Howbury School 

...firm foundation

At Howbury Primary school, we are committed to the development of sustained shared thinking by offering encouragement, clarifying ideas and asking questions which support and extend children thinking and help them make connections in learning .
 
Our curriculum, a blend of Nigerian and English national Primary curriculum: is broad and varied offering a range of both academic and cultural subjects. Assessment is an integral part of the learning and development process and we carry out regular assessments both during the term and at  the end of the term . We have an assessment and reporting sheet which measures your child progress against set learning goals. Assessments are used to identify learning priorities and plan relevant and motivating learning experience for each child . 
 
We work closely with parents to identify learning needs of children and provide quick response to any area of difficulty. We also share information with parents and offer support for extending learning in the home.
 
The primary school enrol pupils from age 5+ . Children are placed in class according to age and academic ability, although children are placed in class according age and ability each child is taught according to their stage of learning as children are developmentally diverse. 
In the primary school although subjects are taught by specialist teachers, there is a year tutor for each year/class.
