Head Teacherís Welcome

I would like to extend a warm welcome to Hatchford Brook Schoolís website. I'm sure that in whatever capacity you are reading this, you will recognise the strengths, achievements and potential that exists within this school.

I am privileged to be Head Teacher of a unique school, which caters for mainstream pupils from age 3-11 and also has an additional annual intake of Year 3 pupils from our local feeder Infant School, Valley, making Hatchford Brook a combined Primary and Junior School. We also house an Additionally Resourced Centre for pupils with speech, language and some hearing needs. This provides excellent opportunities for specialised teaching and for ARC pupils to join mainstream classes where appropriate.

We pride ourselves on placing the child at the heart of our approach to education, and this is achieved with the support of a dedicated and skilled team of staff, well supported by our Governing Body and Parents, Teachers and Friends Association. Academic achievements are an important part of educational success, but only form one aspect of our ethos and approach; we aim for excellence, by seeking to maximise every childís potential to ensure they become responsible, independent individuals, equipped with the requisite skills to become active members of their community, appropriate to their needs, skills and goals.

Our relationship with parents is especially important, so that we can work together to achieve the very best for the children entrusted to our care. We work in close partnership with Playtime Pals, our private Before and After School and Holiday Club, who also provide Playgroup facilities for pre-school children and their parents. In addition, through our Learning Mentor and our Pupil and Family Support Mentor, we provide extra support for pupils and parents and a range of activities.

This website may be your first experience of Hatchford Brook and I hope it gives you the information you are looking for. Good as it is, it only gives you a brief glimpse of aspects of school life. If you would like further information regarding our work, I would encourage you to contact the school office and arrange a visit. I would welcome the opportunity to meet you, answer your questions and let you see our unique school in action. Alternatively, you can send me an email via the school office email address. I also welcome suggestions and feedback on items we have included in our website and any improvements we could make. I look forward to meeting you in the future.
