We are planning for a full reopening in September following government guidance. Please see our risk assessment and letter dated 21st July for details.
We are not able to offer any school tours for the time being. Please visit our virtual tour instead.
Having been a popular three form entry primary school with a maintained nursery for many years, we opened our second site in autumn 2019 and are now a four form entry primary school, with nursery provision for both 15 hours (universal free education funding) and 30 hours (15 hours universal plus 15 hours extended entitlement).
We aim to work in partnership to enable each child to reach the highest possible standards of learning, whilst encouraging everyone to develop an enthusiasm for life, together with a sense of pride in themselves, our school and our community.
Our original ‘Hackbridge Corner’ site has a 52 part-time place nursery (15 hours universal free education) and three forms of entry (90 pupils) from Reception to Year 6.
Our new ‘London Road’ site has a 26 full-time place nursery (30 hours free education (15 hours universal plus 15 hours extended entitlement)) and will eventually house one form of entry from Reception to Year 6. It will expand by a year group each year until it is fully one form of entry from Reception to Year 6 by September 2024.
Across both sites, the school is very fortunate to have specialist provisions for ICT, Music, Design & Technology/Art and well-equipped libraries. In addition to these, we also have a specialist Sports Hall at our 'Hackbridge Corner' site and are very excited about the addition of a new playing field on our 'London Road' site. On both sites, we have wonderful pond areas providing an ideal space for science and quiet activities. Our Family Room at 'Hackbridge Corner' provides a venue for a range of family activities, including our Friday morning 'Stay & Play' sessions which are open to pre-school children and their parents/carers in our community.
We are fortunate to be able to offer children the opportunity to access age appropriate play spaces as they move through the school. There are separate playgrounds for each age range.
The Early Years Foundation Stage department of our school consists of three Nursery classes – Caterpillars and Tadpoles (morning and afternoon places - 15 hours) and Honeybees (all day 30 hour places) and four Reception classes – Badgers, Hedgehogs,Squirrels and Moles. Parents must apply to London Borough of Sutton Admissions Department during their child's time in Nursery for a place in our Reception classes. At the end of the Reception year, children move into Key Stage 1. This covers Years 1 and 2; children aged 5 years to 7 years.
At the end of Year 2, children move into Key Stage 2. This covers Years 3 to 6, children aged 7 to 11. At the end of Year 6 children move to a wide range High Schools.
Each class in Key Stage 1 and 2 is named after an animal or bird.
During a normal school week, twenty four hours and thirty five minutes are spent on teaching for Reception & Key Stage One, with twenty five hours for Key Stage Two, excluding the daily act of worship and all breaks.
For Reception pupils joining us, the London Borough of Sutton will allocate 120 pupils to the school and then, after the national offer day each year, the school will determine which site each child will attend for that year and advise parents accordingly. We aim for notification letters/emails to be with you within 2 weeks of the national offer day.
Pupils within the school may be educated on either school site each year and not just at the school site which they originally begin at.
Pupils at either school site will also access the facilities and resources on either school site e.g. the new school playing field on the ‘London Road’ site or the Sports Hall on our ‘Hackbridge Corner’ site.
We are extremely proud of all our students and our excellent teachers
At Hackbridge Primary School the safety and welfare of our children is of the utmost importance.
Because of the day-to-day contact with children, our staff are well placed to observe the outward signs of abuse. All adults working in the school must protect children from harm and abuse, including Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE), Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Radicalisation/Extremism (Prevent Duty), Children Missing Education (CME) and be aware that any pupil may be at risk of harm or abuse.
We have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of our pupils under the Education Act 2011 and Children Act 1989 through identifying any child welfare concerns and taking action to address them in partnership with families and other agencies where appropriate.
All staff at Hackbridge Primary School have enhanced DBS status and are first aid trained. All new staff are recruited under our "Safer Recruitment" policy and procedures.
