Welcome to the website of Higher Lane Primary School

Head's Welcome 

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 an 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)
