A Message from the Headteacher




Hello, and welcome to the Roebuck School.


Thank you for visiting our website. We are delighted you wish to know more about the life of our very busy and exciting school.


The Roebuck Primary School is situated north of Preston, at the junction of Blackpool Road and Inkerman Street in Ashton. The school is popular and has served a wide catchment area since its opening in 1907. 


We admit up to 45 pupils annually into the Foundation Stage, (reception classes) and we currently have mixed age range classes throughout Key Stage 2.  We are proud of our Nursery, which admits 26 pupils on a part-time basis each year.


Interested? Then please contact us to either request additional information or to make an appointment to visit us (Tel: 01772 729337 and ask to speak with the school's bursar). Our friendly and supportive staff will make you feel  welcome. It is important to us that, in making a decision about your child's school, you are confident that we can provide, in partnership with our parents, opportunities for children in our care to enjoy their learning, responsibilities and experiences that will prepare them for adult life.


We look forward to meeting you!


Mrs J Alexander-Steele

School Aims

We aim:

To be an inclusive school and to ensure that all learners are given equality of opportunity and treated fairly in all aspects of our work.

To promote and achieve high standards for all by providing teaching and learning of the highest quality.

To treat learners as individuals and to differentiate teaching and learning to take account of their individual and special needs.

To provide well for learners’ social, spiritual, moral and cultural needs using values based teaching. We focus on six key values which underpin everything we do: honesty, kindness, tolerance, responsibility, co-operation and perseverance.

To provide well for learners’ care, health and safety.

To ensure that all learners benefit from a rich, broad, balanced curriculum presented in an interesting, exciting and imaginative manner with lots of opportunities for first-hand experience, practical work, investigation and learning through play.

To give responsibility to learners and develop their self-confidence by contributing to the community.

To make parents and the wider community equal partners with the school and to involve them in the evaluation of its success.

To build an ethos marked by a welcoming, friendly, bright and lively happy place where learners feel secure. A school where good behaviour is expected and where learners enjoy growing up.

To make this school a place of enjoyment where success is encouraged, rewarded and celebrated.



We pledge to uphold these values during our school day.
