Headteacher's Welcome

Heron Cross has a unique and creative environment where everyone works in partnership to maximise the life-chances for all pupils.  Ofsted 2012 described the school as having a ‘stimulating and inspiring learning environment’ with ‘lively and imaginative teaching’.  Our school is an exciting place for children to learn.  We believe that children who enter our school family should feel happy, cared for, safe and nurtured.

Heron Cross Primary is a large spacious Edwardian school.  Classrooms contain displays of every child’s work which enhance the learning environment.  We are fortunate to have a well stocked school library; newly furbished ICT suite with the most up-to-date technology and a community room.

Managing COVID 19 - Staggered times of the School day: 

Years 5 and 6 start at 8.30am and finish at 3.30pm

Years 3 and 4 start at 8.45am and finish at 3.15pm

Years 1 and 2 start at 9.00am and finish at 3.00pm

Nursery and Reception start at 9.15am and finish at 2.45pm

If you have more than one child, then they can come to school at the time of the oldest sibling.  Drop the oldest sibling first then the younger child / children.  This is the same for finish times: collect the oldest sibling before collecting the younger child / children.

Pupils who do not have older siblings should not arrive at School before their given time.
