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.

Beano Joke Experts Visit the School

Posted: 09/07/2019

Talland Class had a visit from the Beano Joke Experts on Tuesday 9th July, whose job it is to analyse why things are humorous. The purpose of their visit was to determine why Talland Class is so uncommonly funny.

The class spent the day learning joke creation, how to use sound effects, how to use comedy walks and laughs among many things. They shared this with the rest of the school in a comedy assembly. This photo shows the 'deadpanners' managing to keep straight faces while the audience told their funniest jokes.

It was a fantastic and memorable day with lots and lots of laughs.

At the end of the assembly the whole school recited 'The Pledge':

I promise to turn the frowns around
To raise the spirits when someone's down
To make up jokes for everyone
One for all and all for FUN!
