Hook Lane Primary School

Encouraging Fearless Learners

The children are really getting stuck into the new academic year and enjoying their new topics. When I walk around the school I see engaged, enthusiastic teachers and children! Thank you to all parents who have attended our parent workshops so far which have been really helpful and informative in knowing what is coming up for your children this term. For those parents who were unable to attend you will find presentations under the parent tab or in your child's Year group page.   


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.

On August 6th Stagecoach bus company along with Sovereign recovery company were able to deliver Hook Lane Primary School's very own double decker bus! It has been a long road getting to this point and we still have lots and lots to do to make the bus into a magical and exciting place for the children to enjoy reading. So many thanks to all the people who have helped us to get this far: to Mr Czyz for organising the planning permission, concrete foundations and electricity supply; to the PTA who have tirelessly raised funds and to Phil Wilson, an ex-Hook Lane parent and Stagecoach bus driver, for helping us to secure the bus. Thanks of course to all of you for attending PTA events and contributing towards this project.


We have heard that we came second in the Tesco 'Bags of Help' scheme, winning £2000 towards the renovation work!
