Here's to a less disruptive and wholly successful new academic year... let the fun begin! 

We are proud of the 2000+ hours of tuition provided to our children from government funding and continue to reap the rewards of such quality intervention from our National Tutor, Mrs Sharman. Well done!

Our mission to support our children and their families continues throughout the school holidays, too. We are proud to work collaboratively with Elland Food Bank, Calderdale's Healthy Active Families team and, more recently, Project Communities, to promote the school's vision: 


“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela

We pride ourselves on providing a challenging, inspiring and creative curriculum: a rich education that gives our children the knowledge, skills and learning behaviours they need to succeed now; in the next phase of their learning and for future success. We hold high ambition, aspiration and expectation for all. Children from all backgrounds are welcome here and everyone is encouraged to contribute positively to the school, life in the local community and beyond.

We are proud of our inclusive and nurturing approach to education and we continue to grow together. This motto is representative of the whole community and I am looking forward to embedding this vision, along with the school's Core Values of Resilience, Respect, Community, Endurance, Honesty and Aspiration, in all aspects of school life.

We are forward-thinking and ambitious in our strategic vision. I am passionate about teaching and learning and that is at the centre of everything we do. The team here is highly-skilled and one that strives for the upmost success of every member of the school family. We aim to be extraordinary!

I will ensure that our school supports children to be wholly rounded individuals, ready to be life-long learners and to make a positive difference in an ever-changing world. I strongly believe that school is the opportunity for children to discover and unlock hidden talents and I am looking forward to seeing your children flourish here.

Their journey of growth starts now…  

Mr Mark Sharp



"This is a good school".

"Pupils are proud of their school and all that it offers. Pupils who met with inspectors talked enthusiastically about their lessons and how teachers make them interesting and fun".

"Relationships between adults and children are strong and caring. Children’s behaviour is good because adults have clear expectations of this and have established routines that children understand".
