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 Self Evaluation

What is the a School Evaluation Form (SEF)


Haydonleigh Governors and Staff regularly evaluate the school’s effectiveness in order identify areas for further development. The school’s performance is constantly reviewed by both internal and external reviews. Parent and pupil feedback has also been central in Haydonleigh’s self-evaluation.


Staff and Governors write the Self-Evaluation Form SEF to summarise what has worked well and what would be even better.


The SEF looks at all the same areas identified in an Ofsted Inspection:

  • Overall Effectiveness
  • Effectiveness of Leadership and Management
  • Teaching, Learning and Assessment
  • Personal development, behaviour and welfare
  • Outcomes for Pupils
  • Effectiveness of the Early years Provision

The areas for improvement then become actions on the School Improvement Plan.
