ASPIRE, BELIEVE, SUCCEED
Featherstone Primary aspires to equip every child with the skills they need for lifelong learning by developing confident, ambitious learners, who take ownership of their learning and are proud of their achievements as they grow.
At Featherstone Primary we believe that learning should be exciting, purposeful and challenging. Our school aims to inspire and prepare every child to have high expectations of themselves and others. We will achieve this by providing a creative and challenging curriculum that motivates and encourages all children to reach their potential. This will be balanced with personal choice, sport and creativity so that each can flourish within a safe, but challenging framework designed to specifically fit their needs. We will prepare our children to encounter opportunities with resilience, perseverance and self-determination and encourage them to grow and become responsible, independent learners. We will work closely with the children, their families and the local community fostering positive, supportive relationships to benefit all pupils of the school. We are very determined for all our pupils and believe that our emphasis on high-quality teaching is a key feature of our success.
