Hayfield Primary School

Loving Learning, Loving Life.

Our School Vision and ethos

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

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 with others

Our school curriculum, which follows the National Curriculum, will be driven by a contextual emphasis on:
