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.
Please help us in sharing simple and effective hand hygiene messages:
The e-Bug project is led by Public Health England and has a dedicated webpage for learning resources on hand washing and respiratory hygiene.
