St Hugh’s Primary School is a one-form entry primary school serving Holts Village on the outskirts of Lees, Oldham.
The school’s vision statement is “Be the change you want to see in the world”. At the school’s most recent Ofsted inspection in 2023, the school was judged “Good and a school where pupils’ welfare is the staff’s top priority”. It is an inclusive school, which aims to promote the children’s spiritual, moral, and cultural development, helping children towards an understanding of Christian belief and other world faiths.
The school’s curriculum has been designed to ensure that each child can ‘be the change they want to see in the world’ by offering stimulating and awe-inspiring learning experiences with Christian values and high aspirations at their heart. It is bespoke to the needs of the pupils at St Hugh’s, not only by focussing on appropriate subject-specific knowledge, skills, and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum but by modelling the virtues given to us by Christ and by developing individual and collaborative learning experiences, a sense of responsibility and challenges that take them beyond the classroom.
At St. Hugh’s the whole community of children, staff, parents, and governors believe in welcoming everyone as individuals recognising that everyone has a valuable contribution to make to the life and work of the school.
St Hugh’s firmly acknowledge the partnership that exists between the Home and School and works closely with parents and carers throughout a child’s school life. The school actively strives to develop these links because they believe that the process of educating your child is one in which the school & parents/carers share responsibility.
The school treats each person as a unique individual of inherent worth to support them towards academic excellence and personal growth, as they become advocates for change within society.
