Howitt Primary is a large school which serves the area including Mansfield Road, Derby Road and Loscoe Grange. The majority of our pupils have first attended the Nursery which works as part of our Foundation Stage. This ensures that children from the age of three receive a continuity of education. We currently have 430 children on roll, which includes the Nursery.
The school consists of 3 areas which accommodate the Infants, Juniors and Nursery. All areas of the school provide high quality learning and teaching environments.
Howitt Primary provides for the education of the children from nursery age to the age of eleven. The Nursery is part-time, taking in up to 40 children on both the morning and afternoon sessions.
Teaching and learning at Howitt Primary is based on a highly focused process of assessment and planning that leads to excellent classroom practice encompassing a range of teaching styles that ensure children are engaged in stimulating and challenging learning opportunities.
We have Teaching Assistants supporting every class. We share our expertise and skills to give maximum benefit to the children in our school – sometimes pupils have the opportunity to be taught by another teacher for some subject areas. Our Nurture team are also available for the children to talk to during the day.
