St George's CofE Primary Academy
Wisdom, Aspiration, Trust, Endeavour, Respect and Spirit
St George’s Church of England Primary Academy is a small school with a village feel in the centre of Plymouth. It joined the Trust in September 2013 and is one of just a handful of church schools in the city. It offers a distinctive ethos in a nurturing environment.
The school strives to develop confident, resilient, positive, reflective children who love to learn, who enjoy coming to school, and through the planned rich variety of experiences develop the necessary skills for lifelong learning.
The dedicated staff team are committed to developing the knowledge, skills, attitudes and understanding which will enable children to enjoy learning, achieve success and to feel contented and fulfilled. Children learn about, and have confidence in, themselves as learners where they are encouraged to set goals and hold high aspirations for their future.
The school values of Wisdom, Aspiration, Trust, Endeavour, Respect and Spirit underpin teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, resilient, happy citizens who are prepared for lifelong learning. Along with these, the British Values of Democracy, Law, Liberty, Respect and Tolerance are promoted in school through the curriculum, collective worship and by the school council. The school is committed to serving the community and recognises the multi-cultural nature of its community, both near and far.
As an inclusive, caring Christian school where every child matters, the school recognises that all children have talents and abilities to celebrate, and a part of its role is to help them discover and develop these. Your child is valued as an individual, who through the experiences and opportunities provided will grow to gain a better understanding of the teachings of Jesus Christ. This positive ethos is based upon our shared Christian values which are encouraged and promoted, through the way the school conducts itself as well as being embedded in the curriculum.
