Hetton Primary School welcomed a group of young American students and their Youth Pastor to our school this week! They spent time with all of the children, teaching them about their culture and working alongside the older children on the Easter story. They even played outside in our schoolyard at break and lunch times!

We all really enjoyed getting to know them and learning about life in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA. 

Hetton Primary School has its very first Mini Senior Leadership Team! Congratulations to the children in Y6 who got the job - your purple jumpers are on order and our first meeting will be in a few weeks!

Our whole school vision.

Believe – Encourage – Support - Teach

School is happy and friendly; caring and welcoming and provides a place where children feel valued, safe and happy.

Our family friendly ethos places us firmly at the centre of our community where everyone is made to feel welcome and supported.

The children are at the heart of everything we do; their safety and wellbeing are always at the forefront in order to support them in developing the life skills needed to become successful citizens.

Our curriculum is child centred so that our pupils are engaged and immersed in their learning through a range of enriching activities.

Innovative approaches are used to develop ideas and move learning forward by exciting and challenging children and staff to think creatively.

All learning is challenging through careful planning and differentiation to enable all children to make progress and reach their targets.

Provision is supportive of all children’s abilities, needs and talents in order to enable them to reach their full potential.

Cooperative learning techniques are used throughout school to develop communication, interaction, team work and a strong sense of community where everyone achieves more.

The staff at Hetton Primary are proactive, making sure that each child is given the opportunity to progress in a holistic way by promoting lifelong learning.
