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.
