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.
Our school is one of the family of schools who together are Southerly Point Co-operative Multi-Academy Trust. We genuinely support each other and work closely together to achieve our aim of ‘enabling excellence for all’: our children, our staff and our communities. This is the expectation of all of those who work with us, whether in the classroom or in the essential support roles behind the scenes. Our work is underpinned by the co-operative values and these inform everything we do.
There are many opportunities for everyone’s learning experiences to be enhanced, from the youngest child in the Trust’s nursery provision through to the students in our Post 16 provision. The staff learn together too, sharing ideas and resources for the benefit our children.
We hope you will enjoy finding out more about our schools – each one them is unique and has its own character – but all of them are caring, friendly and nurturing – and we commend them to you.

We are demonstrating to pupils how easy it is to share images on social media. Please share our image and in the comments box write where you are in the world. Thank you.
Within twenty minutes we had over 300 views 40 shares and reached New Zealand, Australia, Germany and Spain! We will continue to check this post to monitor its journey around the world.
This week we held a follow up assembly to see how far Derek had travelled over half term. The results were fascinating with views exceeding 86,000 and spanning almost all continents. Attached to this post is the slide show used in assembly. It has been a worthwhile lesson in the power of social media and the children have grasped the concept magnificently.
We have had worldwide support with this project for which we are very grateful. One quote worthy of a mention; "It's so good to see Schools visually showing children what can happen & how quickly. I volunteer for NSPCC presenting 'Speak Out, Stay Safe' programs through assemblies & workshops. Part of our focus is online safety. Hence my earlier link of Share Aware."
