Headteacher Message

We have a shared vision of what makes a good school and this vision influences all that we do. We all work very hard, we work together as a team and we have fun. We believe that a truly happy atmosphere is fundamental to a child's relaxed and confident progress. You will often hear laughter at Hipsburn.

We have high expectations of people.  Children and adults are expected to treat each other with kindness, consideration and courtesy.

We have high expectations of learning achievements.  Learning is our focus and we achieve good results but we are continuously working towards curriculum improvements.  We believe that children thrive when they are challenged and supported in their work. We believe that the same is true of their teachers! The quality of our staff contributes significantly to our success.

We have high expectations in resourcing the school. A bright and interesting school motivates us all. Highly professional staff (with a sense of fun) and good materials enable the children to achieve the highest standards.

We have high expectations of the local community and we value the friendship and support of parents and the many people who help us in a great variety of ways.

We have high expectations for the future.

We hope that you will share our vision and that your child will benefit from all that Hipsburn has to offer.
