An inclusive community where all children enjoy their learning and achieve their full potential

Welcome to our school website
At Hatchell Wood Primary Academy, we aim to provide the highest standards of education for our community. All the staff have high expectations of the children and themselves to ensure that each child becomes a confident, talented learner who achieves their full potential. We want your child’s time here to be memorable because they have had fun and enjoyed new experiences which has sparked their interest so that they want to do their best.
Our aim is to prepare children for the future and for lifelong learning in a diverse and ever changing world with opportunities as well as challenges. The skills they need to achieve this form our Smart Seven Skills.
We encourage the development of values and expectations based on tolerance, respect, perseverance, commitment and courtesy. We emphasise the importance of caring, sharing and learning to work and play together in a secure and happy environment; skills and attitudes which will be vital in later life.
We have achieved the SIlver School Mental Health Award which reflects the hard work and commitment of all our staff to support children and adults in our school, particularly in these difficult times.
We are a Silver Award Learning Outside the Classroom school and our vision for this is, 'every child should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development whatever their age, ability and circumstances.'
We believe that parents and carers play a significant role in the education of their children and through close cooperation and communication with you we can enhance and enliven the experiences that your child will have in school. In this way we will, together, bring out the very best in your child.
As part of the Rose Learning Trust we will continue to transform futures collaboratively.
