Head Teacher’s MessageHead

Welcome to our new school website.

We are very proud of our school and the community we serve. We are a larger than average multicultural nursery and infant school in the centre of Huddersfield that serves pupils from a wide range of backgrounds.

We are deeply committed to maintaining a happy, secure and inviting environment where we celebrate the diverse, rich, racial and cultural mix of our children whilst promoting the fundamental British values of tolerance, consideration and respect for one another.

As a result all our pupils are enthusiastic, motivated and love coming to school.

Ofsted 2013

‘The school provides a warm, welcoming environment for its pupils. Parents say unanimously that their children are happy and feel safe in the school.’

‘Pupils whose circumstances might make them vulnerable , disabled pupils and those with special educational needs are extremely well supported and cared for so that they make the same good progress as their peers.’

We are all passionate about providing pupils with excellent teaching and are constantly trying to improve our provision.

Ofsted 2013

‘All school leaders are passionate in ensuring that pupils make as much progress as they are able’

‘The quality of teaching is good and occasionally outstanding. Teachers work hard to plan activities that will enthuse and motivate pupils.’

Pupils leave the school as keen, self-confident learners with the foundations of learning firmly embedded in preparation for their future school learning in KS2. Good and outstanding quality teaching and learning provides a strong foundation on which to build.

We have a broad curriculum and wide range of enrichment activities to ensure all pupils are fully engaged and can realise their full potential and develop a love for learning.

We work hard to ensure our parents/carers can be as involved as possible in their child’s school life and learning and deliver weekly ‘What we are learning in school ’ sessions to the parents of all year groups.

We welcome parents/carers into school at any time should they need any information about the school or have any concerns.

Thank you for your time
