Who we are 

Welcome to Hook Lane Primary School,

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.

As part of the Maritime Academy Trust, we also strive for success through the Maritime behaviours:



School Council

At Hook Lane, we are proud to have pupil representatives who promote our school vision and ethos within school and within our local community. 

Our school council members are elected by their peers and are thus encouraged to voice the opinions and ideas of their fellow pupils, to promote a school community which fosters curiosity and develops school-wide collaboration.

Our school council aims to encourage:

  • Representation of our school ethos and values
  • A safe, happy and fair learning environment
  • A structured opportunity for pupils to learn problem-solving skills
  • Responsibility towards the school and our local community
