Welcome from the Head of School
Miss Nicole Chapman
On behalf of the whole school community, I would like to warmly welcome you to Hadlow Primary School.
Although our website cannot do our wonderful school complete justice, I do hope that it meets its aims by giving you an exciting and informative glimpse into life at Hadlow Primary School. Choosing the right Primary School can be one of the hardest decisions you will ever have to make, but making the right choice for you and your family can reap huge, long-term rewards. The ethos and values of every Primary School are quite different and the “feel” you get when you walk around a school can be an instant indicator of whether or not the setting is right for you and your child. So please do take the time to visit us if you can.
Our school is a small, one-form entry setting, with a family feel; serving the local area and children further afield. We are fully inclusive to all children’s needs and ensure that every member of our school community feels appreciated and valued. We pride ourselves on the nurturing and positive relationships that we form with our children and their families; the proof can be seen by the kind and generous interactions that take place on the school gate, daily.
Our mission statement at Hadlow Primary School is simple: Happiness, Progress and Success!
We strive to make our school a happy place for each and every child. Our staff go the extra mile to nurture, support and value the individual strengths and needs of our children. When our pupils feel safe and happy in school, they have the motivation to learn and the confidence to take risks; this enables them to make good progress socially, emotionally and academically.
We deliver a diverse, engaging and enriching curriculum that focuses on the progression of skills, knowledge and vocabulary. We have high expectations for all pupils, including those with SEND, holding the belief that every child can make great progress, when they are supported, scaffolded, encouraged and challenged in the right way. Progress, no matter how small, is a moment of pride in our school.
Success is inevitable when we have a school full of happy and motivated children that are inspired by their curriculum and their experiences. We celebrate success with a smile, no matter how big or how small. We reward effort and achievement and foster a ‘Growth Mind-set’ within our pupils. Success is limitless!
Hadlow Primary School is a proud partner of the Bourne Partnership; a federation of two small schools with unique charm and character. This mutually supportive collaboration strengthens the opportunities, learning and development for our children and staff.
Community is at our core and every stakeholder, whether near or far, is integral to the continuing happiness, progress and success of Hadlow Primary School. We hope that you will join us!
