On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors of Ferndown First School, I would like to welcome you and your family to our school and website.

This is designed to provide you with helpful information about learning and opportunities at our school.

At Ferndown First School, we are committed to fostering a love of learning and ensuring our children meet their potential. We want all the children to make progress, achieve and develop as confident individuals who are able to live a safe, healthy and fulfilling life. We will encourage them to be responsible citizens who can make a positive contribution to society.

We have developed a modern, creative and personalised curriculum which prepares children for the future, supports and encourages them to aspire to achieve their dreams, together with encouraging respect and care for each other. Staff are dedicated to providing a stimulating, exciting learning environment where everyone feels valued.

Our impressive school premises enable us to offer facilities beyond what you may expect in a first school setting. We also have extensive grounds which provide many opportunities for play and ‘out of class activities’.

We value highly the partnership between home and school and encourage all parents to take an active part in their children’s education. The partnership between school staff, parents, governors and other stakeholders is an essential one. Children are at the heart of all we do and their achievements are very important.

We look forward to forming a successful partnership with you in what must be considered one of the most important stages in your child’s life. We recognise this and will endeavour to make the next few years as rewarding and as positive as possible. We will be asking for your support and there will be plenty of opportunities for you to become more involved in school life.

You are most welcome to visit our school and we invite you to telephone the school office to make an appointment.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school community.

Mr Sean Watts
