Working together to make a positive difference for every child.

A warm welcome to Francis Askew Primary School

At Francis Askew Primary School we make a positive difference to every child. Working together with parents, families and the community we create a positive, calm and nurturing environment where all members of the school community feel safe, valued and respected.

Our curriculum nurtures curiosity, builds resilience, fosters independence and encourages children to aim high in all that they do. We provide our children with wide ranging, enriching experiences, both in and out of school, and place a high value on developing and nurturing the whole child.

We ensure that children’s individual talents are celebrated and fostered in all areas of school life. We strongly believe in providing a high quality, holistic education, one which inspires a love of learning and equips our children with the skills they need for the future.

Visits to our school are warmly welcomed. We are very proud of our school and the positive difference we make to our children and families. We look forward to welcoming you and your child into our community.

We All Shine Brighter Together

Our Trust includes primary, secondary and an alternative provision school working together to provide the best learning opportunities for the pupils within our network of schools.

Each school serves its own community and has its own unique identity. Together we benefit from working in partnership, share good practice and have a joint central service support team.
