A Village School at the Heart of the Community.
On behalf of the Inspire Trust, Governors, the staff, the pupils and myself it gives me great pleasure, as Headteacher, to welcome you to the South Hiendley Primary School website.
The school website is a very important tool in celebrating the amazing activities that take place at South Hiendley. It is also a vital tool in communicating with parents, carers and visitors as well as providing information about the various policies, practice and procedures in our school.
We are all extremely proud of our school and committed to providing the very best possible education for all of our children. We know that South Hiendley Primary is a school where:
• Children feel safe within a happy stimulating and attractive environment.
• Each child is encouraged to enjoy learning and develop a lively and enquiring mind.
• Children develop skills as independent learners.
• Children have a thirst for acquiring knowledge
To be Respectful
To keep ourselves and others Safe
To come to school and be Ready
We are Positive
We are Proud
We are Persistent
We are Polite
Our school motto is; ‘Dream. Believe. Achieve.’ We want our children to grow and understand that anything can be possible.
South Hiendley Primary School is a village school, catering for children in the 3-11 years’ age range and we are part of the Inspire Partnership Multi-Academy Trust (IPMAT). Most of our pupils live in South Hiendley but we also welcome children from the surrounding areas. The school grounds consist of separate Early Years Foundation Stage outdoor provision, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 playgrounds, an extensive playing field and a large outdoor nature area. The large school field hosts a tyre park and a trim trail.
I feel privileged to lead a team of professional, talented and committed staff who provide well planned and engaging lessons and activities. A wide range of curriculum enrichment activities are also provided to enhance children’s learning, for e.g. After School Clubs. We have a supportive and hard working group of governors who are highly skilled in different areas. Governors and staff work together to provide our children with the very best learning opportunities. We encourage our pupils to be responsible for their learning, to grow in confidence and become independent.
