The striker spoke to pupils at Vicar's Green Primary School about his own primary school years, what life was like in his native Germany and the dedication required to make it as a professional footballer.
Polter, who moved to Loftus Road last year, also revealed to kids that he changed his position from goalkeeper to striker after playing in the position with multiple teams.
Co-headteacher Ann Ellen said: "Sebastian Polter was a great role model for the children.
"He gave an inspirational speech discussing the attributes needed to become a top footballer such as passion and love for football, dedication, discipline, training and being a team player.
"He also reminded children about how homework has to be done despite training and attending football clubs.
"He answered the children’s questions and took time to play with different football teams spending time with the children.
"He was a natural with the children and is a fantastic representative of Queens Park Rangers Club."
The visit came after the school, which is in Alperton but is recognised as an Ealing Community Scool, underwent a huge makeover last year but is being officially celebrated in 2016.
Improvements include new classrooms, canteen, kitchen facilities, staff room and a new sports hall.
Year 6 pupil Ryan added: "It was a really special opportunity as most children don’t get the chance to meet a professional football player".
