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 enabling 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.


 Mrs N Cummings Head Teacher
