School Welcome

Welcome to Northway!

It is a real privilege to welcome you as Headteacher of Northway Primary and Nursery School. Whether this is the first time you have heard about our School or if you have known us for many years, we hope you will enjoy the snapshot of school life found within this website. The family of Northway goes back many, many years and we look forward to the future, one that you may be part of.

Northway is a school that exists for its community and we strongly believe that ‘Together we can achieve anything’. We want our pupils to believe in themselves and have all the tools they need to succeed. We want each child, their family and our staff, not only to survive, but to THRIVE. With this common belief in one another and the gifts we collectively bring, this aspiration really is possible.

Learning is central to Northway, endeavouring to inspire that all important love of learning and eagerness to discover more and more each day. Staff have the same enthusiasm and openness to learn, trying new techniques alongside tried and tested successful practice. Pupils behave well and that expectation is embedded throughout school. At Northway, we want children to ‘shine from inside out’ – following the Northway Code will allow them to strive to be the very best they can be as individuals but also care for and respect others around them … wanting the very best for each other. Children who ‘shine from the inside out’ know the tools to be self-motivated yet outward looking too.

A website does only give a snapshot of the ethos, vision and values of a school. We look forward to welcoming you into our school community where you can experience our vibrant and energetic learning community where we strive to ensure: ‘All learners, all valued, all achieving, all the time.’

With thanks,

Mr MJ Hargreaves
