I love coming to school and being with my friends. Teachers really care about you.

Welcome to Henry Hinde Junior School

On behalf of the staff, children and governors I would like to welcome you to Henry Hinde Junior School. I hope that our website will begin to help you see what our wonderful school can offer your family.

I feel very privileged to be introducing myself as the Headteacher. The positive, warm atmosphere and constant drive for improvement at Henry Hinde Junior School makes it a very special place. We have active governors and the school is supported by a wonderful community.

We are based on an extensive and extremely pleasant site which includes a large Forest School area. It was purpose built as a Middle School in 1974 and has eight classrooms, a library, music room, family room, two computing suites, a nurture room and hall.

Your child will be placed at the heart of everything we do. Our team of staff are skilled, hardworking and committed to developing all of your child, not just their academic ability. We recognise that success for every child will be different and we celebrate this in numerous ways. Achievement and good behaviour are encouraged using a positive approach.

We know how valuable each day at school is, so we want all of our children to be happy and safe, and to access an exciting, broad curriculum. We aim to extend opportunities outside of school in sport, dance and drama, for those children who wish to take these up.

As Ofsted noted in November 2018: "The curriculum and extra enrichment, such as sport, music and the creative arts, are having a positive impact on pupils’ enjoyment of school. The school makes a strong contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development."

We aim to work closely with families. You know your child best and we believe that working together is the most beneficial way. Home school diaries, home visits and social events are all part of this partnership. If there is anything else you need to know then please get in touch and come and talk to us.

We love our school and we hope that you will too!

Mrs Rachael Allen
Headteacher
