Welcome to Summer 2

Dear Children and Families

On Tuesday we will welcome back some of our year 6 pupils to school. We are looking forward to seeing those who are coming in and we will, I am sure, continue to miss those who are at home.  The teachers have posted some exciting learning on the class pages which pupils will be doing wherever their place of learning is.

This week we launch our new enquiry “What’s all that fuss about Cornwall?” It will provide us with an opportunity to explore the beautiful county we call home; to dig deeper and find out about legends, piskies, customs, fishing, festivals and food - in short; what makes our county a great place to live. 

Around this time of year, we would usually have an assembly and some lessons around sun safety. With the beautiful weather that we are enjoying at the moment, it is even more important that we all know how to enjoy the sun safely so on the INSET day (Monday 1st June) why not have a look at the sun safe activity provided on each class' learning grid.

Whether you are in school or learning at home this half term, I hope you have fun.

Keep safe and take care.

Mrs Hillman

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.
