WELCOME TO HALLING PRIMARY SCHOOL
I am delighted to welcome you to our school. Halling Primary School is a very warm and welcoming place that offers your child an inspirational start to their education.
Halling Primary School is a happy place to be: we put our children at the centre of all that we do. We all work together to provide a caring and nurturing environment where children can achieve their full potential.
Aims reflect our beliefs and values (please see the ethos, vision and values section of our website for more information) and what we want to achieve as a learning community. Using our aims, we create targets and objectives for us as a school to achieve, continuously moving our school forward in an ever-changing society.
At Halling, we have high expectations of ourselves as staff, of pupils and the school as a whole. By having high expectations, pupils become independent, resilient and effective lifelong learners.
Our school has a happy, supportive and caring ‘feel.’ Our pupils really are at the heart of all we do. We understand that pupils need to be happy and safe in order to learn and therefore we make it our priority to ensure they are.
We treat every child fairly, equitably, with dignity and respect to ensure we have an inclusive school culture.
A truly inclusive learning environment where everyone in the school is challenged, strive to be the best they can be, continuously learning new things and are committed to ‘learning for life.’
We pride ourselves in being at the heart of the community. We ensure that our pupils are given a wide range of opportunities to develop their role as a British citizen through their spiritual, moral, social and cultural compass.
Proud of our achievements
As a school, we love to celebrate our own and one another’s success. We feel that this is vitally important to develop pupil’s self-esteem and confidence.
In order to ensure our aims are met, we have a range of policies, practices and procedures that ensure our school is effectively run and that it is well led and managed at all levels.
Our statutory policies are on the school website. Hard copies of all our policies are kept in the school office.
Our children’s school!
Halling Primary School is at the heart of a thriving community and are continuously growing.
We currently have 350 pupils at the school and our admission number is now 60 each year.
Children usually start after their fourth birthday and stay with us until the age of eleven.
Our children are excellent ambassadors: we are proud that they take part in many community events such as the Remembrance Service and Parade in St. John’s Church, singing to the Halling Active Retired Club at Christmas and collecting Harvest Gifts for the elderly.
We encourage our pupils to contribute to the school community by taking on many responsibilities e.g. House Captains; Young Leaders; Reading Buddies; Maths Mentors; Sports Councillors; School Councillors; Online Safety Ambassadors and Children's Charity Committee.
We are committed to developing a learning environment which is:
- Full of opportunities
Halling Primary School is dedicated to producing life-long learners and excellent achievement.
We teach the National Curriculum through a full range of active, purposeful learning activities that include: topic-based learning in the afternoons with many opportunities for cross-curricular learning; an emphasis on outdoor learning; maximising the use of trips and visitors; links to real life and the community; a commitment to developing learners with the key skills to succeed in life.
