Horsforth Newlaithes Primary School Careers Site Eteach (20026)


We are a community school with extensive, well-cared for grounds, superbly located in a quiet part of Horsforth. The school building has recently undergone significant development and now offers fourteen classrooms; two halls which are fully equipped for PE, drama and assemblies; a well-stocked library and other learning spaces for smaller group work. Computers are located in corridors and classrooms and an ICT trolley stocked with thirty netbooks complement the flexible delivery of ICT within the curriculum.

Most classrooms have wheelchair access and there is a toilet and washroom available for wheelchair users.

The school has a large grassed area, which is used for a variety of activities, and a large playground. We also have a delightful wildlife garden providing a variety of different habitats, including two ponds and a wealth of animal and plant life for the children to study at firsthand. There is also an allocated school garden where the Gardening Team have grown plants and vegetables which have been served up for lunch!

The school is used a great deal by the PTA and Brownies, as well as by other providers of drama and martial arts groups.

We are delighted to have introduced our very own out of school provision:

Newlaithes Kids Club. This offers wrap around care: breakfast club and after school activities.

About us

The Aims of Our School

  • to provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment where all children are helped and encouraged to develop intellectually, physically and emotionally as far as they are able, taking account of children’s individual needs and abilities.
  • to teach a broad and balanced curriculum which encompasses the National Curriculum but also helps children to develop spiritually, morally, socially and culturally so they may become self-confident, responsible, tolerant citizens prepared for life in a rapidly changing technological and multi-cultural society.
  • to provide a rich and varied extra-curricular programme of activities which provides opportunities for all children to develop their talents and interests, to co-operate and to sometimes compete against others.
  • to be consistent in having the highest expectations of both children and staff and to demonstrate a commitment to lifelong learning.
  • to encourage respect and care for everything and the people within school, the community and the world around us .
  • to demonstrate a commitment to equal opportunities for all.
  • to develop a positive partnership with all our parents and carers for the benefit of the children.
