About Francis Askew Primary School

Francis Askew Primary School is a slightly larger than average sized primary school with 324 pupils, 60 of which are part-time in the nursery, situated in the west of the city of Kingston upon Hull, in the community of Gypsyville.

The school has a 39 place FTE nursery in the Foundation unit. Numbers are increasing and the school will be rebuilt under the government PSBP scheme within the next two years, for 420 full time pupils plus a 39 place nursery.

The school was judged to be good by Ofsted in September 2010 and was above the floor standards in 2013. Key areas for improvement are Grammar, punctuation and spelling and maths across the school. Phonics teaching and reading are strengths in the school.

The percentage of pupils eligible for pupil premium is well above the local and national averages. There is a free breakfast club in the morning from 7.50 am until 8.50am, which is very popular and numbers attending are increasing. Children enjoy the club because of the exciting curriculum planned for them which is led by their interests and local, national and international events.

The number of pupils with English as an additional language has increased in recent years. The figure is now 18% which is just below the national average, although the school supports a total of 20 discrete language groups. These children do well in the school and learn English very quickly.

The school has the International Schools’ Award, the Sportsmark, level 1 Rights Respecting Award, the Healthy School Enhanced award, and the Artsmark, and is an Eco school.

There are a number of extra-curricular clubs across the year including football, rugby, netball, multi-skills, dodgeball, cookery, art club, choir, dance, Lego club and reading club for children across the school. The school has taken part in the last two years of the Hull area Rock Challenge dance competition at Hull Ice Arena and also won the National Inclusion Award for this.

The intervention programmes Every Child a Reader and Every Child a Counter take place in KS1 and are both key drivers to school improvement. The school is a teaching school for ECC across Hull and East Riding and also a number of other maths interventions, including Numicon.
