Class of 2014 - Leavers Ball - ArrivingCourtesy of Duchy Photography

As the morning of Friday 27 June arrived, unfortunately, so did the rain and the wind! With everyone checking the weather forecast, it was still too changeable to know what we were in for! Still, Miss Owens and her band of helpers descended on the Carlyon Bay Golf Club to begin the decorating process. Armed with balloons of ivory, blue and green, in true Poltair style, arches and table decorations were created and the scene was set to say goodbye and celebrate our Class of 2014.

From 6.15pm onwards, our Year 11's began arriving in style - from a Batmobile to a Bentley, from a Ferrari to a space hopper and not mentioning the articulated lorry and motorbike convoy! Each and every arrival dropping off another dapper looking young man or a beautiful young lady - the pupils looking stunning in outfits of all shapes, sizes and colours. The rain appeared for only a few minutes but it certainly wasn't enough to dampen anyone's spirits.

Pupils were treated to a welcome drink, canapes and desserts, before dancing the night away in the marquee. Pupils received awards for the evening such as 'Best Dressed' to Aidy Walmsley, 'Best Entrance' to Ethan Champion and 'Most Stylish Couple' to Chloe Copping and Tyler Cross.

A cracking evening was had by all, topped off with pupils leaving with their yearbooks to commemorate their time at Poltair. We wish them all the success in the world, whatever the future may hold.

Policy Review

Dear Parents and Carers


As you may be aware, the statutory guidance from the Department for Education around Relationships and Sex Education has changed. Here at Poltair School, we have worked hard to think about how to teach this to our students, making sure that our lessons are engaging and designed to suit the needs of all of our students in an age appropriate manner. Students will have a lesson called Personal Development once a fortnight, in which this and other topics will be covered. This was formerly known as Morals and Ethics.


We would like to get feedback from our community in order to finalise our policy on the delivery of this important curriculum area. Our draft policy is available on our website for your consideration, and we welcome any questions, comments or feedback via email to Clare Price ([email protected]). When we are able to open up the site to parents and carers, we will hold a review and consultation meeting at school to consider our policy and delivery further. Please send any communications by 10th July 2020 at the latest.

Contact during exceptional circumstances

It is important that all children, families and professionals are able to contact key staff to share information in respect of safeguarding and concerns.

Following the wider opening of all CELT schools, there is now a member of the safeguarding team on duty in school every day. Please contact the school directly and ask for the DSL if you have any concerns you wish to discuss.

The dedicated CELT e mail address is still in operation and can be used if, for any reason, you are unable to contact the school;

[email protected]

This will be monitored during office hours only, Monday to Friday.

However, you should contact the Police or Social Care if you feel that a child is at risk of immediate serious harm.
