Vision & Values

Building Confidence and Character: Ensuring our children have the confidence and character to take charge of their futures

Poltair is a school steeped in history at the heart of the St. Austell community.  However, what makes Poltair a special place is its young people, this is a school where children thrive & grow.  Our mission is to ensure that every child reaches their potential, we will challenge them to be the very best version of themselves, encouraging them to believe in themselves to ensure they achieve more than they thought possible.

We expect the very best from our students, we expect them to be model citizens in every way, the way they act, the way they dress, and we instil in them the confidence and resilience that will set them up for the very brightest of futures.

Our school mission statement:

We are transforming the lives of the young people in our care. We create a safe, calm, and focused learning environment for all learners to flourish. At Poltair School, our children grow in confidence and character to become proud, ambitious, and successful young people. They are empowered to embrace life’s opportunities and to be resilient to its challenges.

As a learning community we grow great learners, great teachers, and great leaders. We value our staff, who make a difference every day and invest in them to continue their professional development.

Over the next three years we will:

  • Widen the world for our children through inspirational experiences and opportunities
  • Implement unparalleled high quality teaching every single day
  • Secure exceptional progress and attainment for all our children
  • Celebrate the exemplary behaviour, conduct and attitudes of our children
