Message from our Head Teacher

Welcome to Haydonleigh Primary School’s website and to a school where ‘I am talented, together we are amazing’ underpins our philosophy.

We provide a secure and happy environment where the work is varied and challenging and every child and adult is valued. We set the children and ourselves high standards to enable every child to develop his or her potential to the full and become confident learners.

All parents are very welcome at Haydonleigh, and we see home and school working together as very important for your child.

Our website will give you a flavour of our school’s aims, the activities that the children are involved in, the achievements that we have gained and the wealth of memorable experiences that the children encounter.

I hope you enjoy the website and if you'd like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I am talented, together we are amazing !

6 December 2013


The School Council met with me recently to discuss leadership.  We started by thinking about famous leaders and then moved on to think about different jobs that require leaders. Once we had a long list the children and I discussed the qualities and skills needed to be a good leader.  The children needed no prompting! The most pleasing aspect was that the discussion involved every member age 7 - 11 and the younger members of the Council had fantastic ideas. The children were not only able to name qualities but also explain, give examples and ask me how I used many of the skills they suggested. As a group, we all agreed that they each already demonstrated many of the skills themselves, however, we are looking forward to meeting again in the new year to develop our skills further through various activities.

Well done children!  Maybe there is a future globally known leader amongst you?
