Welcome to Hartside Primary

Welcome to Hartside Primary School, thank you for visiting and viewing our website.  We hope that you find it a useful way to find out about our expectations, values and ways of working.  If you have any further questions or queries, we encourage you to come and visit us and speak to any of our committed and welcoming staff team. 

At Hartside Primary School we aim to make sure that 'Every child makes progress and succeeds'.  This is what drives us and it is fundamental to every policy we have in place and every lesson we teach.  We believe that our school curriculum is far bigger than the National Curriculum and we aim to support and guide children in a fun and friendly way to achieving their goals.

Through consultation with our children, their parents, the school Governors and school staff we have created four drivers which underpin our school curriculum and ethos.  They are:

Possibilities – What are the possibilities…?
Community – How can I help…?
Emotional Awareness – How do I feel about…?
Knowledge of the World – Where in the world…?

We ask our children these open ended questions in a variety of lessons and contexts, challenging them to consider their answers thoughtfully and carefully.  We hope that through their thoughts and answers to these questions that children will leave our school with the skills and qualities needed to become a responsible global citizen, in an ever changing world.

We absolutely love it when parents and carers want to come into our school and support the learning of their child and their friends.  We aim to meet the needs of our community in a positive way and we welcome all feedback on our development as a growing and improving school. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this message.
