Mrs K McNulty
As the Headteacher of Hugh Gaitskell Primary School, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website. Our aim is to share with you the many achievements and successes of our enthusiastic and hard-working children. Our website will provide you with a wide range of useful information that enables you to share in the life and learning of our school.
We pride ourselves in being  a friendly, welcoming and inclusive school that encourages everyone in the school community to reach their full potential. Together with my team of dedicated staff, we will continue to focus on ensuring that all children learn, are challenged and make good progress, experiencing quality teaching and learning within a happy, safe and secure environment.
Every child can do amazing things and it's our job to make this potential a reality.
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 operate an open-door policy and you can contact us by telephone and email or visit the school if you have any concerns.
