East Looe, Cornwall
Based in Looe Cornwall, Looe Primary Academy is a member of Bridge Multi-Academy 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 around 280 pupils on roll. The children enjoy a spectacular setting overlooking the sea and we look to involve our amazing outdoors in our learning where we can. Our school motto is "together we can make a difference" and our trained team of 37 staff ensure that by working together opportunities are optimised for all our children. The Governing Body work closely with the Senior Leadership Team and have a good, and true, understanding of the improvement journey Looe has been on since receiving a 'notice to improve' judgement from Ofsted in January 2012. Our children are happy and enjoy their time at Looe Primary. They tell us that learning is fun and teachers are always there to help them. We know our children love it here, because they keep coming back when they are supposed to have left! Our parent and family questionnaires tell us that they are happy with the school, they feel their children are safe and that the school cares about them. When we asked what the children felt the school vision and values are, the pupils responses included; how to be happy, have fun, be the best you can be, learn as much as you can, work together, to aim high, to be a good citizen and to take care of each other.
