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.
