A message from

Our Headteacher

It is with great pleasure that I say hello to you on behalf of the Pupils, Staff and Governors of our school. I thoroughly enjoy working at Featherstone Academy and I am very proud of the improvements made at our School over the last few years and look forward to sharing these with you. At Featherstone Academy every child is treated as an individual and valued as such. We treat all children and their families equally and value their support and contribution to the school family. In short every child really does matter. High self esteem is encouraged, high expectations, standards and values are demanded and progress and achievement are positively monitored and celebrated. We believe that all children can achieve and that no child should ever be left behind. Featherstone Academy has many qualities, the most important of these being a dedicated and caring staff who share a wealth of experience and who are totally committed to ensuring that the children in our care get a good deal in all areas of learning. In addition we have excellent facilities and enjoy support from the community at large. These factors help us to provide the highest standards of education for your child. In partnership with parents we strive to ensure continued academic success and develop personal qualities in pupils of which we can be proud. Our curriculum, whilst complying with National Curriculum, is skills based focusing on teaching children to be outstanding learners, providing exciting and challenging learning opportunities steeped in real life experiences. We seek to provide every opportunity for children to apply Literacy, Numeracy and Information technology skills across their learning in addition to co-operative group work and presentation skills. We want all children to achieve the highest possible standards and make maximum progress in relation to their prior learning. We want children to enjoy and value learning, to question and explore, to acquire positive attitudes, behaviour and personal beliefs and gain independence so that they become lifelong learners. I would love to share my school with you, we encourage parents to come into school on many occasions and are always willing to show prospective parents around. We are all very proud of our school and the journey we have been on.

WORLD BOOK DAY

Thu 04th March

On Thursday 4th March it is World Book Day and we will be celebrating by having a ‘Dress as Your Favourite Book Character’ at home or in school. Here are some ideas to help you create your own costume. We are mindful shops are shut this year, so it doesn’t have to be anything grand, just something big or small that represents a loved book character.

RED NOSE DAY

Fri 19th March

This year, we thought we could all dress up as the Superheroes we are. We appreciate things are tough at the moment and we stress it doesn’t have to be a bought costume just use your imagination! (or red nose merchandise if that’s what you have) We are suggesting a £1 donation which can be made via ParentPay which will be set up nearer the date.
