Hambleton Primary School seeks to provide an all round education for children in a bright, stimulating and fun atmosphere. We have the highest expectations of pupil attainment, teacher performance and parental involvement and we encourage everyone to strive for excellence, in order to achieve potential. We seek challenge and embrace change in order to improve.

Welcome to Hambleton Primary Academy.

We believe that an all-round education is important for development. As an Academy we are not bound by the National Curriculum, but follow our own broad and balanced, skills based curriculum which is progressive. (Children in Early Years follow the statutory EYFS Curriculum.) Teachers plan together (Foundation Stage; Years 1 and 2; Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6) basing learning around broad themes which the children have helped to choose. Details of termly learning are sent out to parents at the start of each term and are also available on this web-site.

We seek curriculum themes which will excite, inspire and motivate learning at all ages. The children are very involved in shaping both the creation and development of themes and we encourage responsibility and independence from a very early age. Whilst we have defined our curriculum “drivers” as ambition, enterprise, physical and emotional well-being and consideration,  the progression of literacy and numeracy skills across the curriculum are viewed as vitally important and these are developed at all times. All children in KS2 have IPads (each) as well as access to lap tops, and infants also have access to iPads and lap tops. We seek to integrate and develop the children’s use of ICT at every available opportunity.

Hambleton Primary Academy is a National Teaching School, National support school and a committed member of the Fylde Coast Teaching School Alliance. Through our partnership with other local, good and outstanding schools we aim to improve children’s life chances on the Fylde Coast by

  • Training teachers to meet the needs of our locality

  • Developing all our staff to be inspirational and effective practitioners
  • Engage in research to improve provision and practice, e.g. the teaching of mathematics, impact of changes to SEN provision,
  • Provide school to school support.

Our Alliance is unique, nationally, because we have members from across the range of primary, secondary, special, 6th form and university education and we also span both Lancashire and Blackpool local authorities. Our capacity to work together to learn from each other and provide the best start we can for children and young people on the Fylde is strengthened by our diversity.
