Welcome to Heathwood Lower School
I am very proud to be your Headteacher and to introduce you to our school. It is a great honour and privilege for me to be the Headteacher of such a wonderful school. It is obvious to me that Heathwood is a very special community that has at its heart a deeply caring ethos.
Heathwood is an inclusive school that promotes a set of values; we strive to nurture our pupils in order that they may become confident, caring, compassionate children, ready to make a positive contribution to the wider community when they leave our care
We have a hardworking, dedicated and committed staff and Governing Body who are very proud of the education we provide your child.
Our super environment allows every child to develop their skills and talents and their lively enquiring minds. Heathwood Lower School ’fosters pupils’ personal and social skills successfully and engenders high levels of self-confidence and positive attitudes to learning.’ (Ofsted 2013) In doing so they will achieve their full potential and gain a real pleasure in learning.
We believe that our emphasis on a family orientated atmosphere, together with the expectation of high standards gives children an ideal beginning to their school lives.
Our school is a friendly, happy and inclusive school that provides a caring, stimulating and supportive learning environment from pre-school to their transition to middle school. We encourage positive social skills, self-respect and a caring attitude towards all others in the school and wider community.
We would encourage you to visit the school to experience this for yourself. If you would like an appointment, or have any other questions, please contact the school and we will be pleased to help.
