Josephine Butler

Welcome from the Head of Campus


Welcome to the Josephine Butler Primary Campus web page.

Our campus is situated within the Josephine Butler Campus in Ashington and serves the wards of Ashington Central, College and Hirst.  We are currently a two form entry.

The Josephine Butler Campus includes the Secondary and Primary phases and ‘The Centre’, our provision for children with profound and multiple learning difficulties.

The campus enjoys state of the art facilities, both indoors and out, supporting our provision of a stimulating and exciting learning environment for all children.

ThMrs Claire Marriott (Primary Leader)e Josephine Butler Primary phase has a dedicated team of professionals who celebrate
the uniqueness and talents of every child.  We have high expectations of behaviour and achievement in all areas and therefore focus equally on the personal, social and academic development of all of our children.

We depend on the support and cooperation of our parents and carers, in a shared responsibility, to nurture each child through their educational growth.

Our favourite book on Campus is “The Ordinary School Day” by Colin McNaughton.  This tells the story of a boy who discovers the joy and magic of learning.  Like this story, we want every child to leave our Campus at the end of every school day full of enthusiasm for learning and having extraordinary dreams.

Mrs C Marriott, Head of Campus
