Nova Primary Academy is an ambitious mainstream 4-11 primary school with an inclusive Deaf Hub. The Hub is funded by the High Needs Block and has high needs places for eight pupils. It is also a centre of expertise, providing outreach, training and support for schools who have Deaf pupils on roll throughout the City.

Our ethos is one of calm, purposeful learning, within a harmonious and inclusive community, which we are proud to serve. Currently, there are 370 pupils on roll in two form entry classes, of which 12% have SEND (of whom 20 have EHCPs), 41% are eligible for free school meals and 46% are pupil premium.

We are located within the bustling city of Peterborough and enjoy direct rail links with London. Peterborough is known for its diverse and inclusive culture which is something we celebrate throughout our school; with 28% of our pupils having English as an additional language. We are proud to serve the families of South Bretton and western Peterborough.

We have high expectations for all our pupils and staff, and consider our families to be partners, recognising the vital role that they play. We want to work together as a team, to fully realise the potential of all of our children.

We are on a mission to create a school which enables all pupils to believe that anything is possible and that there are no limits to their potential and achievements.

We work closely with our four Trust schools (Jack Hunt School, Longthorpe Primary School, Ravensthorpe Primary School and Thorpe Primary School), as all schools are within a maximum 15-minute walking distance from each other, which allows us to work collaboratively with our peers across both primary and secondary settings. We are all proud members of Peterborough Keys Academies Trust.

We have recently completed works on refreshing the front façade of our school building, as well as making improvements to our general classrooms and facilities. We benefit from wide outdoor spaces, including a luxurious school field and dedicated play areas and outdoor learning environments. Due to the locality of Jack Hunt School and Ravensthorpe Primary School, our pupils are able to benefit from the Forest School environments located at the two school sites.

We welcome new colleagues to join our dedicated team, who will bring energy, optimism and a drive to build dreams for our pupils.

Nova; a burst of light and energy in a star
