Heskin Pemberton Church of England Primary School

Dear Parents

I feel very privileged to be leading Heskin Pemberton Church of England Primary School. Our school is a wonderful nurturing environment for our children; they are placed at the centre of everything we do. We set the highest of academic standards, our pupil's behaviour is exceptional and children are valued for the unique people they are. Our pupils feel safe and enjoy coming to school to have lots of fun!

Everyone strives to provide a warm caring atmosphere where individuals feel respected and confident to accept responsibility and experience success. We pride ourselves on being a friendly, welcoming school. When people join the school they become part of one big family, enjoying the real sense of community which that brings.

Every effort is made to provide a varied, relevant and interesting curriculum; to prepare each child for future learning and give them the skills and enthusiasm they need. Expectations are high and I challenge the team to make sure every child’s potential is maximised.

The team is committed to every one of our children and everyone works hard to make sure the children are responsible, resilient and confident learners. The importance of developing all abilities of children is at the forefront of learning here at Heskin and there are many opportunities for the children to enjoy and share their unique talents.

The whole team look forward to working in partnership with you, as parents. We hope that your association with the school is a long and happy one.

Yours sincerely
Mr W Bretherton.
