  • To provide a broad, relevant education based on the National Curriculum guidelines and the Foundation Curriculum.
  • To provide a welcoming, caring and safe environment where everyone can develop self -esteem, a sense of individual worth and people are able to co-operate with and show consideration to others.
  • To establish a co-operative partnership between school, parents/cares and the wider community.
  • To encourage respect for religious beliefs and moral values and to value people of other races, religions and ways of life.
  • To provide a rich and stimulating environment in which pupils can develop imagination, curiosity and creativity to enable them to become independent learners.
  • To achieve the highest possible standards in all areas of school life.


R L Hughes is a two-form entry school with over 500 children on roll this year. The school is organised into sixteen mixed ability classes according to the age of the children. Dependant on numbers there may be one or two mixed age classes that have a smaller number of children.

A variety of teaching methods are used. Our teachers use whole class teaching where appropriate but also work with small groups and individual children to ensure that every child receives as much personal attention as possible. Small groups of children may be withdrawn from class to receive extra help and support if they are experiencing problems with aspects of their work.


The National Curriculum consists of the core subjects of English, Maths and Science and the foundation subjects of History, Geography, Design Technology, Information Technology, Art, Music and PE. Religious Education, which is mainly Christian but also introduces several of the main world religions, is taught to all children according to the Wigan Agreed RE Syllabus.

The general aim of the curriculum is to extend the children’s knowledge of themselves and the world around them, to develop their skills and ideas as individuals and to help them to relate well to other people. We feel that first hand experience helps children understand the world around them. Therefore visits and visitors are arranged to enrich the curriculum.
