Summer 1

It seems summer term 1 has flown by in a hectic flurry of learning activities. Canute class has been growing, planting and observing using science to explore how plants thrive and Tregeagle has been immersed in the world of the Ancient Greeks. The school has been teeming with enthusiasm and the children are very articulate about how they learn, what they learn and how they know they are making progress – fantastic conversations to have with them.

Reminder that Friday 24th May is an INSET day for staff training and we return to school on Monday 3rd June for the final half term of the academic year.

We say goodbye to Mrs Westacott, who is returning to Pelynt school, and we wish her all the very best. Her warmth and kindness have permeated school and she will be missed. In her place, we welcome Mrs Andrews who will teach Canute class on Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays. Mrs Andrews will be outside greeting the children on Wednesday 5th June at the start of the day giving you the chance to meet her too.

Achievement Assembly:

Writer of the week:

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.
