Welcome To Percy Shurmer Academy

Percy Shurmer Academy is part of the Academies Enterprise Trust. 

We aim for all children and adults to flourish at Percy Shurmer Academy.  What this means to us is that they:

  • gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to achieve all they can
  • develop a love of learning and enjoy their time at the Academy
  • make friends and show respect to others
  • broaden their experiences and understanding of the wider world

We will work closely with families, the Academies Enterprise Trust, the local community, our network of schools and Academies in this shared endeavour.

UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award

Percy Shurmer Academy is working towards becoming a UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award school.

The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, nondiscrimination and participation. The RRSA seeks to put the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school’s ethos and culture to improve well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. A rights-respecting school is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted. Young people and the school community learn about children’s rights by putting them into practice every day.
New Library Areas

This year we have developed two new library areas in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.  We have worked with the children and our artist in residence Nicola Shaw to design areas that are fun, engaging and inspiring.  We have also purchased lots of new books!  

Our children have the opportunity to visit the library weekly and take books out to read in school and at home.
