Of the many decisions you will make for your child as they grow up, ensuring that you choose the correct school for them is paramount. At Hugh Gaitskell Primary School we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all children. We pride ourselves on providing a caring community where the welfare of others, respect for moral values and individual differences of race, colour, creed, gender and abilities are positively encouraged.

If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016 they should start primary school in September 2020. You must apply for a school place before 15th January 2020. You should visit the website to find out more about how to apply for a school place for September 2020 entry.

We operate an open-door policy. We will be very pleased to welcome you into our warm and friendly school environment. Please contact our school office on 0113 2716963 or alternatively email
