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!
