Our admissions are via Rochdale LA, the link to which is located on our home page.
At Little Heaton C of E Primary School, we refer to ourselves as the ‘Little Heaton family’ and we really are. Your child / children are at the heart of all we do, as a smaller than average sized school we know each and every child, their interest and needs. Just as in any family, we aim to achieve the very best for your child in a safe, happy, respectful, inclusive and welcoming environment, which ‘feels like home.’
Our vision is the golden thread which drives our actions as a family: “All things are possible for those who believe.” Mark 9.23. This is supported by our everyday actions which model our values and motto: ‘Learning together we grow in F.A.I.T.H’ (Friendship, Aspirations, In Wisdom, Trust and Hope). We work in strong, supportive, partnership with our families to enable our children to grow in to happy, confident, resilient, caring, aspirational young people - who have high expectations of themselves, each other, the community and our world.
Our broad, balanced curriculum celebrates the diversity and influence of the pride of the rich history, geography of our local area. Little Heaton’s origins were founded in 1884 by the Schwabe family with the aim of educating the children of the workers of his local textile mills as part of the co-operative movement , built by Edgar Wood a famous local architect whose designs are still much loved family homes across Middleton, today. Reflecting on our co-operative history allows our children to have pride in what our community and local region has achieved and continues to achieve through hard work, team work, respect, friendship and love for others.
Team work and determination to ‘make a difference’ was clearly modelled by our children who confidently stated live on air to the Newsround and Blue Peter presenters, 2019: ‘At our school, we believe in making a difference and changing lives,’ as part of their inclusion in BBC’s Children In Need events as recognition for the civic pride they take in helping others.
We have strong links with Manchester Diocese and our local Parish Church, All Saints C of E. We welcome and respect all faiths, and none beliefs. Our inclusive environment encourages the understanding for the importance of respect for all faiths, cultures, genders, beliefs and none religious beliefs as part of our calm, respectful and caring ‘LH family.’
