To promote an aspirational school ethos underpinned by human values based on valuing our self, each other, and our environment.
Newquay Primary Academy is a place where there is no limit to what every child can achieve, and where every child has the chance to fulfil their unique potential. Newquay Primary Academy is a safe, calm, happy and purposeful place where every child feels wanted, loved and valued for exactly who they are. Our pupils have a sense of enthusiasm, wonder and curiosity about the world which never leaves them. They are lifelong learners with the knowledge, aspirations and skills to achieve their hopes and dreams for the future.
A values-based education
Newquay Primary Academy is a values-based school. Our historic school motto echoes our belief in the importance of doing the right thing, working hard together and being resilient in everything we do. Our pupils are given a strong moral compass. They value the differences in themselves and in others. They understand the importance of community cohesion and making a positive contribution to the community in which we live – and to our wider global community. Our whole staff team, parents and pupils are involved in promoting our values and recognising where others are ‘living the values’.
In a unique location
Newquay Primary Academy is situated in a unique location on Cornwall’s Atlantic coast. We provide our pupils with inspirational opportunities to connect not only with Cornwall’s beautiful natural environment, but with our proud heritage and culture. Our pupils are confident and grounded, with a strong sense of place. They are proud ambassadors for our school and our values, both historic and present.
Our school is co-located with Newquay Tretherras secondary school. Both academies are part of Cornwall Education Learning Trust (CELT). Because we share facilities and are part of the same trust we are able to offer a comprehensive and consistent approach to education. We are able to support each child – knowing them well as individual learners, tracking pupil progress and offering consistent pastoral care – for the whole of their learning journey from age 3 to age 18. Opportunities are also offered for our primary pupils to learn in specialist facilities, including science and technology rooms, not accessible to most primary school pupils.
In a nutshell…
We want to teach our pupils how to be MORE AWESOME!
