Taxal and Fernilee CE Primary School

Message from the Headteacher

Dear Parents, Carers and Families,

I am really proud to welcome you to Taxal and Fernilee Church of England Primary School. I hope that this website provides you with all the information you need about our school and demonstrates how our core values and beliefs underpin everything we do here. 

If you choose to send your child to Taxal and Fernilee, we will go "above and beyond" to give them a great start in life. We offer an excellent standard of education that equips our children with the tools they need for the next stage in their life journey.  

Our results are consistently above the national average in reading, writing and maths, but we recognise that education is about so much more than academic achievement. We have an exciting enrichment curriculum that develops the core values of Strength, Compassion, Respect, Integrity, Peace and Tenacity. We also involve the children in experiences that broaden their cultural awareness and give them a deeper understanding of the world around them.

We have a very experienced teaching staff and all the adults in school are caring and sensitive to the needs of our children. We look for the talent in every child and ensure that everyone is included and no one is left behind.

It is a delight to be part of this school and to come in everyday to the happy, smiling faces of the children (and the staff!).  Each week holds new adventures and I hope this website gives a flavour of the many activities and opportunities that our children experience while they are with us. 

Please feel free to contact me and meet me in person. I love showing people around the school, as we have such a lot to celebrate. 


With best wishes,

Mike Lynch (Headteacher)
