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.

School Uniform


At Haydonleigh, we believe in having a school uniform as it can support positive behaviour and discipline; it can encourage identity with, and support the ethos of the school; and helps nurture cohesion between different groups of pupils. Our school uniform is an established feature of our culture which supports our ethos and ensures that our students are dressed for success. 

Please ensure all clothing should be clearly labelled with your child’s name. This is especially important, as uniform items look similar and can easily be confused for another child’s. The school cannot accept responsibility for any lost items.

Policy on Hairstyles

Haydonleigh Primary School reserves the right to make a judgement on the suitability or unsuitability of pupils’ hair and appearance.

Our policy is for children not to have styles that may cause distraction to other children or raise health and safety concerns. This means no extremes of style or colour.

  • Extreme hairstyles, such as mohawks and patterned or brightly coloured hair are unacceptable.
  • Pupils with designed hairstyles, such as cornrows, may be exempt from the rule above on cultural or religious grounds, taking into consideration each individual person’s scenario.
  • Pupils with long hair must ensure that this does not impede their vision, cover their face or provide a health and safety risk.
  • Bandana style headbands and flowers or excessive hair accessories are not to be worn; however, plain hair clips, bands or bows that match the school uniform colours are acceptable.


Parents of children with inappropriate hairstyles/colour will be contacted by the class teacher or a member of the Senior Leadership Team.
