Our School

Howard Primary School is a popular two form entry 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.

Our school was built in 1897 and was opened in April 1898. We are proud to be celebrating 121 years of education at Howard Primary.

Our Core Values


Our Ethos

We are a UNICEF rights respecting school and are proud to have been awarded 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.


Upcoming Events

Zones of Regulation

All pupils at Howard this year will have the opportunity to begin a new program called Zones of Regulation. The program aims to help provide children with the tools they need to understand and regulate their own emotions, leading to increased well-being and ability to learn. We hope you will support us in helping the school to embed the language of the Zones. Please click here to view our letter explaining the program.

Howard will be running weekly workshops with Parent Gym from Tuesday 21st January for 6 weeks. The workshops give practical tips and techniques for parents on a variety of issues. Please secure your place by returning the form to the school office or your child's class teacher by 18th December.
