Hook Lane Primary School

Encouraging Fearless Learners

The year has already got off to an amazing start with lots of visits and extra-curricular activities. STEAM Week really challenged our children designing and making bridges developing their problem solving skills in engineering. We look forward to seeing parents and carers at our up and coming work shops where you can learn all about how to support your children at home.   

Welcome Message

As the Head Teacher of Hook Lane Primary School I, alongside the Staff and Children would like to extend a warm welcome you to all. We hope that our website will enable you to find out more about the work of our school and the values we share.

At Hook Lane we aim to secure an environment where children have confidence in themselves whilst valuing the opinions, strengths and cultures of others. We believe that children learn most effectively through active participation in the learning process so that they build their knowledge through understanding. We also recognise that children come into school at different starting points and a real strength at Hook Lane is enbabling all our pupils to make good progress at their level. 

We want to foster curiosity in all our children and a love of learning so that they are able to take on new challenges and make good progress.

We encourage all children at Hook Lane Primary School to strive to achieve their aspirations through the use of praise, reward and by setting realistic yet challenging expectations. We want our children to have the skills necessary to contribute to the wider community and become lifelong learners.

We respect and value the support of parents in the education of their children and share your expectations for your child: to be happy, safe and to learn well at our school.

Consultation for Staff, Parents & Carers: Proposed conversion of Hook Lane Primary to an Academy as part of the Maritime Academy Trust 

Two parents’ information meetings will be held on Thursday 13th December at 3.30pm and 7.00pm. At these meetings, you will have the opportunity to ask questions of Nick Osborne, the CEO of Maritime Academy Trust, Headteacher Mrs Cummings, Deputy Headteacher Mrs Sheekey, the Chair and Vice Chair of Governors as well as other school Governors. 



This half term, we have been working with Arty Party (an arts and craft company that we have been fortunate to work with before) to create a wonderful mural for our playground wall.

A theme of 'World Sports' was chosen by the children. The school council then voted for their favourite three designs, These were then used as inspiration for the final piece of art. Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed working alongside the artists.

I am sure you agree that the mural looks amazing!
