Welcome to the Parish Church of Mayfield. We are in a beautiful part of Staffordshire, very close to the market town of Ashbourne.
There has been a church in Mayfield for over a thousand years. Today we are an active church with close links with Henry Prince School, the Church Aided primary school in Mayfield. We also have a busy Sunday School for children from three years. Many events take place throughout the year.
- Our school, Henry Prince First School, is faced with closure due to lack of government funding. It is a good school (according to pupils, parents and Ofsted) but due to its small size it is under-funded. The governors are consulting with the local community - please get involved if you can. Two petitions have been set up which you could sign - one to Staffordshire County Council and one at 38 degrees. But what it really needs is just a few more pupils!
You need to make your views known as soon as possible to Mr C Kinman (the chair of governors) at [email protected] or by writing to him at Henry Prince School, Main Road, Mayfield, DE6 2LB. You could also write to the MP, Andrew Griffiths. Please also attend the public meeting on 22 November.
- Visit Henry Prince School - their open day is Thursday 16th November between 10 and 12. The PTFA will provide refreshments and will be there to chat about the school. More info...
- Protest against the closure of Henry Prince School - Wednesday 15th November, 9am at Staffordshire County Council buildings, Stafford. More info...
- Latest Henry Prince School Ofsted inspection (Oct 17) says
"This school continues to be good."
"The needs of pupils across the school are well catered for in a warm and nurturing environment. This is particularly true for those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, including social, emotional and mental health needs."
"Pupils talked enthusiastically about residential trips, playing a musical instrument, taking part in sports activities and learning French."
