Haxey C of E Primary School is a happy, caring friendly school, where children flourish as individuals. Standards are generally above or in line with national levels and we have high expectations of every child, providing a challenging and exciting curriculum which is designed to enable all children to fulfil their potential. As you would expect, there is a strong emphasis on the 'basics' with reading, writing and mathematics prominent in our curriculum. The development of effective communication skills including speaking and listening, and the use of computing across the curriculum are also priorities at the school. We know that having strong skills in all these areas enables children to access the wider world and get the most out of life.
Our curriculum is rich. Beyond the basics, children develop knowledge, skills and understanding in a huge range of subjects, taught in interesting ways through termly or half-termly themes, making learning meaningful and enjoyable. Opportunities for the children to engage in experiences, which promote enquiry, problem solving, investigation and creativity form the basis of our curriculum and gives our children the confidence, self-esteem, self-belief, and abilities to support them in their lifelong learning journey. Children take pride in their achievements at Haxey C of E Primary School. We believe learning should be engaging, exciting, challenging and fun, meeting the needs of every child.
As a Church of England primary school everything we do is underpinned by our Christian ethos. Christian values are explicitly taught and all children are provided with the opportunities and encouraged to develop spiritually as integral part of both the curriculum and daily school life. Children feel safe and supported to reach for the highest goals. The warm, nurturing atmosphere at Haxey C of E Primary School is frequently commented on by people who visit the school.
