You may be aware that Poltair School will be operating a slightly different school day from September. Essentially we will be moving from a three period day to a four period day, in order to try and improve the learning experience for all students. The start and finish times of the school day will remain unchanged. In addition, there is no change to the length of the break times, although there are small adjustments to the timings of these to accommodate the changes to the lesson lengths.

The new timings are as follows:

08.35Tutor time
09.00Lesson 1
10.15Break 1
10.40Lesson 2
11.55Lesson 3
13.10Break 2
13.45Lesson 4
15.00End of main school day / Poltair +

If you would like to discuss the changes in any greater detail please do not hesitate to contact the school.

The St Austell Learning Community is a network that includes all the primary schools and both secondary schools (Penrice & Poltair) in St Austell and the surrounding area. On Thursday 3 July the network held 'A Celebration of Achievement' Evening at St John's Methodist Church.

Each of the schools, nominated students from within their school, to be recognised for their achievement.

Jon Cleave (from Fisherman's Friends) was the invited Guest of Honour, the Cornishman is also a well-respected children's author, and the Master of Ceremonies was John Martin. The evening began with two superb musical performances from Penrice's Jazz quartet and Poltair's singers. The welcome address was given by Mr Tong before the Presentation of Awards.

The categories for the Awards and the winners from Poltair were:

  • Creative and Performing Arts:   Emma White
  • Physical:   Daniel Marks
  • Language & Literacy:   Katie Sturtridge
  • Science/Technology:   Charlotte Grigg
  • Numeracy:    Cadan Glass
  • Citizenship:   Ben Bassett
  • Humanities:    William Heamen

We are extremely proud of them all on their achievements - well done.
