Headteacher's welcome

Welcome to Huncoat Primary School.

Huncoat Primary is a friendly, caring school where every child is important, loved and cared for as an individual. 

The staff work very hard and encourage all children to achieve to be their best in everything they do and have high aspirations for themselves. As a team we encourage children to have 'Growth Mindset' and Determination in all they do and never give up so each child can achieve 'great successes'. The school's values and ethos have been developed by the whole school and we fulfil these Values through our commitment to the children and families of Huncoat Primary in all we do.

A 'Can do attitude' of endless possibilities, positive Growth Mindset, Our Huncoat Values and a Nurturing and Wellbeing environment underpin Huncoat's ethos and this can be seen by talking to our children, through our curriculum and from the learning the staff deliver every day. 

The children are amazing - friendly, polite and love learning and the school is filled with laughter and the buzz of this happiness and learning can be seen each and every day.  

If you are looking for a place for your child, please come and see all the wonderful things that we do, the hard working, well behaved children and the great atmosphere we have here due to the hard work of both the staff and the children. We are proud of our 'Open Door' policy here and love welcoming new families and faces into our school. 

Please enjoy our website which has lots of information about the school and of course is a celebration of our learning. Thank you 


Headteacher: Mrs R Dickinson
