Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to Hamstreet Primary Academy

Our aim at Hamstreet is to ensure that your child has a happy start to their schooling.

Hamstreet is a happy, friendly and caring school where everyone is valued and respected. Our greatest strength is our skilled and dedicated staff team that works tirelessly to provide the best teaching and learning experience for each child in a happy and safe learning environment.

We are very proud of our academic success and are committed to providing each of our pupils with a high standard of education, ensuring that they fulfil their potential and are the best that they can be. Our pupils aim high, believe they can succeed, take responsibility for their own learning and develop as independent learners who think creatively and reflectively.

Our ethos is built on mutual respect for others, their values and beliefs. We hope to develop positive, active learners who are well prepared for their role in a rich and diverse society. We want our children to feel safe and secure and have the confidence to achieve their full potential both academically and socially. Children learn best when they are happy and feel valued, challenged, supported and encouraged, so at Hamstreet we take care to ensure our education is both enriching and enjoyable. We particularly think it is important to nurture our children’s wellbeing, creativity, physical development and independence. At Hamstreet, we aim to support our children to develop a love for learning which will continue throughout their lives and so we teach children about the importance of positive learning attitudes and how to build their learning power.

Naturally, we ask for your support and interest throughout your child’s school life as, by working together, the children are more likely to succeed in fulfilling their potential.

We are committed to the ideal of a partnership in education between home and school and, to this end, prospective parents are invited to visit the academy and meet the staff and children.

You must feel free, at all times, to approach the staff, or myself to discuss any concerns you may have – we will be happy to discuss them with you.
