My name is Julia Sandiford-Mitchell and I am the Headteacher of Shawclough Primary School. I have been here for five years and I love it.
I love it because the children are fantastic and the staff are amazing. It makes me feel very proud to be part of a community where everyone is valued and cared for to the best of our abilities.
Our children thrive in a caring atmosphere that enables them to learn effectively. This can be seen not only in English and Maths but also in Art, Music, History, Geography and all the subjects and themes that we teach.
Our children have amazing adventures at places like Robinwood, Healey Dell, the beach, the Sea life centre and the zoo.
We also have visitors into school to support our learning such as Peso's, Road safety, and the fire brigade, to name but a few.
We have lots of links with local high schools and Falinge Park High School in particular have helped us to investigate 'alien landings' on our school field.
I hope you enjoy looking at our ever-growing website. Any questions we haven't answered for you please give me a ring on 01706 647991.
