At Houldsworth Valley Primary School the governors and staff aim to provide the very best educational experiences and secure the highest educational standards for every pupil who comes here. We seek to ensure the National Curriculum is delivered to all children, regardless of social background, race, gender or differences in ability. All our pupils are entitled to the development of knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes, without exception.

We do this in partnership and collaboration with yourselves and without your vital support the positive progress and significant achievement of our pupils, your children, would be much reduced.

Attendance and punctuality are central to ensuring all pupils can fulfil their potential – pupils need to attend school regularly to benefit from their education.

Missing out on lessons leaves children vulnerable to falling behind. It is widely acknowledged that children with poor attendance achieve less in both primary and secondary school.

We politely ask parents to help us to support their child’s learning and progress by ensuring that non-urgent appointments, for example, dentist, optician, Doctor, are arranged outside school hours.
