Epiphany Praise 6th January 2020 at Holy Trinity Church
It was lovely to welcome all the children back to school and start the new year by attending our Epiphany Praise Service at Holy Trinity Church. The Year 2 children revised their roles from the Nativity Plays as Mary & Joseph and the Three Wise Men. Our Head Boy & Head Girl read beautiful prayers and the children enjoyed singing Carols about this special time.
The children learned about the meaning of Epiphany and how Jesus, as God's Greatest Gift, was born for everyone!
Happy New Year 2020 from everyone at school
Merry Christmas from everyone at school
“Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour which is Christ the Lord”
May the light of the Christ child fill your lives and bring you all peace this Christmas time and for evermore.

School vision and values
‘Let knowledge be grounded in faith’
Freckleton Church of England Primary is a welcoming and caring Christian school, where everyone can learn and grow as part of God’s family.
Inspiring all to respect themselves and others, living life in its fullness; dedicated to delivering engaging learning in collaboration with our church, our families and the community.
Forgiveness, Friendship, Hope, Perseverance, Respect, Responsibility, Thankfulness, Trust and Truthfulness
Mrs R S Ainsworth
Dear Parents & Carers,
Freckleton Church of England Primary School is situated at the heart of the village and we are proud to serve the local community of Freckleton. The school was founded in 1839 and the Christian principles on which it was founded 180 years ago are still important today as we continue to enjoy close links with Holy Trinity Church.
The school badge has a blue shield, with a gold border, and a golden anchor, on which is the motto: ‘In fide Scientia Consistat’ – ‘Let knowledge be grounded in faith’. The anchor is the symbol of Christian hope and reminds us of Freckleton’s historic connections with boat building and the sea whilst the motto reminds us of our firm foundation in God's love for a bright future.
We are a child-centred happy school where children enjoy learning and playing together. We recognise that every child is unique and all staff work hard to ensure that learning is personalised so that it meets the needs of individuals. Our aim is that each and every child leaves our school with the key basic skills to equip them for further learning – in particular good reading, writing and mathematical skills. We can therefore provide a caring and inclusive environment for all children.
However we not only aim to teach children to the highest educational standards but we teach them about God, life, friendships, how to treat others and how to carry themselves through life as kind and thoughtful people.
We are also able to offer a range of extracurricular opportunities – and are always open to further ideas! Children are always encouraged to share their talents whatever they may be. We provide many opportunities for children to excel on the sporting field and to learn a range of musical instruments.
Thank you for taking the time to look at our website. As a school we are pleased you are looking at or have chosen us to help and guide your child on their learning journey. I hope this website will provide you with some of the information you will need, however, please do not hesitate to contact me for any further information or support.
I would love the opportunity to show you round our excellent facilities and look forward to you becoming part of our family.
