Working together to make a positive difference for every child.

A warm welcome


All children who enter Francis Askew Primary School are treated as very special individuals.

They are given every opportunity to succeed and whatever talents they have will be nurtured.

Your child will receive a first class education, the curriculum being designed to appeal to all children, exciting and innovative, but underpinned by the basic skills of literacy and numeracy.

I hope that, as you view our website you will get some idea of what our school is all about, however, to fully understand what Francis Askew has to offer your child, your family and your community please come into school and talk to staff and pupils, and get a real feel for the place.

To enable your child to succeed, it is essential that we work in partnership with you. I am always pleased to meet with parents so please make an appointment if you wish to discuss anything with me.

Our goal is to make sure your child is happy and achieves their true potential.

We, at Francis Askew Primary School, look forward to welcoming you and your child into our community.
