At Hampton Dene, the starting point for learning is a positive ethos and climate of respect and trust based upon shared values across the school community, including parents. All members of staff should contribute through:
- open, positive, supportive relationships where children will feel that they are listened to;
- promoting a climate in which children feel safe and secure;
- modelling behaviour which promotes effective learning and wellbeing within the school community;
- being sensitive and responsive to each child’s wellbeing.
Children are encouraged to contribute to the life and work of the school and, from the earliest stages, to exercise their responsibilities as members of a community.
This includes opportunities to participate responsibly in decision-making, to contribute as leaders and role models, to offer support and service to others and to play an active part in putting the values of the school community into practice.
Hampton Dene Primary School strives to be a happy, secure, friendly and welcoming school, with a true family atmosphere, in which all staff and pupils are positive, caring and optimistic – and they smile!
The staff, governors and pupils alike enjoy what they do and do it very well. Our school community has high expectations, both in terms of achievement and behaviour, and everyone is expected to do their best and to use their special gifts and talents, at their own particular level.
At Hampton Dene, all members of the school family and the contributions they make to the school are greatly valued. Courtesy and politeness is expected at all times, and people are always acknowledged and thanked for what they do. ‘Care’, ‘understanding’, ‘trust’ and ‘respect’ are very important to us.
Our Headteacher’s vision and goal is to achieve:
“Excellence in learning and teaching, achieved through an enjoyable and professional whole community team effort following clearly defined goals, which recognises and values the uniqueness and achievement of every child, and respects the dignity of all.”
