Welcome to Hylton Castle Primary School

Welcome From Our Headteacher

Welcome to Our School

On behalf of children, staff and governors, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and hope that you enjoy looking at our website which aims to share with you, useful information and a taste of what Hylton Castle Primary School is all about.

I started at this school as Deputy Headteacher in 2013 and am delighted to now be Headteacher.

Our school has many strengths but I believe one of the biggest contributors to our success is our ethos; which regularly gets commented upon.  Every single child is important and valued in our school and mutual respect and our nurturing values mean that pupils’ voices are very important to us. As a result, behaviour in our school is excellent!

We have a highly-skilled and dedicated team of staff who put the needs of the children first.  In addition to our commitment to helping children to achieve their best academically, we also focus on the wider curriculum and opportunities that we offer.  We strive to engage children in their learning and offer experiences and opportunities that ignites their interest, appropriately challenges and prepares them for their very exciting futures.

We recognise that parents play an important part in their child’s education and we always welcome your views and feelings. We see ourselves as an important part of the community and enjoy building partnerships within and around this.  We are very lucky to have our own woodland area which is well-used by ourselves and the community.  We use outdoor learning to make learning motivating and fun across the curriculum but also to promote children’s physical development, social skills and problem solving abilities.

We are very proud to have been awarded the Gold Artsmark, Platinum Anti-Bullying Charter Mark and Bronze Mental Health Charter Mark.

Our Mission Statement and Ofsted-report report can be accessed from these highlighted links. All school policies can be accessed via the Policies and Procedures section of this website.

If you would like to see and/or would like to find out more, please do get in touch; there will always be a warm welcome waiting for you.
