Welcome Message

We welcome you to our school website, we hope you find all of the information that you are looking for. We are proud of our school and work hard to ensure that our school is at the heart of our community. In these difficult times it is more important than ever that our school lives up to our aims and aspirations for our children, even though the building is closed to our pupils.

We believe that the heart and substance of our school is not the building, but the people who attend it. Our dynamic learning community has not stopped just because the building is closed! We maintain our commitment to our pupils, parents and staff to ensure they are nurtured, developed and supported to continue to develop and to be their best selves.

We remain here for everyone at Heckmondwike Primary School, because this is a building closure, not a school closure.


Our commitments remain for our school:

For our pupils we will serve the best educational opportunities in an environment which will provide stimulation, challenge and enjoyment.

Our pupils will develop respect, tolerance and empathy together with a strong sense of self-esteem which will enable them to achieve their full potential.

Our staff will maintain high standards of expectation in an environment which will recognise and respond to both the academic and social needs of each pupil.  We want our staff to develop friendly, supportive relationships with parents and members of the wider community. 

We want our parents to encourage their children and support the teaching in the school they have chosen, by reinforcing the aims of the school and in encouraging self-discipline and good manners.  Parents promote the school in the community thus helping the children to perceive the school as part of the community and their own place in that community.


We look forward to the time that we can re-open our doors and physically welcome back our pupils, our parents & carers and all other members of the community. In the meantime, if you need anything at all, please look for support on our website and contact us .

Take care of yourselves and stay safe.


Mr Simon Mark
