Learning and caring together

Welcome

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to Handale Primary School and thank you so much for your interest in our school.

Handale Primary School is a warm and caring community which moved into a brand new building in September 2015. The building is modern, spacious and has state of the art facilities, including touchscreens in every learning area and a beautiful library area. The school is an Eco-friendly school and both staff and pupils are very happy in the new building and welcome visitors to the school. You really need to see the building to appreciate all that we can offer.

As a team we constantly strive to achieve the very best for you and your child to create successful and happy children.

Education is a partnership between home and school and we place a great deal of emphasis on our relationship with parents. We believe that children learn best when home and school work together for their benefit. In order to further strengthen our work with parents we have worked very hard to achieve the ‘Leading Parent Partnership Award’ which recognises our commitment to all our families. Below is part of the report on our final verification for the award.

Strengths Identified In the review

  • The leadership and management of the Leading Parent Partnership Award (LPPA) has been excellent.
