Little Heaton Church of England Primary School
Welcome to our school website!
We hope our website gives you lots of information about our friendly and supportive one form entry school. We are at the heart of the Rhodes community, Middleton - in the historic town of Rochdale. We are positioned on the border with Heywood, Bury, Manchester (Blakeley), and a short walk from Heaton Park. Admissions to our school are via Rochdale Local Authority Admissions Team, however children from outside of Rochdale who live within close proximity to the school can apply based on postcode locations, as we serve communities outside of Rochdale.
At Little Heaton Church of England Primary School our Christian values underpin our ethos "All things are possible for those who believe (Mark 9.23)" – valuing the respect and tolerance for all faiths and beliefs for our multi- cultural rich and multi-faith community. Our school values of "Learning together we grow in FAITH: Friendship, Aspirations, In Wisdom, Trust, Hope", which drive all we do and all we aim to achieve.
We provide a strong and caring Christian framework, that supports the whole life of the school and have strong links with Manchester Diocese, the local Church of All Saints C of E in Rhodes and in the Parish of Rhodes, Tonge and Alkrington in Middleton.
At Little Heaton C of E Primary, we value each and every child as an individual, focussing on their holistic development and individual learning style. We have high expectations for all pupils, and our exciting and challenging curriculum inspires pupils to become enthusiastic life-long learners. We are also very proud of our 'Values' based curriculum which encourages pupils to reflect, analyse and develop their roles and responsibilities in school, the community as a global citizen and a child of God.
We work in partnership with the Arch Bishop of York Young Leaders Award, encouraging our children to be courageous advocates. Emotional and mental well-being and pastoral care are significant strengths of the school. This is particularly supported through our PSHCE curriculum: Heartsmart and Commando Joe's. These assist in developing resilient and respectful learners who respect themselves and others, and are confident in expressing their personal thoughts and feelings.
Outdoor learning is a new strength of the school making full use of our recently developed Forest School site and extensive secure school fields. This enables our pupils to now access outdoor learning opportunities crucial for personal well-being and team skill development all year round.
If you have any questions please feel free to ring the school office. We look forward to welcoming you and your child into the caring and supportive Little Heaton family.
