Hewens Primary opened as a brand new 2 form entry free school for children between 3 and 11 years of age in September 2013. Sponsored by The Rosedale Hewens Academy Trust, the new school has responded to the demand for places and is already held in high regard.
It is guided by the principles, values and policies which have delivered success for learners consistently across the entire Trust. Being smaller than many local schools, staff are well placed to actively engage with parents, guardians and carers in order to carefully plan each child’s learning journey.
In this setting, children are encouraged to become confident, caring and articulate, using their aptitudes and abilities to the full. Courtesy and respect are encouraged, as is a calm and ordered environment to promote the development of social skills so that each child can be successful. Hewens is a place where children are happy and enjoy their learning, experiencing inspirational standards of teaching which allow them each to flourish and reach their full potential.
As a ‘listening’ school, families have a say about their child’s learning and development. By keeping parents fully involved and recognising that each family has its own unique circumstances, Hewens Primary aims to support the child in every way possible. To this end, a range of additional services is offered each day before and after school. In short, the School is run by the community, for the community.
Kingsley Thomas, Headteacher, and his team look forward to welcoming you.
