Welcome to Heronshaw School

Heronshaw may be a small school, but it has a big personality where children develop as individuals learning through our set of Heronshaw values. In January 2019, Heronshaw joined IFtL (Inspiring Futures through Learning), a growing academy trust in Milton Keynes. As part of this family of schools we continue to develop innovative and inspirational learning experiences for the children. Staff collaborate across the trust schools, sharing best practice, moderating children's work and learning from experts in education.

Together we aim to maintain the school’s vision of “Inspire, Grow, Achieve” this has been made achievable through our open door policy and strong links with the community, while ensuring the highest possible standards.

Our children start their journey in Foundation, where they are immersed in learning experiences both inside and outside. A rich learning environment is developed by skilled staff who focus on the interests of the children. From Foundation, the children move into Key Stage 1 where their reading, writing and maths skills are developed further alongside the full range of subjects, such as computing, art, science, history, geography and much more.

The school continues to deliver a robustly-planned and child-centred curriculum that both challenges and engages children in their learning while deepening and extending their knowledge. We place language at the heart of learning, supporting children with developing vocabulary that enables them to access all subjects.

“Pupils enjoys coming to Heronshaw because of the school's welcoming and nurturing atmosphere. Leaders have high expectations of what pupils can achieve both academically and personally. Pupils rise to this challenge. They love to learn and are eager do well."  Ofsted 2021

I look forward to welcoming you to our school.
