Headteacher's Welcome

As Headteacher, I am proud to welcome you to the Howard CE School and our website.

The core purpose of our vision is to provide opportunities for growth in mind, body and spirit to ensure the holistic development of all who work and learn here. Our vision captures all that we stand for and aspire to be, building on the work of the past 186 years!

We understand that parents play a vital role in the education of their children and so value the many ways that they engage with the school and their children’s education. We work closely with families to enable each child to achieve their potential. As a school, our role is to support this understanding through the development and delivery of a broad and balanced curriculum. By creating opportunities which engage and challenge children, their potential begins to be realised.

Once these fundamental principles become rooted deep within each child, they learn to flourish. They are ready to use their talents, demonstrate resilience and maturity, and discover the world from a new perspective.

As a Church of England school we are committed to our Christian ethos in which children feel confident about their work, and enjoy belonging to a community that encourages independence and respect. The vision for the future of our school clearly shows that the children are at the heart of everything we undertake here. We are ensuring that the community that was built on Christian values and learning continues to be shaped through compassion, forgiveness, friendship and trust.

I hope that you will find our website interesting and informative and that it gives you a flavour of life at the Howard School. If you are a prospective parent please contact us to arrange a visit to see our wonderful school in action. We look forward to meeting you.

Mr Michael Walker
