Busy children

We have launched our very first Extreme Reading Competition to find out which children love reading so much, they simply have to do it anywhere. We are looking forward to some innovative entries. Make sure your child's entry is emailed to Mrs Sandy by Wednesday 3rd November.

The children have been working with enthusiasm to get ready for Tuesday's Harvest Festival. It is a real treat for us all to be able to gather to celebrate this important date in the church calendar. We look forward to seeing you in the church for the 10am start and thank you for your support in limiting numbers so we can all stay safe.

The teachers are looking forward to welcoming you into their classrooms on Monday afternoon at 3pm to share expectations for learning, classroom routines and for you to have the chance to look at your child's work with them. We know that for some of you, this will be the very first time inside the building making it a very special occasion.

A reminder to book a time to discuss your child's progress with their class teacher. Please ring Mrs Sandy to book parent consultations for next week.

Have a lovely weekend,
Mrs Wills

Polruan Primary Academy is a small, caring and friendly school, situated at the very top of the village with the most fantastic views of the Fowey Estuary. Our school currently has two classes; Key stage 1 and 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 are an academy built on interdependence, encouraging all staff, pupils, parents and carers and the community, to work together to achieve more than they ever could have accomplished as individuals.

We believe primary school should be a safe and awe-inspiring place where learning happens both within and outside of the classroom and children will be encouraged to enjoy life whilst at school and discover their fascinations. All staff have high expectations of all pupils, and we believe in approaching teaching and learning in a holistic way. As well as developing children’s academic potential, we endeavour to support each child’s sporting, creative and artistic talents. We have strong community links and pride ourselves on being an integral part of our village community. We work closely with our neighbouring schools and share our governing body with Pelynt Primary Academy.

We are committed to raising standards, aspirations and offering the best possible opportunities for all our children to succeed. We hope that the close cooperation and partnership between school and home will enhance and support your child’s development and we are keen to offer opportunities for you to share in a variety of aspects of school life.

We hope you find the information on our website useful and informative. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need further information.
