Welcome to our school

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 a commitment to the personal and academic growth of everyone. We maintain our commitment to our pupils, parents and staff to ensure they are nurtured, enabled and supported to develop and to be their best selves within a caring environment where everyone is happy, safe and secure.

We have high expectations in all we do; behaviour, presentation, personal and academic progress, and we work hard to fulfil our ambitions. Whether working together in lessons, putting on amazing productions, or taking part in clubs and sporting events, teamwork is important to us. At our school, you will find a community of people – Children, Staff, Governors and Parents - who are respectful and supportive of each other. We know that working hard together helps us to achieve our goals and provides us all with amazing and enjoyable moments along the way. ‚Äč 

We hope that our Website will give you all of the information that you need to understand what a truly special place Heckmondwike primary School is. We look forward to welcoming you in person soon!

Y5 Cliffe House Residential

37 of our Y5 children were lucky enough to take part in a residential visit to Cliffe House in Huddersfield last week. It was a fantastic experience and fun was had by all. The children and staff took part in a range of team building activities including, orienteering and crate stacking. They went on a river walk and learned how to start a fire using flints, and went on to cook some bread stwizzles on a camp fire. They also tried the hand at archery and creating woodland tools. Please see the slide show below which captures some of their magic moments.

Rain BEAU Day

We would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone in school community, for making such generous donations towards the RainBEAU appeal today. It is thanks to your continued generosity, that we have been able to raise an amazing £1130. I think we can all feel very proud of ourselves for contributing towards such an incredibly important cause. We hope the combined efforts of all the schools taking part today, have provided the momentum needed to significantly move closer to achieving the target amount.
