Welcome Back

Welcome back to a brand new, extremely busy and exciting academic year. An extended warm welcome goes to all of the new pupils and families who have joined us at Northowram Primary this September. We look forward to working together and hope that you will all be very happy during your time with us. We have lots of events scheduled for the next half term and this newsletter contains much information about what we have planned.

Open Classrooms

Open Classrooms (Reception-Y2) Thursday 27th September (3.30-5.00pm) Please join us in your child’s classroom anytime between 3.30-5.00pm! Our open-classroom events are designed so that you can meet your child’s teacher, have a look at your child’s work produced during these first weeks of school and receive useful information about homework and other routines in your child’s class. It’s an informal ‘drop-in’ session – feel free to come in when you pick your child up from school or come back later – whichever suits you best! We look forward to seeing you.


This year we are joining the local churches in supporting the night shelter at the Halifax Food Bank. We will be collecting dried produce/tins etc and we are asking children to bring donations into school during week commencing Monday 1st October 2018.

School Photographs

Individual and sibling photographs will be taken in school on Wednesday 3rd October 2018. All photographs of siblings in school will be taken during school time. However if parents would like to have photographs taken of younger siblings then this is available from 8.30am in the school hall. Please note: we must have consent forms for all pupils to have their photograph taken. If you are unsure if we have your form, please contact the school office.

We are recruiting

Over the next week we will be advertising a number of vacancies within school. Some of the positions will be permanent posts and others temporary to cover maternity leave.
If you are interested in finding out more, please keep checking on the Calderdale Council jobs website where all our posts are advertised. The posts available will include
