Head Teacher’s Welcome


A very warm welcome to Auckley School’s website. Thank you for taking the time to visit. We are immeasurably proud of our school and of the children that attend and I feel truly privileged to be the Head Teacher . Above all else, Auckley is a happy, one- form entry school, serving the community of Auckley and beyond. We pride ourselves on our welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Auckley is a truly remarkable place to learn.

We are set in beautiful grounds with a wild flower meadow, a Forest School woodland area, flourishing allotments and a pond with fish. Our school was founded in 1876 and has a rich history that we celebrate with the children and the community. In 1973 the school moved to this site. We are very much part of the village community and have strong links with the local farm, the church and local businesses. We want our children to understand the heritage of the local area and the cultural background of where they live in order to feel passionate about their community.



Our ten school values are integral to everything that we do at Auckley; we want our children to consistently demonstrate these and to want to do their very best. These are: kindness, respect, integrity, empathy, collaboration, determination, tolerance, resilience, excellence and love.



Family is very important to us and as a small school we know our children and their families very well. We appreciate and value the support that families give us and the role that they play in enriching our children’s experiences and supporting their education. Together, everyone achieves more.



Curriculum design and high-quality teaching and learning are at the heart of everything we do. We have created a curriculum that is rich and ambitious; we want to show our children what a beautiful place the world is. But we also want our children to be able to make sense of an increasingly globalised, complex and rapidly changing world and to be able to make decisions for the right reasons and in the best interests of our community. We want our children to be aspirational about their futures, to be change makers so that they can help to create a future they want to live in. We hope that our curriculum will empower and equip all of our children with the skills to participate, challenge and reshape the world around them. We want every child to be able to think ethically and to be committed to making the world a better place.



 We have an absolute commitment to reading and our curriculum has been designed to develop a genuine love of literature in all of our children. We have a commitment to children having access to rich, beautiful texts. We make sure that our bookshelves are filled with beautiful books that are newly released along with classics that will take them to other times and places.



Our children are able to access a wealth of visits and visitors to enrich the curriculum. We have recently welcomed members of the Jewish and Sikh communities into school to visit our children along with our wonderful local Vicar, Mr Redyeoff.



Please contact the school if you require any further information not on the website or would like to visit the school. Visits are most warmly welcomed to a school that we are very proud of.
