Welcome to St George's!
St George's CofE Primary Academy is located in Stonehouse in close proximity to Royal William Yard, Devil's Point and the Hamoaze estuarine stretch of the River Tamar. Our school is part of the St Christopher Multi Academy Trust and we work closely with our local church St Paul's. The school benefits from extensive grounds including a school field, forest and gardening areas. We have a small school library and a nurture room. We also have much loved school guinea pigs which the children delight in caring for!
St George's CofE Primary Academy promotes an inclusive environment where all staff support the children to achieve their best intellectually, creatively, emotionally, physically, spiritually, culturally and morally. Learning takes place in the caring and supportive environment of a Church of England school that is at the heart of the local and wider community, raising standards of attainment for all pupils. We want all of our children to be confident, happy and healthy individuals, successful learners and responsible citizens.
At St George's CofE Primary Academy we take pride in knowing all of our children as individuals ensuring that they are happy, feel safe and enjoy learning as well as being challenged to be the best they can be.
We celebrate the children's successes and achievements across the curriculum, not solely academic but also valuing their creative, sporting and extra-curricular talents.
We have three easy to understand rules which are embedded across the school:
- Be Safe
- Be Kind
- Be Ready to Learn
