Building on firm foundations. Matthew 7:24&25
Welcome to St George's Church of England Primary Academy.
I wish to extend a very warm welcome to you. I feel very proud and privileged to be head teacher here at St George’s and I hope that you will be equally proud of our school when you join our ‘school family’.
Our aim is that everything that we do in school continually ‘builds on firm foundations’ both academically and in terms of our Christian values of LIGHTS (Love, Inclusion, Guidance, Hope, Trust and Service).
Our website gives you a glimpse of what life is like at St George’s. Please come along and see for yourselves our amazing children and staff at work. I feel confident that you will truly feel our values and ethos as you enter our school.
St George's Academy thrives on the team ethos, where staff, governors and parents work closely to provide the best possible learning journey and environment for all pupils. At St George’s we value every child and encourage them to achieve their full potential. Staff are valued, supported and challenged to be the very best they can be. Our school has Christian values which are consistently promoted by all adults and children. Above all, it is our aim to provide a safe, secure and caring environment for all who come here.
St George’s is a Church of England Primary Academy and is often described as 'a village school in the city'. It is located in a wonderful part of Plymouth on the Stonehouse Peninsula. The school chose to become an Academy in September 2013 and is part of the St Christopher's Multi Academy Trust (M.A.T.). The school benefits from extensive grounds. Internally, the school houses 4 classes, a hall, nurture room and library. There are currently 94 children on roll across 4 classes: Tavy ( Reception), Plym ( Year Y1 & 2), Lynher ( Y3 & 4) and Tamar ( Y5 & 6). We offer one point of entry in September to all new Reception children, however parents can defer their child's place until January. In recent years pupils have transferred to the local grammar schools, Ivybridge C.C, Coombe Dean, Stoke Damerel C.C. Notre Dame and Hele's. Working collaboratively is very important to us and we are very fortunate to have such a dedicated staff and outstanding local Church team who are committed to this. At St George's, we are actively involved in community projects and benefit from close links with our local community; we work closely with other Church schools in the city and we are very excited to be part of the Christopher's Mulit Academy Trust.
We believe parental support is of paramount importance and so we actively encourage parents to take part in their child’s school life. Why not join the PTA committee, help out on theme days, at school events or support trips? There are many opportunities, throughout the school year, for parents to celebrate and join in with their child's learning. Parents and visitors are always welcome to come to our school or to contact us to share their thoughts, positive feelings and to give us suggestions how we may improve life at St George's. This website is updated regularly by staff and pupils so we hope that you enjoy finding out about us.
