On behalf of the children, staff, governors and trustees of Foxborough Primary School, I would like to welcome you to our school website.
I am very proud to be the Headteacher at Foxborough, supported by a highly skilled and dedicated team of teachers and support staff. The school is a one form entry primary with an integrated nursery. We are a richly diverse school community in which different languages, cultures and religions learn together in harmony.
Foxborough Primary School is a very special place, visitors comment positively about the school; from the children’s behaviour and their enthusiasm to the staff’s ongoing commitment and dedication. We understand the power of education and take very seriously our duty to give your children the best start in life. I am personally very proud to be a member of this community.
We are a friendly, caring school with high expectations for all our pupils. Our children are encouraged to explore, discover and question through a range of exciting learning opportunities both within and outside the classroom. The staff endeavour to provide a calm and stimulating environment where good behaviour and mutual respect is modelled by everyone and where everyone is valued.
The school recognises the value and uniqueness of each individual child and adult at Foxborough. We celebrate the talents and gifts of each child and enable them to develop to their full potential spiritually, morally, academically, socially and physically. Our shared motto “Ad Astra” (Latin for “Reach for the stars”) speaks of our commitment to be the best we can be and to help your children become successful and happy young people. Their learning and personal development are our driving force. Our interpretation of success extends beyond the academics and is encapsulated in the three strands of our “Mission Statement”:
• Being principled;
• Being responsible;
• Being purposeful
We continue to work in partnership with schools in the Trust, parents and the community all of which act as the driver for continuous improvement.
I hope you enjoy finding out more about our school by browsing our website. Visits are encouraged and welcomed: we would be delighted to show you around our wonderful school!
Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
