Welcome to Siddal Primary School. We are extremely proud of our school and hope your child or children will be very happy with us. Siddal is an average size primary school and caters for pupils from the south side of Halifax, West Yorkshire. We are always pleased to welcome new families who are moving to the area but unfortunately we are a popular school and are full in most year groups.
We also believe that we can only achieve the best for our pupils by working closely with parents and carers. There are many opportunities for parents to share in their child's education and visitors are always welcome into school.

At Brighter Futures Academy Trust, we are committed to improving the life chances of all children. Where we have the capacity to make a difference, we are morally bound to do so. We believe every child deserves the best possible start in life – a world class education aimed at helping the children in Brighter Futures Academy Trust schools become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. Our mission is to help every young person in our schools to expand their horizons, and build the confidence, talents, interests, skills and qualifications to succeed as they make their way towards a fulfilling and prosperous adulthood. Members of the Trust strive together for excellence in partnership, so that our children, staff and communities benefit from excellent teaching, learning, leadership and opportunities.
The child will always be at the centre, with personalised learning our starting point, making the challenges of 'Every Child Matters' a reality. Each child will be encouraged to develop a greater understanding of themselves as a learner, what their strengths are, how they can share these with others and their next steps in their continual learning journey. Pupils will be encouraged and inspired to believe in themselves, build dreams and aspirations and strive to achieve these.
Every child will be given the same opportunity to succeed, whatever his or her prior attainment. A key principle of Brighter Futures Academy Trust is that member Academies maintain their own character. However we aim to capture and maximize the collective expertise and skill set for the benefit of all members of the organisation.
