Welcome to The Friars Primary School website. We are incredibly proud of our children and our community and hope that this is demonstrated by the wide range of activities shown on our Twitter feed and Facebook Group.

Our children are at the heart of this school and we put their needs first in all instances. We provide them with a rich and varied curriculum, wonderful learning and enrichment opportunities outside of the classroom and a safe, nurturing space. Children at our school are taught to be respectful to all others and this is demonstrated by our calm, learning-focused classes.

I have now been head teacher at The Friars for the last three years and standing outside the front gates, seeing the smiles on the children walking into the building is still my favourite time of the day, closely followed by seeing the excellent teaching in classrooms. The children and adults at The Friars are a joy to work with and make up this brilliant community.

As Headteacher, I am passionate about ensuring that all children are given the opportunities to learn, thrive and enjoy; this is seen every single day.

I look forward to welcoming you to our community.

Mr M Earnshaw
