With school now closed due to coronavirus, we have developed a dedicated 'Home Learning' page. You can access that page here.
We are following 'social distancing' guidance from the government. Doing so with children attending schools is challenging, but measures are in place to ensure that children maintain distance and do not put others around them at unnecessary risk.
General communication will also continue to go out to families via emails and texts.
Many thanks, Jamie Ainscow (Head of school).
Welcome from Executive Head and Head of School
Welcome to Heronshaw School. It is a school for which I am extremely proud. Over the years the team at Heronshaw has accomplished so much, most notably our Outstanding Ofsted in February 2016. Where Ofsted commented:
“Emanating from the headteacher’s strong example, staff have very high expectations of themselves and pupils. These expectations propel the work of the staff who ceaselessly strive to make the experiences pupils have, from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave, as good as they can be”
We have maintained our strong focus on children and their families, ensuring a settled a positive start to school life for each and every child. Which has ensured the best outcomes for all children.
Heronshaw has often been praised for the warm and welcoming atmosphere and for the way that staff work in partnership with parents, listening and acting on any concerns. We fully understand that happy children will always learn better and strive to ensure this will be your experience.
Heronshaw School joined IFtL (Inspiring Futures through Learning early in 2019).
At IFtL, we are committed to developing a family of schools who inspire all of our futures through learning.
Schools within our Trust share the same values and ethos; our teams are constantly in the pursuit of development and excellence everyday. We open doors to opportunity and unlock the potential of both our children and our adults so that we all develop the confidence to achieve both our independent and collective ambitions. At IFtL, we are never alone. We know we are stronger together – one united family striving for excellence for all, in everything we do.
