Christmas Message

On behalf of all the staff, I would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas.  Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to a Happy New Year.  Enjoy the Christmas holidays and we will see you in 2015.

Ms C McLachlan, Headteacher


Ofsted - Higher Lane is a good school.

We are absolutely thrilled with our Ofsted report which we received following a two day inspection on 19/20th November 2014.  It is official that Higher Lane is now a 'good school.'  The report recognises the significant improvements in the school during the last two terms and most importantly highlights that pupils are now making good progress.  The inspectors were exceptionally impressed with the behaviour of the children and their attitudes to learning which they judged to be 'outstanding.' 

I am extremely proud to be Headteacher at Higher Lane and I would like to thank the staff, governors and parents for their support since my arrival in January 2014.  I feel that we all work well together as a team for the benefit of the children and this has been recognised by Ofsted.  We are now on our journey to be an outstanding school.

Thank you for your continued support.

A full copy of the report is available by clicking here or a paper copy is available on request at the school office.  The report will go live on the Ofsted website in five days when it becomes a public document.
