Easter Fun 

Easter Eggs

Winding down for the Easter break with an Easter egg hunt. All the children went hunting for eggs which they were able to swap for an enormous chocolate bunny kindly donated by FOPA. From their smiles, it is clear to see the bunnies were  greatly appreciated. 

Thank you for all your support during yet another turbulent term. I hope you all have a restful and peaceful Easter break.

We look forward to welcoming all the children back in school on Monday 19th April.

Take care and stay safe,
Mrs Wills.



Spring time

This week saw a glimmer of spring time with some lovely warm sunshine. We took advantage of this by moving lots of our learning outside. In Canute class, the children had the water station in operation for the first time, to much delight of the children. In Tregeagle class,  the children have been making wire birdfeeders which now adorn the playground and will hopefully attract some wildlife for us to observe and appreciate.

On several days since our return from lockdown, we have had 100% attendance at school which is amazing. Thank you for ensuring your child attends school every day.

Parent Consultations
You will have received an email regarding parent consultations next week. If you have not already done so, please email secretary@polruanprimary.co.uk or phone 01726 870402 to let us know your preferred slot so that teachers can meet with you to discuss how your child has settled back in and their progress this year.

End of Term
Next Thursday (1st April 2021) is the last day of term. We will end the day at 3:15pm.  School starts again on Monday 19th April.


Artistic Impressions 

Art work in entrance hall

Coming back to school after lockdown, we decided to freshen up the entrance hall upstairs by creating a collective artistic masterpiece. After debating, we agreed on a Learning Tree. Last week, all the children in the school have been busy creating pieces of art to add to this. We wanted something colourful, bright and happy to reflect the children in the school and I am sure you will agree that they have created something rather special.

In addition to the colourful leaves, each of the children made an owl which "twoots" how they feel about learning. We cannot wait to invite you all back into school so you can experience this for yourselves. In the meantime, here are a few pictures to show off their creation.

Welcome Back 

It's good to be back!

It has been a fantastic first week back to school. Every one of our children have attended school every single day - what an achievement in these challenging times. 

The classrooms have been full of excited, energetic and enthusiastic children keen to get back to learning, playing and socialising with their friends. Lots of brilliant learning activities have taken place, both inside and out and every one of the children have made pieces of art for our new school entrance display. 

Have a lovely weekend
Mrs Wills


Thank You 

We are extremely grateful to our local community groups, who have granted funding for us to buy electronic devices to support remote learning. 
FOWEY RIVER LIONS have donated £300 LANTEGLOS PARISH COUNCIL supported an offer from County Councillor, EDWINA HANNAFORD for a £400 grant from the Community Chest. 
FOPA kindly topped up this funding to allow us to purchase 3 new iPads.


Half Term 

In this together.

We have put all the pieces together to make our final puzzle and I am sure you will agree, it looks brilliant.

It has been a very peculiar half term, where we have found new and different ways to learn, navigated technology and managed the turbulence around us. Despite these challenges, the children have been remarkable showing resilience, determination and character. They are a real credit to our school.

Thank you for all your support.

Enjoy the break, stay safe and take care,


Community Hearts 

Community Hearts

The children at school and at home have made these beautiful hearts using materials provided by 'The Polruan Isolation Support Group'.

The hearts will be delivered on Valentine's Day to those who live alone in the village, as an expression of love and care and help alleviate loneliness in this difficult lockdown time.




Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 9th February. This year the theme is ‘An internet we trust – exploring reliability in the online world’.

We have a day of exciting activities planned to help our children create a better internet.



Dear All,

We have made to the end of another week of remote learning. Sadly, it seems we will have to continue on this path for at least another 4 weeks following the announcements made earlier this week. We will keep filling the empty seats in the classroom with our "pop-up pupils".

The feedback from our parent survey has started to come in and we have taken encouragement from the many positive comments you have made regarding our remote learning and the provision we have put in place for children who are attending school. If you have not yet had the chance to complete the survey, please do so as it helps us understand what works and what needs tweaking. You can complete the survey by following this the link below, it closes on Monday. https://www.bridgeschools.co.uk/Parent-Questionnaire-January-2021

We have been receiving some fantastic puzzle pieces for our shared school puzzle. If you have not yet sent your piece into school, please make time to email or deliver it safely sometime next week. We are keen to get the display up and share it with you all.

Take care and stay safe,
Mrs Wills
