Welcome to Penryn Primary Academy & Nursery 2023-24
Welcome to the Aspire Academy Trust.
Aspire is a vibrant, highly successful and widely recognised Trust determined to raise standards of educational achievement to the very highest levels. We don’t just aim for our children to achieve what is average or expected, but for them to excel both academically and in character.
We live in a global economy that requires our children to be prepared to think both critically and creatively, solve complex problems, and to communicate well. Mastery of the basics: reading, writing, maths and technology is our core purpose, and this sits firmly alongside ensuring our children have well-developed social and emotional skills. Aspire academies have a strong emphasis on the sport, arts and social, moral spiritual and cultural education.
All our 29 schools and academies are an integral part of their local communities and have a real sense of identity. We value the contribution each of our communities makes and the distinctive opportunities and diversity it offers to the Trust. By working in true partnership, we offer exceptional learning experiences to all our children, so they benefit from the strength that being part of the extended Aspire family brings. If you want to learn more about us, then please visit our website at www.aspireacademytrust.org
I look forward to hopefully welcoming you to the Aspire family!

Vision & Values
We are very proud of our school and the opportunities and experiences it can offer to the children within our community, most notably our Forest School provision and swimming pool on site, which every child at our school accesses! Our aim is to ensure that every child has the opportunity to enjoy their school life and to achieve their maximum potential within a supported, vibrant, whole child-centred environment. It is our belief that working closely with families is the key to success and we offer an open-door policy to parents and carers.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which sets out the standards for learning in the Early Years. Within the EYFs our children explore and experience areas of the curriculum through independent play and adult led activities both indoors and in the outside area and Forest School. Our curriculum is flexible, experience rich and based on the needs and interests of our young learners.
"Tapestry keeps you in touch with your child’s day wherever you are"
Tapestry is an easy-to-use and secure online learning journal that helps staff and families across Aspire academies celebrate their children’s learning and development both at school and home.
Tapestry facilitates this by enabling a personal journal that builds over time. Photographs, videos and notes of special moments will be made available regularly to you via your iPhone or Android App.
More details on how to activate your Tapestry account will be shared once your child starts.
