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.

PE days

Year 6 PE days are usually on Mondays and Wednesdays, however children need to have their PE kits in school every day of the week.

Reward Trip

12th May 2017 - Year 6 had a fantastic day celebrating all their hard work over the last few weeks! We are so proud of how hard all the pupils, staff (and parents!) have worked towards the SATs exams, making today's cinema trip all the more deserved. A big thank you to everyone at home who helped make the exams week such a calm and positive experience. Thanks for all the lovely feedback we've had from parents and pupils alike. Well done Year 6 - what a talented bunch you are! 

Art Gallery

Year 6 have been working with the award-winning artist Cath Riley in preparation for our Haydonleigh Art Gallery. Check out some of our wonderful sketches of still-life objects. She’s even been kind enough to email us to say how pleased she is to have inspired some budding young artists!



Year 6 had a wonderful time at PGL and look forward to sharing the full album of photos with you later on in the year. Here are a few sneak previews!


Roald Dahl’s 100th Birthday

After reading ‘Boy’, by Roald Dahl, the children investigated the circumstances leading to ‘The Great Mouse Plot’. They then typed up their own crime reports on this terrible event. Here are a few for you to enjoy!


World War 2

Year 6 have been working hard to develop our Year 5 & 6 Hub. Look at our lovely World War 2 display! The children are enjoying borrowing books and artefacts from the library to research more on this interesting topic. They have also been ‘Building Learning Power’ with the themes of Responsibility, Reciprocity, Resourcefulness and Reflectiveness in our ‘BLP’ zone.

Heavenly Homework

We’ve had some stonking homework handed in this term. We’ll keep adding lovely examples throughout the year! Please find below a link to the full homework menu, should you wish to have another look.




Useful information

  • Homework is handed out on Monday and collected back in on the following Monday.
  • We expect every child in Year 6 to read for at least 15 minutes at home every school night. We also expect children to record this in their reading record. It is imperative in Year 6 that children are reading regularly in preparation for their SATS examinations and Secondary school.
  • All Year 6 children are expected to practise the times tables they are currently learning at home. Evidence of this in their homework book, when possible, would be much appreciated!
  • Year 6 children must practise their weekly spellings in their home spelling book five times per week.
  • In addition to the above, Year 6 children will be set a piece of separate Literacy and Numeracy homework each week. Their projects will vary and will come with individual guidance. The general rule of thumb is that each piece of homework should take a minimum of 20 minutes.
  • If your child has anything they wish to discuss, please encourage them to approach their teacher first. In Year 6 we strive to achieve greater independence in preparation for Secondary School.  We operate an open-door policy and welcome parents and guardians to approach and discuss any concerns with their child’s teacher. Many thanks for your support in this busy academic year.
