  • A message from our Headteacher, Jane Scardifield

    We hope that you, your family and loved ones are safe and well during these difficult times. As you know, the government directed all schools to close on 20th March 2020 other than to provide emergency childcare. The government guidance states: ‘We have asked parents to keep their children at home wherever possible, and for schools to remain open only for those children of workers critical to the COVID-19 response who absolutely need to attend.’ There is also provision where a risk assessment deems it is better for a child with an Education Health and Care Plan or one with an assigned Social Worker to attend. The government’s message is very clear: children should stay at home if at all possible - #StayHomeSaveLives.

    We are currently able to offer emergency childcare for those eligible in school which is open 8.55-3.25 Monday to Friday including over the Easter holidays. Should you need to access a place, please contact admin@northowram.calderdale.sch.uk – please note this is only available for those children meeting the government’s criteria.

    Whilst we are committed to providing this care for vulnerable children and those of critical workers, there may be circumstances when we are unable to do so. Should that occur, we will work with the Local Authority to ensure that alternative provision is available. The Local Authority can be contacted on 01422 394101 or at school.effectiveness@calderdale.gov.uk.

    Please note that safeguarding remains our key priority and it is important that you share any concerns or worries about children’s wellbeing with us. Please contact jane.jennings@northowram.calderdale.sch.uk with any concerns.

    During this difficult time, Free School Meals provision for those children eligible for benefits-related Free School Meals will be through the provision of supermarket vouchers which will be emailed to you directly if you are eligible. Please contact admin@northowram.calderdale.sch.uk if you need any help in accessing Free School Meals. Further information about support available can be found on the Calderdale website where there is also the facility to request support.

    We are thinking of you all and are very much looking forward to the time when we can be fully open and return to normal service. Please stay at home, stay safe and keep watching your emails and our school Twitter feed for updates, advice and the ongoing support for children’s learning at home.

  • Welcome to Northowram Primary School’s website. We do hope that you find all of the information that you need.

    We are very proud of our school and the community which it serves. Northowram Primary School is made up of a large community of children and adults, from pupils to parents and carers, from staff to volunteers and members of the Governing board we all work together to secure the best outcomes for the families that we serve.

    In July 2016, many years of hard work, challenge and determination resulted in the school being judged as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.

  • We are delighted to be recognised in this way. We continue to look forwards and we are always determined to develop further our school offer. We now intend to sustain the areas which are recognised as being excellent and to develop areas which can still be improved.

    Our children relish life at Northowram Primary School and it continues to be a great place in which we hope they will flourish.

Over time, they will be able to access the VLE to learn, complete homework, in class tasks, contribute to forums and to interact with their school. While the website provides a basic source of information, the VLE is a busier and secure online place for the school community, with lots going on. > Go to Active Learn. > Go to Purple Mash
