About Francis Askew Primary School

Francis Askew Primary School is a slightly larger than average sized primary school with 350 pupils, with a 39 fulltime equivalent nursery, situated in the west of the city of Kingston upon Hull, in the community of Gypsyville.

Numbers are increasing and the new school,built under the government PSBP scheme opened in January 2016, for 420 full time pupils plus a 39 place nursery.

The school was judged to be good by Ofsted in September 2010. 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.
