Hetton Primary wear football shirts for Bradley!

All school children and staff are supporting the Bradley Lowery Foundation by wearing their football shirts or team colours.

What is the Bradley Lowery Foundation?

The foundation was set up while Bradley was still receiving treatment for neuroblastoma. Any unused funds were set to be used in the future to help other sick children with their campaigns.

More than £126,000 has been raised.

Welcome to Hetton Primary School

On behalf of the children, staff and governors it is with great pleasure that we welcome you to our school website. We have high expectations of what our children can achieve and strive to inspire all children to develop a love of learning through our thematic curriculum, so they make good progress and attain their very best; becoming confident and successful individuals in our changing world.

The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future.

We have high expectations of everyone in our school, we work hard to make the best possible progress but we have a great deal of fun and laughter as well.

We hope that this website gives you a taste of life within our school and help you to discover more about us, the achievements of our children and the exciting opportunities we provide.

Please contact the school if you require further information or would like to visit us.

"Hetton Primary is a close knit community focused school. All pupils, staff and parents are part of a family. The minute you walk through the door of our wonderful school you are confident your child is in excellent hands and part of something very special indeed. I love the school and all it stands for."
