Academy Times

Newquay Junior Academy is open for access and engagement with parents before school from 8.30 am – 8.40 am. Parents are welcome to take their child into the classroom and engage in the first part of our academy day to develop parent/teacher relationships.

The academy day finishes at 2:55 pm and parents should collect their child from the playground.

This amounts to 31 hours and 25 minutes per week.
