Mrs. Rose Ashefor


Welcome to Ferscoat Nursery and Primary School, a school where we nurture the children in our care to have a love for learning, and an understanding of how they can achieve the best in everything they do.
We develop the whole child to become an independent thinker and lifelong learner with high levels of self-respect and self-esteem so as to face the ever-changing challenges of society.
We achieve the above amongst others through:

  • Constant curriculum integrity and innovation.
  • Constant and adequate supervision of all members of staff.
  • Implementation of a child-centered educational approach that encourages the active participation of learners in class activities.
