Howard Primary School is a popular community school that prides itself on both excellent academic achievements but also its dedication to producing well rounded individuals within a caring, nurturing and safe environment.
Since September 2012 Howard began expanding to a two-form entry school and from September 2018 we are a two form entry school from reception through to year 6.
Our school was built in 1897 and was opened in April 1898. This year we are proud to be celebrating 120 years of education at Howard Primary.
Our Core Values
We are a UNICEF rights respecting school and recently have been the proud recipient of the Achievement for All quality mark. We strongly believe that every child, regardless of their background, has the right to the highest quality education and to feel safe and cared for in their school environment. Our five core values represent the ethos of Howard Primary School.
We expect all our pupils, parents, carers and staff to demonstrate CARE, COMMITMENT, COURTESY, CO-OPERATION and CONSIDERATION in everything they do.
Social Media and Online Gaming
As a school, we understand the importance of technology and how it can benefit children, however safety and well-being are also equally important. Our priority is to keep your children safe and happy. Social media and online gaming can cause problems that can only be prevented if we work together.
We are noticing an alarming rise in the amount of conflicts / issues with friendships beginning at home on social media and then being continued in school the next day. We would like all parents to help us by being vigilant and ensuring that you are aware of everything that your child is doing online. Children under 13 should not have their own social media or gaming accounts however if you are allowing them to do so, please check their message streams and ensure that you can hear everything they are saying when online. We advise parents to never allow their child to access the internet unsupervised. There are several resources below that we would recommend parents and carers to read in order to help children to stay safe online.
