Welcome to The Ward Jackson Way


Headteacher's Welcome

I have been headteacher at Ward Jackson for 6 years now and I am continually amazed by how incredible our children are.  I feel very humbled that I have been given the opportunity to serve them, and the wider Ward Jackson community as we strive to live  out our vision together:

The Ward Jackson Way…  

Has Jesus at the heart of it all. ​

 The Ward Jackson Way… ​

Empowers me ​

to love, ​to learn, ​to explore

As a school, we want to provide children with the very best education. To let them experience life in all its fullness. Our school is Christ-centred and our core Christian values of respect, courage, kindness, truthfulness and compassion flow through every aspect of school life. It is on this bedrock that we provide an excellent education for the children that attend our school. We want every child to feel loved and cared for; to be challenged to be the very best that they can be; to be resilient in life and learning and to recognise they are a valued member of the Ward Jackson community.

"But those that hope in the Lord will renew their strength, they will rise on wings as eagles."

It’s an exciting time to be at Ward Jackson Church of England Primary School. Please spend time browsing our website and if you would like to know more, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
