Our Aims

Hayfield Primary School 2016-17

Loving learning, loving life

Our School Vision

Our children will be happy, healthy and caring, with a positive attitude to learning and life. The school community will be respectful, resourceful and open-minded in all we do.  Children will be helped to develop the confidence, knowledge and skills to reach their potential and make a positive contribution to society.

Our Mission Statement

We want every child to: 

  • be happy and secure, and to know how to keep themselves healthy and safe.
  • have good self-esteem, to develop a strong sense of self worth, with the resilience and confidence to achieve success, develop own interests, strengths and talents, and fulfil potential.
  • love learning, and experience a rich, vibrant, engaging curriculum, and become life-long, enthusiastic learners who ask questions to develop their thinking and a growth mindset.
  • make excellent progress across the curriculum, especially in English, Mathematics and Science, achieving the highest standards of competence of which they are capable.
  • be a good citizen, to develop a strong sense of community, citizenship and social awareness, with integrity and a good code of morals and ethics by which to lead their lives and set an example to others.
  • form positive relationships and to know how to be a good friend: be caring; share and take turns; have trust, tolerance and respect; be a good listener and empathise.

 

Our school curriculum, which will include the National Curriculum, will be driven by an emphasis on:
