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.

Home Learning 

Ideas of work to be done at home...


Please visit the Purple Mash website (www.purplemash.com), where you will find your child’s class blog under the section called ‘Sharing’, then ‘Shared Blogs’.

Here, you will find suggestions of Home Learning tasks, which can be completed by pupils at home, should they wish to.

Teachers will set new tasks every Friday for the following week. Completed work may be uploaded to their class Purple Mash blog, where it will receive teacher feedback.

Here, you will also find advertised the time and date of your child’s weekly ‘Class Chat’ with their teacher, which is also held on their Purple Mash class blog. Please find a ‘help sheet’ for blogging at the bottom of this page.

The Government-funded ‘Oak National Academy’ has a wealth of learning resources for all ages, across all subjects.
