Welcome to Hendal Primary School

On behalf of all Staff and Governors, we welcome you to our School website.


Our Curriculum Statement of Intent

“Our aim is to provide all children with an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum that equips them for

today and tomorrow.”

At Hendal Primary School Our Curriculum is designed to: recognise and build on children’s prior learning, provide first hand learning experiences, nurture children, recognise the importance of parent partnerships, promote the importance of a healthy body and mind and ensure a language rich environment, allowing children to develop resilience, creativity and independence whilst raising standards across the National Curriculum. We prepare children for the challenges, opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

Every child is recognised as a unique individual and we celebrate the similarities between all children in our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values. We intend that all children should enjoy their learning, achieve their potential and become independent life-long learners.


We use our Hendal Primary ethos, “Belong, Aspire Achieve,” to promote positive attitudes to learning and motivate our children to succeed in all aspects of  everyday life.


We hope you find this website helpful and that it explains what is taught and how children are cared for. If you have any questions about our school or you would like to visit us please do not hesitate to contact us.


Mrs K Ashton
