Our School Ethos
Successfully eliminate children's barriers to learning, ensuring they have the opportunity for their very own Best Future!
Best Futures Specialist School is surrounded by fields, trees and nature. We are based in the quiet village of Aylesby, North East Lincolnshire. Our bespoke, pupil focused approach for children between 5 and 11 years old aims to engage each pupil into positive learning experiences, developing communication, a range of physical activities and building friendships.
We have 3 main classrooms, Treetops, Willow and Oak. Inspired by nature and the environment around us, we embrace our countryside setting and care for our local area.

The importance of hygiene
Personal hygiene is the most important way we can tackle COVID-19, especially washing hands more; and the catch it, bin it, kill it strategy for those with coughs and sneezes.
Wash your hands more often for 20 seconds with soap and hot water.
In addition to handwashing before eating and after sneezing, you should also wash hands after using toilets and after travelling on public transport.

BOOTS PHARMACY SAFE SPACES
Lyndsey Dearlove, Head of the UK SAYS NO MORE Campaign at Hestia said:
“ By creating this safe space in Boots pharmacies, we hope many will be able to safely access support while following Government guidelines. We hope more pharmacies will follow Boots UK’s lead and join the Safe Space initiative. Although we are in a period of lockdown and isolation, our message to victims is that domestic abuse services are open and we can help you.”
You can read the full article here, on the Boots website:
On 1st May 2020, Boots UK announced that victims of domestic abuse will be able to access safe spaces at Boots pharmacy consultation rooms across the country, where they can contact specialist domestic abuse services for support and advice.
Whilst social distancing measures are continuing, it becomes more difficult and restrictive for victims to reach out for support.
