Head's Blog

21st June 2024

It was wonderful to see so many of you at the School’s festival day on Tuesday. We are extremely proud of the way the children performed and have been delighted with your kind feedback about the children’s performances and the day. Thank you.

We had even more excitement yesterday with an Olympic Day for years 2-6 which involved the children learning Olympic Sports such as Fencing and Archery. The children have enjoyed participating in the Bridge Schools Games all week. Photos of the Games, the festival, and the Olympic Day are on the class blogs.
Sports Day will be held next Tuesday 25th June, starting at 10:00 am and ending at 12:00.  Please ensure your child has their kit in school and a sun hat and sun cream and a water bottle. The forecast looks good and we are looking forward to seeing you there.

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.
