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.
In 2016, 2017 and 2018 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!

At North Featherstone J & I, we believe that educating our children about being safe on-line is very important. As part of our ICT curriculum, children learn how to identify some of the risks they may encounter when on-line, and what to do to keep themselves safe. In school, we have clear rules for children and staff about using the internet, and these are displayed in every classroom. These rules are regularly discussed and referred to by class teachers when learning on-line is taking place. Click Here for more information on Safeguarding.
