Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to Freeman’s Endowed Church of England Junior Academy, as Principal it is a privilege to give you an insight into the fantastic experiences and adventures that our children will encounter during their time with us.

At Freeman’s we aim to create strong, positive relationships and partnerships with every member of our community, staff, Governors, parents/carers and children. Our ethos is centred around our six Christian Values: Faith, Aspirations, Resilience, Forgiveness, Respect and Honesty.

We strive to create a learning environment that will inspire, motivate, stimulate and encourage our children through their own learning journey, a place where children can spread their wings and fly, having the opportunities to strive to be the best that they can be.

Thank you for visiting our website and I look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Spelling bee!

This afternoon, the children have been trying out lots of different spelling activities as part of our spelling fun afternoon. Each class held a competition and the finalists competed against each other in a spelling bee. Miss Ellwood chose some difficult words but the children were fantastic. We had one winner from Lower Key Stage and one winner from Upper Key Stage pictured below. Well done Sennen and Euan!

New Term

Welcome back everyone. It was so nice to see the children this morning and we have already had a busy start to the term. We are focusing on spellings this term by introducing new initiatives to support the children, this mornings assembly was fantastic and the spellings were really hard …. thank you Miss Ellwood!!
The children will hopefully be coming home telling you about new spelling games and activities that they have started to play in morning and afternoon registration.

Gold Mentions

It was lovely to see so many parents at Gold Mentions this morning and to share all of our children’s successes. There are many things that the children and our staff have to be proud of and most importantly being a member of the Freeman’s family we have.

I wish you all a lovely Easter break with your families, rest up and I look forward to seeing you all back ready to make yourself and others proud on Tuesday 17th April.

School Closure

After looking at the forecast for Wellingborough and with several more yellow and red warnings being issued we decided to have the area accessed early in order to give parents as much notice as possible for tommorow.

To ensure the safety of our children and staff and with more dangerous conditions expected on the roads and paths tomorrow both myself and Mrs Campbell from St Barnabas have decided to close both schools tomorrow.

This decision has not been taken lightly as we both prefer to have our children in school learning however on this occasion the safety of all is paramount, including that of our parents who bring the children to school.

Have a good weekend, stay safe and warm. We will see you all Monday

Weather Watching

Dear Parents
As you are aware the snow and windy weather is due to continue into the weekend. With that in mind I will be assessing the conditions early tomorrow morning and then discussing with Mrs Campbell at St Barnabas whether our schools will be open. I will post on here, Facebook and pass the information Northampton County Council to publish. So please keep an eye of those forums.

SATS EVENING POSTPONED

Due to the terrible winter conditions and in the interests of health and safety, tonight’s Year 6 SATs information evening has been postponed.  We will keep you updated about when it can be rescheduled.  Please stay safe and warm.

Dear Parents/carers
