New Build to Start

We are delighted to announce that contractors will be on the Newquay Tretherras site on Monday 25th to start work on our brand new primary school building.

Mr Craig Hayes is Newquay Primary Academy’s Executive Headteacher:

“I am so excited that work is finally going to commence on site so that we can open the doors of Newquay Primary Academy to our first ever cohort of pupils in September 2021.

“Our historic school motto – Proba Tene (hold fast) – echoes our belief in the importance of doing the right thing, working hard together and being resilient in everything we do. I have been working on this project since late 2015 and we have definitely had to ‘hold fast’ to overcome challenges and obstacles in order achieve our dream for the Newquay community.

“My next job is to work alongside my CELT colleagues to employ an outstanding staff team and create a safe, calm, happy and purposeful place where every child feels wanted, loved and valued for exactly who they are. My newly appointed team will work collaboratively over the next few months to create a curriculum that will develop our pupils’ independence, confidence, resilience and curiosity. This is not just wonderful news for me, but an exciting time for our first cohort of pupils and their parents as their primary school career begins.”

Pre-Opening Consultation Report

As part of the process of opening a new school, Cornwall Education Learning Trust was required to hold a consultation exercise (under Section 10 of the Academies Act 2010) to determine whether the Trust should enter into a funding agreement with the Secretary of State to set up a free school. We ran a six-week consultation period from 5th October to 16th November 2020. This consultation was an important part of the pre-opening stage both to raise local awareness of our plans for Newquay Primary Academy and to satisfy the legal requirements around setting up a free school. 

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete our consultation questionnaire. The Section 10 Report has been submitted to the Department for Education and can be viewed and downloaded below.
