Penryn Primary Newsletter - Summer 2023

Penryn Primary Academy
Summer Term 2023
Head of School Welcome
Welcome to our final newsletter of the year, I can’t quite believe we are at the end of another year at Penryn Primary Academy!

We’ve had a jam packed term, with lots of trips, visitors, camps and celebrations. All the staff have been working hard in preparation for meeting their new classes this week and I hope all the children enjoyed their first days in their new classes with their new teachers and support staff.

Although this time of year is exciting, as we look towards the next academic year, it is also tinged with some sadness as we say goodbye to our amazing Year Sixes. They have made us so proud, with their commitment, hard work and resilience throughout their time with us, but especially this year as they prepared for their SATs. I speak for all of our staff, when I wish each and everyone one of them the very best next year, wherever the next step in their education is. You will always be welcome back here at Penryn Primary Academy.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your continued support. It is by working in partnership with you, that we are able to support all of our pupils to fulfil their potential.

Finally, I would like to wish you all an enjoyable, restful summer holidays. We are looking forward to welcoming you back on Wednesday 6th September.

Best wishes,
Mr Lee

Useful Reminders

We love to celebrate our exciting learning taking place in school on our social media feeds. Please can we remind our families that, in line with our social media policy, we never put a child's name alongside their picture. Please can we ask you to support us with this and do not put children's names in the comments section. Thank you for your support with this.
School Uniform

You will have all received a letter following the school uniform survey completed in the spring term. Our uniform page on the school website will be updated during the summer holiday. We are excited to be planning more 'pre-loved' uniform events during the next academic year - these will be advertised on social media as well as though school emails/texts!

As the summer holidays approach, I'm sure a lot of us will be heading to the beach. Please take some time to read the advice from the RNLI on how to stay safe near the water.
