School Vision

At Hawkedon, our vision is to provide an exciting, relevant curriculum that enables pupils to leave the school as confident and questioning individuals who are ready for the next stage in their education.

We pride ourselves on offering a curriculum that is fun, exciting and enriched through trips and visits.  All the Hawkedon staff work incredibly hard in designing learning experiences that are memorable and meaningful.

The school delivers a child centred curriculum and works to support all learners and help them achieve.  Through the close analysis of needs and the high quality provision offered, the school is able to achieve consistently high percentages in national tests at all stages in the school.

We aim to ensure that while at the school children remain safe and healthy, while enjoying and achieving.  The diverse nature of our curriculum enables this to happen.  Pupils are able to visit places of interest to support learning, such as Ypres in Year 6, and attendance at school clubs helps to enhance the children’s school experience.

We are a very diverse school and we celebrate the fact that so many children come from different backgrounds and cultures.  We strive to work in partnership with families and have a Family Centre on site to support those who need it.  The ‘open door’ policy at the school enables parents to come in and discuss their children’s progress at any opportunity.

We actively promote a ‘can do’ culture at the school for staff and children.  We understand that learning can be challenging but we work to ensure that children state ‘I can’t do it  … yet!’
