Welcome to Halfpenny Lane Junior, Infant & Nursery School
We are a vibrant 3–11 two-form entry primary school, part of Pontefract Academies Trust. At Halfpenny Lane we have a strong ethos of inclusion and encourage all of our children to be confident and independent learners, who care both for themselves and others around them. We have the highest expectations of everyone who attends our school and collectively strive to provide our children with the best educational opportunities possible.
At Halfpenny Lane our aims are to:
Foster a love of learning and develop enquiring minds, enable our children to overcome barriers and reach their full potential, ensure our children value themselves as unique individuals whilst respecting and recognising differences and work together as a community to develop responsible and capable citizens.
If your child is joining us for the first time, we welcome you and look forward to a happy and successful partnership over the forthcoming years. If you already have a child at Halfpenny Lane, we hope to strengthen our existing links with you to enable us to provide the best educational experience possible. We believe that children learn best when home and school work together. When your child starts school, it is not where your job ends and ours begins – it is where our job begins and yours continues!
