Fire station with Blisland School
On Monday, Canute class visited Polruan Firestation to find out more about the fire service and how fire engines work. This was another opportunity for the children to get together with Kensa Class from Blisland and reciprocate the visit Canute made to Blisland a few weeks ago. The children enjoyed showing the visitors around school and happily shared their space and resources for the reminder of the day.

Printing with Ellie Russell Hsieh
Tuesday was a special day for Tregeagle class as they hosted a visit from local print maker, Ellie Russell Hsieh organised by Mrs Phillips. The children spent a fantastic day learning about mono and block printing and have produced some beautiful prints inspired by their PE themed dance – “The Little Matchstick Girl” - Thank you to Ellie for sharing her expertise, passion and insight.

Unexpectedly, we found the school covered in snow on Thursday - much to the delight of the children. For those children who were able to join us for the morning, it was a cold but fun start to the day with lots of rolling around, making snow angels and sliding across the playground. Good job we have lots of spare clothes and warm radiators.

Polruan Primary Academy is a small, happy and vibrant school, situated at the very top of the village with the most fantastic views of the Fowey Estuary. Our school currently has two classes: Canute Class (Key stage 1) and Tregeagle Class (Key stage 2) both inhabiting spacious, welcoming classrooms with access to outside space. We also have a pre-school nursery provision embedded in our KS1 classroom, providing a seamless transition from pre-school to school.

Children at our school develop a love for learning in the coastal and rural environment immediately surrounding us and use this to explore national and global issues.

We pride ourselves on our inclusive supportive ethos and high expectations for all. Our dedicated and highly skilled teaching staff work incredibly hard to ensure all pupils reach the highest standards during their time with us.

We have strong community links and our school is an integral part of the village community. We work closely with our neighbouring schools and the wider network of Bridge Schools Trust.
