Welcome to North Featherstone

Welcome to the North Featherstone Junior and Infant School Website. At North Featherstone J & I we offer you and your children a warm welcome to the school and hope that time spent with us is successful and enjoyable. Whether you are an existing member of the North Featherstone community, a prospective parent or just an interested visitor we hope you find the site interesting and informative.

‚Äč In 2016 and 2017 we were one of the highest performing schools in Wakefield for our Key Stage 2 results based on the new assessments; being in the top 10% of the schools for reading, writing, mathematics, grammar as well as reading, writing and mathematics combined.

Our school is continually responding and changing to offer the highest quality of education for our children. We are committed to offering our pupils a broad curriculum and the opportunity to excel academically, in sport and the arts, all within a safe and caring environment. Due to this, we are a popular and an increasingly oversubscribed school, recognised by Ofsted as being a Good Provider with Outstanding features.

North Featherstone J & I takes seriously its duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. Our Safeguarding Policy sets out the measures in place to ensure that this happens. Our policy can be found under the Safeguarding Tab.

We have a very dedicated and highly qualified group of staff and governors, who see their role very much as a partnership with you and your child. We are all determined to realise our vision of “Dream it. Believe it. Achieve it”.

Our web site is produced with the purpose of giving parents, carers and visitors information about our school. The information given is correct at the time of writing and is updated on a weekly basis. Hopefully, it will answer some of your questions and help to explain the organisation and policies of the school. The web site is not intended as a substitute for personal contact with you and we look forward to seeing you in school whenever possible. When you visit the school you will see for yourself what makes North Featherstone J & I such a special school – our pupils!


We hope you enjoy your visit!


A message from our governors

Dear Parents and Carers


My year as chair of the school's Strategic Improvement Committee is almost at an end. From September, the great governing body that has come together over the last year will fully take over their role, chaired by Denis Barry, a highly experienced governor who has worked closely with me this year. It has been great pleasure getting to know the school, its children and staff, and the community it serves. I would like to add my own congratulations to the children, and to express my gratitude to Mrs Cunnington and all the staff of the school. The great results are a testament to the hard work that goes on every day to help your children to be the best they can be. It is particularly pleasing to know that, while it is true that everyone in school is looking forward to the Summer break, they are also already focused on how to make the school even better year after year into the future.

British Values Logo Designs

Over the February half term our children were set a task to design their very own British Values logo of which eight designs were shortlisted. Two designs stood out and very clearly represented our ethos of British Values so there was only one thing to do - combine the two and produce our very own British Values logo. Below are the two winning logos and final image of the two put together.

Congratulations to Corey in Class 5 and Alfie in Class 4!
