Howard Primary School is a two form entry community school that prides itself on both excellent academic achievements and 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 and has been educating the children of Croydon for over 120 years.
Our Core Values
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.
