Welcome to Featherby Infant & Nursery and Junior Schools
Featherby is a partnership of two values-led community schools where everyone loves learning and being the best we can be.
We achieve the highest standards by continuously broadening our skill sets - we nurture skills for learning alongside skills for life, encouraging the children to become independant learners of the future.
We believe in encouraging independence with the ability to work collaboratively embracing known pedagogy whilst developing new models for learning using the latest technologies.
We actively equip our children with cognitive strategies which are proven to support knowledge retention. Ultimately, our children will take ownership of metacognition adopting the best strategies for them. This will support self-regulation - they will choose the strategies which work for them.
Skills will remain with us forever ensuring we are confident, curious, resilient learners – proud of who we are and optimistic about what we will achieve ensuring we are ready for the next stage of learning and the 21st Century.

We promote active partnerships: between the two schools; with parents, together with the full involvement of the local community; our fellow trust schools; and all agencies attached to Children’s Services.
Our doors are always open and our friendly staff will be happy and proud to show you around our school.
If you are interesting in viewing the school, please contact the school office to make an appointment. Contact details are on the website.
