raise standards and provide an effective, inspiring education for all of our children. We will continue to have high expectations and are keen to move the school forward, building on those successes. 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.
