Welcome to Hendal Primary School

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

Our Vision Statement

Hendal Primary School is a welcoming, nurturing and inclusive school where children, families and staff feel they belong.  

Our holistic curriculum teaches children to aspire to be the best they can be. Working alongside our parents and local community we offer children an engaging and experiential curriculum that promotes lifelong learning. 

We value the uniqueness of individual learners and believe that all children can achieve. We understand the important influence our school has on young minds and the capacity to shape children’s lives. We empower children to become responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to our diverse wider world.

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 whilst we celebrate the diverse world we live in. 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 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.
