Ofsted April 2013: 'The school is a happy, friendly community where pupils and staff interact well and where pupils' behaviour and safety are outstanding'.
At The Hawthorns we are fortunate to have a well equipped modern building and a school environment that encourages exploration, play and learning. The feeling of belonging and community is created by a group of knowledgeable, hard-working staff whose aim is to do the best they can for every child. They are supported by interested and active parents and governors.
Most children come to school eager to learn and we aim to encourage this positive attitude by providing learning opportunities that are memorable, challenging and tailored to the way each child learns best. The children in our school achieve high standards but even more importantly they develop personal skills which will ensure their future success.
We aspire for our children to learn to be confident, independent and aware of their responsibilities both to the school community and the world at large.
