All Bridge Schools are now closed. Looe Primary is operating as the 'Hub' school providing a reduced service only for children of key workers and vulnerable groups within normal school registration hours for Looe, Duloe, Polperro and Trenode.
We had more fantastic costumes than ever this year, although a quick poll during our whole school assembly, clearly showed that Harry Potter and this fellow characters remain a firm favourite. We were also delighted to welcome our friends from Trenode Primary Academy, who spent the day with us, joining in with all of the activities.
We started the day with a reading breakfast and lots of families turned up to eat toast and read to each other; this is always a very popular time and one of our favourites. After a whole school assembly in which Miss Hearnden set us a brilliant quiz and where we shared some of our favourite books, we all went off to different classrooms for the day.
Pupils in KS1 worked with pupils in KS2 and there was lots of story-telling of course, as well as some very imaginative writing along with art and sport and different curriculum experiences.
World Book Day remains one of the best days of the school year and this year did not disappoint! Thank you to parents and carers for all of the effort that goes in to helping the children to come to school looking so different and so amazing and for helping to share our love for books and reading.

Based in Looe Cornwall, Looe Primary Academy is a member of Bridge Schools Trust. Looe joined the Trust in 2014 following conversion to academy status the same year. Looe Primary is a larger than average primary in Cornwall, with approximately 240 pupils on roll.
Our school motto is, ‘Creating Lifelong Learners’ and we pride ourselves on our supportive and inclusive ethos; our team of staff work incredibly hard to ensure that every child achieves the highest standards possible during their time with us. Our school sits in wonderful surroundings with full views of the sea and the environment in which we live plays a large role in our aim to deliver a happy and vibrant school that provides a wealth of opportunities for children to create, explore, invent and extend their learning. We are committed to providing the highest standard of teaching and learning and we achieve this through a rich and broad connected curriculum that provides a combination of challenge, support, encouragement and praise to ensure that all pupils fulfil their potential.
Looe Primary shares a Local Governing Body with one of our neighbouring schools, Polperro Primary Academy and our committed governors work closely with the Senior Leadership Team to ensure that they have a good and accurate, understanding of the improvement journey that Looe Primary has undertaken since receiving a ‘notice to improve’ judgement from Ofsted in January 2012. With a new leadership team and support from the Bridge Schools Trust, Looe Primary Academy has significantly improved outcomes for pupils. We have become a forward-thinking school that has experienced rapid improvement and improving results.
Our pupils are happy and tell us that they enjoy their time at Looe Primary, with fun learning and teachers and staff who know them and who are always there to help. Our parent and family communications tell us that they are happy with the school, that they feel their children are safe and that the school cares about them. We strongly believe in the whole child and preparing our pupils to be active citizens for life in a modern, democratic society. We are a community school in a rich and vibrant community and we are very proud to be part of this.
Safeguarding and welfare is intrinsic and essential in all that we do at Looe Primary. Children are taught the values of resilience, empathy, trust, responsibility, aspiration, enthusiasm, curiosity and determination. We promote open and honest communication with parents, carers and the specialists who support us.
When you visit Looe Primary Academy, you will find a welcoming and purposeful environment, with relationships built on mutual respect where our pupils develop skills for lifelong learning. Achievement, progress and a ‘can do’ attitude are at the heart of our philosophy; we develop this by nurturing pupils’ creativity, to grow independent learners who understand that mistakes can be a learning opportunity.
