Higher Failsworth Primary School is a Community School which serves pupils from 3 to 11 years of age. There are currently 429 pupils registered at the school (January 2014). Our purpose at Higher Failsworth Primary School is, by working with parents and the community, to create a happy and enriching learning environment for all. We hope to provide our children with a sound foundation for their future life by celebrating their achievements, fostering their self-esteem, helping them fulfil their potential, respecting their differences and encouraging kindness, consideration and respect.
We hope you find the information on our website useful. Prospective parents are always welcome to make an appointment to look around school.
This is our centenary year and there will be many exciting events during the year including an open day for past pupils and staff including a display of photographs of the school and pupils throughout the years, a Centenary Fair and a Centenary party for current pupils and parents.
At Higher Failsworth we believe that it is important that children understand how fortunate they are and how many blessings they have in comparison to other people in this country and abroad who are facing challenges in life. These challenges may be due to poverty,war,neglect,disability or ill health.We encourage the children to get involved in activities and fund raising that make a positive contribution to society.
Alannah and Aidan have had an amazing response to their "Chicks for Christie's" appeal. With your help we have so far raised £335. Thank you so much. There will be a few more available on Monday as Auntie is madly knitting this weekend!
Keeping our children safe is getting harder and harder. Children now come into contact with strangers even when they in their own homes through their phones, computers, iPads, Playstations and X-Boxes. Many games now have chat rooms and there are opportunities for people to talk to your child and ask questions while playing games.
