Welcome to our Academy

Welcome to our school. I hope the information on this website will firstly help explain how the school operates and secondly foster a positive and fruitful relationship between yourselves and us as we work in partnership in educating your child.

Everyone at Hogsthorpe Primary Academy is committed to doing their best for each and every child. To do this we try to ensure our school is colourful, exciting and welcoming to all who enter it – a place where children and adults feel secure and confident to experiment and take risks, whilst always striving for excellence. We know that each of our children comes to school with different experiences, knowledge and skills and that each has different learning needs and preferred ways of learning. We therefore aim to match our provision to the needs of each child.

We try to develop the whole child through developing their academic knowledge, skills and understanding but also their spiritual, moral, social and cultural attitudes.

We seek not only to provide an environment which promotes achievement in learning but also one of warmth, security and care, valuing each member of the school community and working to encourage the realisation of each individual’s potential. We celebrate all achievement whether big or small and challenge our children (and ourselves) to improve even more. We encourage a ‘can do’ culture, a thirst for life-long learning and a pride in each others’ skills and attributes.

Please explore our website and, if you have any further questions or would like an appointment to visit us, please do not hesitate to contact us.
