We hope you are enjoying the new look website. We have recently added a new 'Announcement' function, an 'Events Diary' and most recently a 'Head's blog' feature to keep you updated with the great learning happening at Looe Primary. We plan to add 'Class Blogs' soon and are grateful for all Feedback on our new platform.
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.

It does seem some time ago now since we said goodbye to Mr Arnold, but he sent a 'thank you' card recently, so now seems a good time to share our wonderful leaving assembly with you. The donations for a gift from all were very well received and he was given a number of gifts including a picture of Looe made from recycled items, a Tottenham Hotspur shirt with his name on the back, a voucher for a hotel stay and lots of chocolate (if you know Mr Arnold, you will know this was a good choice!). The assembly was a mixture of songs, cards, videos, jokes and yes, there were some tears! Mr Arnold says, 'To all my friends at Looe Primary, I just wanted to write to say thank you for the wonderful send off you gave me, I was completely blown away! The cards, songs, video, jokes, presents and amazing assembly were all so wonderful and I've enjoyed telling all my friends and family about it.' Good luck at Brunel Primary Academy, Mr Arnold.
