Welcome to the Hatch Ride Primary School website and thank you for taking an interest in our school. I hope that you find our website interesting and that it helps to give you an insight as to what makes our school so special.
At Hatch Ride we believe that education is a partnership between home and school and we consider our school to be a team, which includes governors, teaching and support staff, parents and children.
We strive to provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment for our children, where personal achievement and respect for others is recognised and valued. We offer a wide range of exciting opportunities for all children to help them grow into independent and responsible young people with a love for learning. Our children thrive in a warm, friendly atmosphere of mutual respect and trust, as we know that children learn best if they feel safe and happy.
I am immensely proud to be Headteacher of our small, family orientated school. As a Head I do, of course, strive for academic excellence, but I firmly believe that school should be more than that. It should be about discovery and opportunity, about respect, reliability and resilience. Our children are hardworking and enthusiastic about their learning but they are also friendly and caring and value other peoples' achievements as well as their own. We are very much a team at Hatch Ride – parents, governors and staff working together to give the children the best chances we can.
