Welcome to Hucklow Primary School

As the Executive Headteacher, I am pleased to welcome you to Hucklow Primary School. I hope you enjoy visiting the website and find the information useful. The website should help you, whether you are looking for term dates, to see what is happening in school or if you just want to get an insight into life at Hucklow Primary School.

Hucklow and Beck Primary Schools are joined as Multi Academy Trust called Cascade Academy.  The schools have one board of Trustees but their own individual Governing Body and an Executive Headteacher. I also work across Whiteways and Owler Brook Primaries. This is an exciting time as all four local schools begin to work together.  I will spend time in each school every week so if you ever need to see me I will be available. We are planning for the schools to do lots of fun and exciting things together over the year.

Our aim is to provide a high quality education for all with a broad and balanced curriculum. We want children to be excited about their learning and to enjoy coming to school. Our curriculum is thematic, with themes that change every term. All subjects link wherever possible to a theme making the learning journey seamless. Learning is brought to life by the experience of a visit or a special visitor coming into school. We firmly believe that learning is a journey and we aim to create memorable experiences that accelerate children’s understanding and achievements.

Should you wish to discuss anything further please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Sue Bridges

Executive Headteacher

 

Year 6 Leaver’s 

Dear Our Fantastic Year 6 Pupils,

 

Well done for being a fantastic year group. We have had some brilliant moments in the 7 months we were in Year 6 and you have achieved so much in such difficult circumstances. We have been on a journey that nobody before us will have experienced before. You have done us all proud. You are all truly remarkable and have been an amazing year group to be part of.

Our visit to the York Dungeon was also a memorable moment for lots of us. Many of us conquered fears and will stand out as one of the best visits we have ever been involved in as a team of staff. You have been an absolute credit to us wherever we have been and whatever we have done.

We wish you all the best for your move to your respective secondary schools, we are certain that you will continue to achieve and be a credit to yourselves, your parents and Hucklow Primary School.

 

Aim high, stay safe!

 

Love from

Team Year 6 & All the staff at Hucklow
