Ofsted May 2017: All staff and governors work hard to achieve the school's vision: 'belong, believe, achieve and grow'. Pupils are proud of their school. They work hard, are confident and appreciate the good learning opportunities that the school provides. Relationships between staff and pupils are excellent and this helps pupils to make good progress. One pupil said, 'The teachers really care about what you do.'
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.
Mrs Pat Kerton
