Welcome back to Howard Primary

Sep 8, 2020

Welcome back to Howard Primary! Books can be an effective tool to talk and explore anxieties about going back to school as well as starting in a new class or celebrating big moments like starting nursery! In the photo I added a selection of my favourite children books you might want to read with your child or recommend to family and friends. For more options please visit BookTrust: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/booklists/s/starting-school/ Happy Reading!😊

Being creative in face of adversity

Jul 24, 2020

At times, people think of Croydon as a difficult place. I think of it as a very creative place, just like Howard Primary and its pupils. It has been a long, challenging year but we have September to look forward to. We have the future of our pupils to look forward to. Have a look at this video and discover how amazing and talented young people from Croydon are. From all of us, to all of you, keep safe, be creative!


Is moving to yr7 giving you butterflies?

Jul 16, 2020


If you are in year 6, by now you should have completed a virtual transition program organised by your new secondary school. You might feel relaxed about it all, you might have some questions or feel a few butterflies in your stomach.
YoungMinds have put together a brilliant video made by new yr7 pupils. It’s called Finding your feet. Watch it on your own, with parents, with your friends to discover common yr7 fears and how to manage them.


If you are a parent and feel you could do with a chat, YoungMinds has a parent helpline.

Call the Parents Helpline: 0808 802 5544 (Monday to Friday 9.30am – 4pm, free for mobiles and landlines)
