Be brave, be kind,
Welcome to Mawsley!
Our school opened in 2004 to serve the new Northamptonshire village of Mawsley. Since that time, I have been delighted to work with children, parents, staff, governors, and members of the local community to see the school grow from 87 pupils to the current 341 on roll.
We are pleased to be able to go the extra mile and provide our children with memorable learning experiences both in and out of school. We encourage everyone in our school family to: Be brave, be kind, be yourself.
Are you looking for a Reception Place for September 2021?
Our latest recruits to the Mawsley School Family have settled in beautifully; they’ve learned new routines, made lots of friends and are actively engaging in lots and lots of fun learning!
One of our current Reception parents shared their insight into the process:
‘I can honestly say it was the most stressful thing I have done. This huge pressure came over me and I literally lost sleep over it. Then we came to Mawsley on the last day of applications and we walked out and I burst into tears and was like ‘I will be heartbroken if he doesn’t get a place here!’
We have hands down had the best preschool and settling in experience. My mummy friends could not get over the summer school pack, the interaction with you (EYFS Lead) and the team and the whole approach. So a massive thank you to you all from my husband and I. As ** is our first to go to school it’s been such an easy experience in awful circumstances!!’
We hope you will trust us here at Mawsley with the education of your little one. To aid your decision we are sharing two insightful videos of life at ‘big school’. One video will provide a virtual tour of our school and the other will provide you with an insight into the daily life of a reception child.
We know seeing a school is an important part of the process, so we are holding school tours on Saturday 14th November, as long as government guidelines allow us. School tours are for families new to our school, we politely request that those families who already have a pupil placed with us do not request a tour.
The tour will:
Be available for adults only – restricted to two per family
Require those attending to wear a face covering
Require those attending to confirm that they do not have any symptoms or have had any symptoms in the two weeks prior to the tour related to Covid 19.
Require those attending to confirm they have not travelled to any countries that require them to self-isolate in the two weeks to the tour.
If you would like a tour, please email the school office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 01536 799182 by Wednesday 4th November. We will be in touch the week prior to 14th November to inform you of your allocated time.
We look forward to meeting you,
As the winner of a design competition, organised by YPO, a pupil won £500 worth of books for her school! These book choices are all recommended rich texts for classroom libraries in Key Stage 2, and have provided a much needed boost of excitement to our bookshelves.
As well as novels, the classrooms will all have books from the 'Greatest Stories' collection; these are stories that children's author Michael Morpurgo believes every child should know before they leave primary school. Upon seeing this array of wonderful books, the pupil who loves to read herself - said that she is particularly excited to see the children reading these new texts, as she knows that this huge selection of books will be enjoyed by so many children!
Thank you, on behalf of everybody at Mawsley School!
A day in Reception
