Our vision is simple. We want to inspire extraordinary achievements in every child. This means we want our children to have high aspirations and no limits on their learning leaving us to focus relentlessly on ensuring that all children will achieve, regardless of their background or starting points.
At Hatchlands Primary School, we will create an inspirational learning environment for 420 pupils with an engaging and diverse curriculum. Outdoor learning and Forest School provision will have prominence at Hatchlands, as will the opportunity for pupils to develop a love of sport and the arts.
Our highest priority is to ensure that all of our children leave Hatchlands physically and mentally healthy and equipped with the skills to prepare them for their future. We want all children to leave us as fluent mathematicians, creative writers, avid readers, inquisitive scientists and highly effective at using a range of computing programmes. Most importantly, we want them to leave with wonderful memories of their time at Hatchlands and having grown into confident, resilient and emotionally literate citizens of the future.
High-quality wrap-around care will be established to ensure that our families are able to balance parenting and work commitments, safe in the knowledge that their children’s needs are being suitably provided for in an engaging setting.
Once the school is established, the Hatchlands nursery will open, providing high-quality provision for 30 FTE pupils, 52 weeks of the year. The vision is to run the nursery utilising the Reggio Emilia approach and once we are secure in our practice in this area, to filter the Reggio approach up to further refine our Reception provision.
This vision statement of “inspiring extraordinary achievements in every child” will permeate throughout everything we do at Hatchlands. It is essential that all members of our school community live and breathe our vision and that as an organisation we encourage our staff to aspire to be the most extraordinary teachers, teaching assistants, admin assistants that they can be. In addition, we will model high aspirations to our children and will ensure that no glass ceilings are placed on their learning or their potential for attainment. There will be a culture of challenge at Hatchlands so that staff and pupils are encouraged and supported to be the best that they can be.
