A message from the Chair of Governors

May I take this opportunity to welcome you to Abbots Farm Junior School. Governors are extremely proud of how the school is consistently improving and this last year has been no exception.Our excellent results and the recent Ofsted inspection have resulted in our school achieving the coverted 'Outstanding' status.
 
In the last four years the governors have successfully appointed a dynamic Senior Leadership team under the leadership of the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher.  
Our school offers an engaging and exciting curriculum and all members of the school community are instrumental in driving school improvement.
 
The culture between staff and parents is very open and I would encourage you to make the most of your child’s time here by engaging as much as possible with the excellent staff we are fortunate to work with. If you wish to get involved more as a helper, a member of the PTA or as a Governor, please contact the school.
 
Mrs Lorna Smith
