Welcome from the


Welcome to our wonderful website! 

Because we listen and celebrate what is both common and different, we have become a wiser, more inclusive school. Diversity is about all of us, and about us having to find a way to walk through this world together. 

We provide our pupils with the skills, empathy and integrity needed to thrive in our vibrant and ever-changing society. 

At Hugh Gaitskell Primary School, our children are inquisitive, imaginative and ambitious. We teach them to debate, compromise, and think creatively. They are confident learners and articulate speakers who stand up for equality and fairness.  We nurture pupils and empower them to use their initiative, take risks, be self-sufficient and self-motivated. Our children are enthusiastic about the community they live in. They have a voice- they are powerful and they are strong.

We raise aspirations, open children’s eyes to both their immediate environment and the world beyond and we enable our children to live happy, healthy and productive lives. We do this by supporting, nurturing and inspiring our children through quality-first teaching strategies and providing a wealth of opportunities to enrich their life experiences. 

By working with our families, we create an inspirational environment where everyone is valued and successes are celebrated.

Developing a strong partnership with all of our parents is a priority and I know that your support is crucial to your child's success. I am committed to keeping you informed about your child's progress through parent/carer evenings, Link Books, telephone calls, home visits and through our website. We hope you enjoy exploring our pages.
