Welcome to Percy Shurmer Academy (DLB)
We are very pleased to welcome you and your family to Percy Shurmer Primary Academy. We truly believe that we are a remarkable school!
At Percy Shurmer we have a dedicated, enthusiastic and talented team of staff. Everyone is committed to ensure that all children at Percy achieve their very best academically but also have access to wide-ranging opportunities that encourage aspiration. We have camping trips, visits to the seaside, curriculum days, outdoor learning and much more! Our Deaf Learning Base is an integral part of our school and all our pupils benefit from our inclusive environment. We were proud to be recognised a Centre of Excellence for Inclusion recently and enjoy sharing our good practice with other schools.
At the heart of our curriculum is our belief that physical and mental well being is vital. Pupils access specialist PE provision alongside a vast array of additional sporting clubs and competitions. We have been awarded the Gold Artsmark in recognition of our enriched curriculum, which includes working alongside the Birmingham Hippodrome, artists in residence, Birmingham Royal Ballet, The Royal Shakespeare Company, the list could go on and on.
Most importantly, pupils are happy at Percy and are Big Hearted. They support local charities and food banks, work alongside the local community volunteering in projects such as 'Adopt a street ' and know what it means to be an active, positive member of society.
We are incredibly proud to announce that Percy Shurmer has been awarded FLAGSHIP status for the IQM award.
This award recognises that Percy Shurmer is a unique school that has held IQM Centre of Excellence status for at least 3 years; and played a strong leadership role in developing inclusion best practice across a network of schools.
