Children are at the centre of everything that we do. Decisions that we make around the curriculum and school life are carefully considered to reflect their current and future needs. Mental health is balanced with academic needs to nurture the whole child.
We strive to provide a fun, inclusive and nurturing environment for children to learn, through challenging lessons with an emphasis on progress and achievement. The curriculum design will be broad and ambitious and provide opportunities for the children to learn about the wider world around them. We aim for them to see themselves reflected within the topics and themes that we choose but also to enhance their awareness and understanding of those who are different from them.
Our outside space is extensive and well resourced. We believe that outdoor provision provides opportunities for children to build the characteristics of effective learning which enables them to achieve across the curriculum and build life skills such as team work, resilience and creative thinking.
The strong community of our school is built upon the relationships between all children, staff, governors and parents. By the time our children leave Hartsbourne we believe that they will be confident, inquisitive learners who will have lifelong happy memories. The skills they develop will enable them to overcome any challenges that they meet and prepare them for secondary school and beyond.
