St George’s Church of England Primary Academy


Welcome to St George’s Church of England Primary Academy.


On behalf of the children, staff and governors may I welcome you and your family to our schools website.

Hopefully, our site will provide you with a wealth of information about our school as well as providing downloadable material and useful internet links. It also gives information about the varied opportunities we offer pupils and how you, as parents and friends, can become actively involved in the life of the school and its community.

St George’s Academy thrives on the team ethos, where staff, governors and parents work closely to provide the best possible environment for all pupils. At St George’s we value every child and encourage them to achieve their full potential. Adults employed, 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 and library. There are currently 81  children on roll across 4 classes: Tavy ( Reception ), Plym ( Year 1& 2). Lyhner ( Y3 &Y4) and Tamar ( Y5&Y6). We have a PAN of 15  but due to our class organisation we are able to take more children in certain year groups. 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 grammar schools, Sir John Hunt, Ivybridge C.C  and Torpoint C.C.  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 Georges, we are actively involved in community projects; we work closely with other Church schools in the city and  we are very excited that ,as part of the M.A.T., we are closely linked to the new Academy, St Matthew’s, which is located in  Derriford.

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 and there are opportunities on many of the pages for parent feedback.

You can read our most recent ‘ Good’ OFSTED report (September 2016) in the Ofsted section of our website.

Please feel free to contact the school should you wish need additional information.
