Welcome to Joseph Turner Primary School


I am extremely proud to be the Head Teacher of Joseph Turner Primary School. We strongly believe that children and their families are at the heart of everything we do. In recent years our results have been higher than ever. Children progress at our school faster than the national rate. All of our staff are dedicated and are passionate about raising standards and improving the life chances of our children.  It’s massively rewarding to work alongside my colleagues and pupils at this school, and in return, you can expect my very best.


We are a rapidly improving school with a new and ambitious senior leadership team.


Ofsted (Jan 2014) judged us as ‘Good’ in all areas. Our aim now is to be ‘Outstanding’.


“Pupils’ achievement is good. They make good progress, especially in mathematics, from well below expected starting points.”

“The Head Teacher, senior team and governing body take a strong lead in driving improvement. Rigorous checks on teaching, with good training and support where it is needed.”                   Ofsted Jan 2014


Parent’s comment, “My child is always eager to come to school and sees every day as an adventure.”


Eager to Learn, Proud to Achieve


We pride ourselves on our partnerships in promoting learning and wellbeing, our engagement with parents and carers and our effective guidance and support both academically and pastorally.


At Joseph Turner we promise you a nurturing ethos where children are ‘eager to learn and proud to achieve’. We have high expectations of all our children and we encourage them to inspire each other through their own aspirations, thirst for knowledge and love of learning so that all children reach their full potential.
Our aim is to be the best school for our pupils so that we can equip them with the skills, knowledge and attitudes to become lifelong learners. We are very proud of Joseph Turner Primary School and we encourage you to visit us so that you can see us in action and we can answer any questions you may have.


Mr R.Workman
