Heathwood Lower School

Welcome to Heathwood Lower School

I am very proud to be your Headteacher and to introduce you to our school. 

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. In our recent Scoping Audit (December 2016), included in our strengths is "a love of learning permeates through all aspects of school life. Pupils are inquisitive, motivated and ambitious for themselves." "They have a resoundingly positive approach to making progress and mirror the ambition their teachers have for them." "They are proud to be part of their school and proud of what they can do."

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. 

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.
