Welcome to the website of Higher Lane Primary School

Message from our Headteacher

On behalf of the Pupils, Staff and Governors I would like to welcome you to Higher Lane Primary School Website. Higher Lane Primary School is situated in Whitefield and is a two form entry primary school with over 440 pupils on role.

The school has undergone a successful HMI monitoring inspection in July 2014.

The children play a vital role in contributing to the smooth running of the school and various groups and committees exist, 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 fun topics.  We strive to ensure our children are enthusiastic about their learning and have the skills to be able to learn independently. 

Parents and staff work closely together in a supportive environment to enable pupils to fulfil their potential.  

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 talented staff.

Ms C McLachlan
