Athersley North Primary School is situated in the heart of Athersley on the outskirts of Barnsley. Our mission statement emphasises the importance of the community to the school and the school to the community.
Athersley North Primary has the facilities to meet our children’s next steps in learning, as well as providing advice and support to parents and families and is fully accessible for disabled children and adults.
We are committed to providing an environment which values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors regardless of their educational, physical, sensory, social, spiritual, emotional and cultural needs.
Collaboration and support are themes which run through our school at every level. This ethos is reciprocated by our pupils who act as school mentors, reading buddies and playtime leaders whilst also collaborating in our school parliament to effect changes in school. As a school, we understand that progress can only be achieved through a motivated staff-team who share a collective passion for improving the life chances of the children and families within our community. The dedication of our team is reflected in our enthusiastic and confident pupils, supportive parents and active Governors and together they contribute to a thriving school community.
OUR VISION & MISSION
“Athersley North Primary School will be at the heart of the community from which will emerge confident and skilled individuals of the future.”
To achieve this we will work in partnership with parents and the community to develop the full potential of each pupil, within a secure and caring environment.
We will promote and develop partnerships with peers, parents, and the local and wider community, recognising the important role they play in the child’s education.
We will ensure that all pupils develop a sense of value, self-respect and responsibility that will enable them to live adult lives at home, at work, at leisure and within a technological, global community.
We will set high standards and expectations of conduct from adults and pupils, and of teaching and children’s learning. Thus helping them to achieve their full potential, becoming lifelong learners and productive members of society.
