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 !

March 2017

A recent experience had me thinking about this. I won’t go into detail but I have renewed respect for all the parents, health care workers and service industry people out there.

The demands made on everyone are enormous in today’s modern life. I am guilty of being frustrated by slow service (especially grumpy when I have to wait on hold on a telephone) I have had the odd silent moan in my head when held up in a queue by a naughty child whose parent seems to be taking an age to sort them out… my list could go on, because I AM HUMAN and have my faults too.  

This is the point of this blog – we all need to accept our own inefficiencies, perceived faults and inability to reach perfection all of the time.  We also have to accept this of others and perhaps just take a small moment to reflect before we react.
