Welcome to Howden-le-Wear Primary School
I hope that our website provides you with a comprehensive introduction to our values, expectations and way of working. Ofsted (January 2015) said that Howden-le-Wear Primary ‘is an ‘Outstanding’ school.’ We agree. We place a strong emphasis on working hard, supporting one another and good standards of behaviour and courtesy. We uphold the British Values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.
We are passionate about learning and strive to instil in our young people a love and excitement for learning that will stay with them for the rest of their lives and we feel this is articulated through our Mission Statement:
To promote high achievement and a love of learning so that each and every child can build a successful future. Howden le Wear Primary School – Building Futures.
We have a fantastic staff team in school with a strong commitment to high quality teaching and learning. We believe in the development of the ‘whole child’ as an individual, who will leave our school with the skills and qualities needed to become a responsible global citizen in an ever changing world.
We aim to never be complacent, and welcome feedback via the Online Feedback Form or Contact Us. We try to respond rapidly and openly to concerns and criticism.
Thank you very much for your interest in our work and we very much hope you enjoy exploring our website.
Mr Chris Baines
