Welcome to Howes Community Primary School

Built in 2006 Howes Community Primary School is in the heart of the Cheylesmore Community and takes children predominantly from the Cheylesmore, Styvechale, Finham and Whitley areas of Coventry.

The large sports field and playground enhance the quality of education offered and the children’s environmental awareness.  The school building is light, bright and airy.  It is designed for education in the twenty first century.

Children from across the city may attend our Hearing Impaired Unit (HIU).  Each of these children has an individual integration programme based on their own communication and learning needs. 

The Enhanced Nursery means that within the 26 children who attend each session there are up to six children with a degree of special need. The Nursery has additional staffing to support these children. 

The school serves a socially and culturally mixed community.  Within our vision for “working together in pursuit of excellence” our school is designed to ensure that every child receives equal access to the curriculum achieving the highest possible standards.  We want our children to be well motivated with positive attitudes and a pride in themselves, others and the school. 

We wish to make a child’s time at Howes a memorable and enjoyable one and we acknowledge and encourage the importance of parental involvement in this.

We hope our website gives you a flavour of the school and would encourage prospective parents to visit us so that you can see the school in action. Please telephone the school to arrange a mutually convenient appointment.

Yours sincerely

Mr D Clews
Acting Headteacher


The Governing Body

The Headteacher works with the governing body to ensure:-

  • the effective running of the school
  • the school provides a quality education and achieves high standards
  • the school fulfils its legal responsibilities.

What are Governors?

Governors are like a board of directors. They assist the Headteacher in making decisions and shaping the future direction of the school. They also hold the headteacher and staff to account for what’s going on in the school. Being a governor is not an onerous task the whole governing body meet termly. Each governor also sits on one of the two sub-committees, which meet a couple of weeks before the whole governing body meeting.

Governors do have legal duties, powers and responsibilities, but can only act together as a body, and not as individuals.

School Council

Howes School Council

Our School Council aims to encourage the involvement of children in the decisions that affect our school community. It ensures that pupils realise the value of their ideas and feel that they have a voice that can be heard. We have looked at a range of issues such as playtimes, lunch choices and the standard of the school environment and have been able to identify ways to make these better.

In October we hold elections for new school councillors. First the children are nominated, next they have to prepare a manifesto and give a speech to their class. Finally all the children vote for the people they think would make a good school representative.

Each class is represented by two elected members. A display board showing all our councillors is located within the school so that they are easily identifiable to the rest of the children and they each wear their ‘School Council’ badge during their term in office.

We have school council meeting every half-term where we discuss issues and work on projects. After each meeting the minutes are distributed to all classes and the pairs of councillors each hold class councils. This allows them to feedback discussion points from the larger meeting and informs the classes of any decisions taken. It also gives the rest of the children the opportunity to raise other issues for the attention of the main forum.
