Our Mission Statement

Hazel Community Primary School is a vibrant, welcoming and safe place to learn, driven by high expectations. We are at the heart of the community and the start of your child’s learning journey.
As a team, we strive to inspire confidence, develop resilience, promote democracy, celebrate diversity and give children a voice to be heard.
We challenge children to believe in and reach beyond themselves so they are proud of their achievements and, when they leave, are ready to take their next steps as confident and responsible citizens.

Ethos
At Hazel Community Primary School, we believe in the concept of life-long learning and the idea that both children and adults learn new things every day. We maintain that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone. Through our teaching, we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their lives and understand the world around them. We believe that appropriate teaching and learning experiences help children to lead happy and rewarding lives, encouraging them to become life-long learners and successful citizens in an ever changing society.

Our Aims
We believe that children learn best in different ways and recognise the importance of developing strategies to facilitate this. At our school, we provide a rich and varied learning environment that allows them to develop their skills and abilities to their full potential. We consider that raising standards of achievement and, the social, moral and spiritual development of each child are the foundation of good teaching. We believe that each individual child should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential. This can be achieved through good teaching practice and planned learning, targeted at the children’s needs. All staff take responsibility for raising standards in basic skills.

We value every member of our learning community: children, staff, parents and governors.
