On behalf of the Pupils, Staff and Governors I would like to welcome you Higher Lane Primary School.
Higher Lane Primary School is situated in Whitefield and is a two form entry primary school with 440 pupils on role. The school has a good reputation within the locality and is regularly over-subscribed.
The school provides a caring, carefully structured environment which fosters positive attitudes to the pursuance of excellence. We strive to create a relaxed yet orderly climate which enables the children to take pleasure in their learning and pride in their performance. The ultimate aim of the school is to meet the needs of all its pupils in order to develop them into confident independent learners.
The school has undergone very successful inspections and most recently in November 2014 Ofsted reported : “This is a good school with outstanding behaviour."
The children play a vital role in contributing to the smooth running of the school through the School Council, Year Six Monitors and the Head Boys and Girls which you can find out about through this site.
Our rich high quality curriculum is based on a thematic approach and children learn through interesting and engaging topics.
Parents and staff work closely together in a supportive environment to enable pupils to fulfil their potential. The school has an open door policy and parents are encouraged to discuss any concerns or worries at a mutually convenient time. All concerns are taken seriously and dealt with quickly.
I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of our great school and extremely fortunate to work with supportive parents and governors, outstanding pupils and a talented staff.
Ms C McLachlan (Headteacher)
Stand Preschool is delighted to announce they will continue the excellent work they have been doing for the last 30+ years from a new location. From September 2018, we will be operating from Higher Lane Primary School.
Stand Preschool have always had close links with Higher Lane, so all parties are excited about
working even closer together. Whilst the Preschool will initially be a stand‐alone setting, we will be working with the existing EYFS team at Higher Lane and likely become part of the school at some point in the future.
We have organised an information evening at Higher Lane for you to come and have a look at all the spaces we will be using. This evening will be on Thursday 26th April at 18.30. If on arrival you report to the main office on Egerton Road, the Stand Preschool team as well as familiar faces from Higher Lane will be there to greet you and show you round.
Anyone interested in finding out more information, or an application form for places from
September, should call 0161 796 1548 / 07845 152827 or email firstname.lastname@example.org On behalf of all the committee and team at Stand Preschool
Mirjam Stewart‐Groen, Chair of the Committee
We have also created an official Higher Lane Primary School YouTube channel where we can share videos of the children learning and embracing new experiences in school such as themed assemblies, special visitors and school trips. Please click on the link below.
