 I would like to welcome you to our school website. We have tried to capture as much information as possible about the school here but the best way to find things out is to visit us. 

Higher Failsworth Primary school currently has 450 children on roll from 3 to 11 years. The building is 101 years old and we are very fortunate to have a lot of space within the building and extensive school grounds. We have a forest area and school gardens and this year we are proud to be taking part in the RHS Tatton Flower show in July. 


We aim to provide opportunites and learning experiences that will broaden the children's horizons and aspirations for later life.  



Our children learn Signalong signs throughout the year and the signs are used routinely in school.We will be taking part in the Sign2Sing World record attempt on Wednesday 4th February.  This is the third year we have taken part. The song we are singing the song is called Joining Hands and can be found on the Sing2Sing website or on You tube.

The mascot for Sing2Sing is a monkey who wears a scarf. As in past years we are inviting children and staff to wear a scarf and bring £1 to raise money for the charity SignHealth.



On Monday 15th December 2014, the school Head Boy and Head Girl accompanied our Headteacher, Mrs Hampson to special sports award presentation organised by Sainsbury's at Failsworth High school.

The below picture shows the Head Boy and Head Girl with the certificates confirming gold level achievement in sport by the children of Higher Failsworth Primary School.
The school is very proud of all children who have taken part in sports events over the past year.

Dear Parents,

Sports day update

The weather forecast has now improved and it should stay dry for most of the afternoon. Therefore the KS1 Sports afternoon is back on. We will start at about 1:30 and parents are very welcome to attend. Be aware that we may have to cut the event short if the weather deteriorates. Thank you.


We will soon be offering nursery places for September. If your child is 3 years old before 1st September 2015 please make sure you have registered at the office for a place. We offer morning places 8.50-11.50am and afternoon places 12.20-3.20pm. 


Please can parents and carers make sure they bring children to the office if they are late. Some children are arriving alone and this is a safeguarding issue.
