Welcome to Hylton Castle Primary School

Welcome From Our Headteacher

Welcome to Our School

I have worked in this school now for nineteen years and I have been the headteacher for fourteen years. We are a happy school and I am proud to be the headteacher. There are many, many reasons for this, but I believe that one of the key features of our school is that we build all relationships on mutual respect. Nurturing principles feature strongly throughout the school and we believe that they help us to build firm foundations and to support all children as they develop and progress through our school. We aim high and celebrate achievement at all levels.

If you are considering sending your child to our school then I hope the web-site will help you gain a sense of the quality of the learning experiences we provide for each child in our school. Before making your decision you may like to visit the school – please don’t hesitate to contact me via the main school office and I look forward to meeting you and your child / children.

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

If you are visiting the site for any other reason then, again, I hope you will sense the quality and warmth of our school. We welcome feedback, so please contact us or leave a comment on the Visitors’ Page if you would like to remark on anything you have viewed, or if you have a suggestion you would like to make.

In our school we are committed to providing the best possible learning experiences for every child. All children are treated with respect and we personalise their learning according to their interests and needs. We strive to be innovative and creative, always looking for ways to increase children’s motivation and love of learning. Current initiatives include the development of our woodland area  for curricular and community use. We’re also working towards the gold Artsmark. Both initiatives aim to make learning fun and motivating for all children. Through these activities we hope that children will develop new skills and interests that will help them achieve their potential both now and in later life. Above all, we hope to nurture in children a life-long love of learning.
