Spring is here!

Dear Parents and Carers

We have had another good week at school. The enquiry questions around sowing and growing have meant that around the school areas of garden are coming to life, including a garden for dinosaurs which has appeared just outside of Penhallow Class. We are about to begin work on developing our outside learning area so please watch this space for more news.

World Book Day Books Vouchers are valid until Sunday 28th March if you haven’t already spent them.

PE Kits A reminder that children should have a complete PE kit in school every day. They should bring it in on the first day of the half term and keep it in school and we will send it home if it needs a wash. When the PE kits come home next week at the end of term we would be grateful if you would check that your child’s plimsolls or trainers still fit well so that the children can run in them safely. The children may have outgrown them since they were last in school!

School Uniform We are currently setting up an online supplier, more details to follow. If you need any items we still have items in stock here, including PE kit (red t-shirt, black shorts).

End of Term Next Thursday is the last day of term and the day will end at the same time as usual in order to keep our bubbles separate. School starts again on Monday 19th April.

Have a lovely weekend.

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.
