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.

healthy lunch boxes

Our food policy promotes healthy food choices for all children.  As a part of our curriculum, we encourage children to think about what they eat during the whole day.  For those children who bring a packed lunch to school we encourage them to make healthy choices.

cooking club

During the year our kitchen runs an after school cooking club. Children have the opportunity to make some of Mrs McFadyen's favourite recipes and also learn a range of skills they can use at home.  To support this all our children have opportunities to cook during the school year.
