Head of School welcome

On behalf of the Platts Heath Primary School community, I am delighted to welcome you to our website.

I am proud to be the head of our school community, where progress is evident and the children demonstrate daily their enthusiasm to learn.

Here at Platts Heath we are passionate about promoting and safeguarding the welfare of all our children and are committed to providing a welcoming, community atmosphere in which we can nurture the achievements of every child. Whilst academic learning is highly valued we also know the importance of a broad and balanced education, with the talents of each child recognised and celebrated, thereby enabling all of our children to grow in confidence, develop a sense of responsibility and achieve their personal goals.

Your children are the reason why we are all here. Firstly, and in my opinion most importantly, we will always try to ensure that your child is happy to come to school.  I have been a Headteacher for 13 years, and a teacher for over 20. I am passionate about providing the best education for the pupils in my schools. Platts Heath is on a journey to ensure all the good work of the staff and pupils is recognised in the next Ofsted. 

We are proud to be a part of the ASPIRE federation along with Kingswood, Leeds & Broomfield C of E and Ulcombe C of E Primary Schools. 

The staff, children and governors are also extremely proud of Platts Heath Primary School and are always pleased to show current or prospective parents around so that you can see for yourself what we have to offer your children. To find out more about our wonderful school, please do contact us.
