Welcome to Featherstone Wood Primary School

Where our classrooms are workshops for learning


A message from the Executive Headteacher, Mrs Skeggs

Welcome to Featherstone Wood Primary School. I hope that the information on this website will give you a picture of our vision, aims and values that we uphold.

Whilst we place a great emphasis on standards of Maths, Literacy and other core subjects, we also aim to develop the whole child through our creative curriculum. Children at our school are enthusiastic, confident and independent learners, who achieve well both academically and socially.

Our School Council plays an active role in our school, where the voice of the child is paramount.

We have a range of ‘out of school hours’ provision for children, including a breakfast and after school club.

Featherstone Wood Primary School prides itself on being fully inclusive, with high expectations and aspirations for all pupils.

If you would like further information about any aspect of our school, or you would like to arrange to visit us, please contact the school office on 01438 235550.


A message from the Head of School, Mrs Newhouse

A warm wecome to Featherstone Wood. We are a one form entry primary school with a morning only Nursery but we do offer the opportunity to access 30 hours education. We have extensive grounds and a large building. 

At Featherstone Wood we have a dedicated hardworking team who are determined to provide a creative and engaging education for our pupils which fosters their inquisitiveness and independence while opening up to them all the wonders that the wider world can offer.

Our vision is to provide the tools to equip our children to be respectable, caring and honest. We encourage innovation and achieve excellence through a motivating curriculum, where high personal expectations and ambitions are the key to a lifetime of learning.

We work closely in partnership with children, families and our community to nurture, demonstrate and teach positive values to develop confident life-long learners with tolerance and understanding.

We hope you find all the information you require here and we warmly invite you to visit us so we can show off our school ‘in action’.

Dreams may start small but ambition can take them anywhere.
