A warm welcome to Howden Junior School in the historic market town of Howden. We are a successful and well respected school that has been recognised by Ofsted for its hard work and high standards. Our targets for learning are clear and all our pupils make good progress during their time with us. Our children find themselves in a busy and enthusiastic learning environment where there is always much to do, see and learn. Please have a good look round our website.
We’ll be posting information here that needs bringing to your attention – whether that be up and coming events that are now imminent or emergency information – such as school closure due to snow etc.

You may recall last year our Year 4 pupils took part in the very popular Maypole Festival. The Youth and Community Arts would like to offer this event again in 2017 but need to secure some funding. They have applied for the Aviva Community Fund and have been successful to the next stage – the public vote. They need as many people as possible to vote for the project to gain the funding. The more votes they get the more likely they are to receive funding! Voting begins tomorrow. Your support would be much appreciated. Thank you.
