Head's Welcome

Welcome to Howe Dell Primary School.

We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. We believe at Howe Dell that every child matters, every day: childhood is not a dress rehearsal and our priority is for our pupils to love learning through a broad and balanced curriculum which is exciting and constantly developing. We are incredibly proud of receiving 2 OUTSTANDING Ofsted reports in 2017 for our Howe Dell family, one for Day Care and the second for our School. This is due to the exceptional provision offered to develop every child within and beyond lessons, to create life long learners. Our families support the School staff and governors in always putting the needs of our children first. 

This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils. It aims to celebrate exciting learning and reinforce the opportunities for parents, carers and the wider community to work in partnership with staff.

The 'Howe Dell Family' is a caring and supportive environment where children thrive and learning for all is life long.


We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.


Thank you for visiting!
