As a school we are determined to help your child reach his / her potential whether they join us in the nursery or at any other time in their school career. We aim to do this by building on children’s successes ensuring that they are happy and feel supported.
Our school vision statement is:
Aspire for excellence through making learning irresistible.
Porthleven School: a place where we can grow together and where I can be me.
We aim to make learning irresistible by offering an attractive environment and a broad rich curriculum that is supported by a variety of after school and extra-curricular activities. Many of the extra-curricular activities are offered by visiting coaches and enthusiastic volunteers and we believe that all pupils should have equal access to these activities.
As a staff we believe that however good a school we may be there are always areas of the school that we can improve and to this aim we are constantly reviewing all aspects of school life. We welcome any involvement from friends, parents and others to help us to provide the very best for the children in our care.
We have a very enthusiastic and active PTA and I would encourage all parents to support them and get involved in any activities. They have been extremely successful in recent years in gaining funding and providing fantastic activities for the whole community.
We are a school family and believe that everyone has a role to play in enabling children to grow to become the very best that they possibly can.
I look forward to working with you and your family over the coming years.
You may remember that last year the children were introduced to a well-being and character development programme centred around virtues. Our children need the opportunity to develop those personal strengths that will enable them to go out into the world with confidence, resilience and the self-belief needed to negotiate the challenges that life brings.
Every week a new virtue will be introduced to the children with examples of how they can identify and develop it in their lives. We will also inform parents of our virtue of the week and ask if you to could look for opportunities to praise your child for showing the virtue or how they can develop it further. In time it would be great to hear children sharing examples of how they have shown virtues at home as well as in school.
This weeks virtue is . . . . . . .
