Welcome to Kates Hill Primary! We believe that every child deserves the best education and we have the highest expectations for every child who attends our school. Our aim is for them to reach their full potential by giving them the education that they need today and setting them up with every chance to succeed tomorrow.
We strive to make learning engaging, and we endeavour to provide as many ‘real-life’ learning experiences as possible – making learning exciting, interesting and purposeful. Reading is the foundation of our curriculum, and we positively promote reading for pleasure as an essential, life-enhancing skill, asking our families to support us with this at home. We want all children to become confident and independent learners with enquiring minds. At Kates Hill, learning does not stop at the end of the school day, our children are encouraged to extend their interests through the wide range of extracurricular clubs and activities we offer, we truly believe that learning goes beyond the curriculum!
We believe that children should be encouraged to develop positive values towards themselves, each other, and the wider community of which they are part. We work together to create a school where positive behaviour is the norm, and all are treated with respect, understanding and sensitivity.
We are exceptionally proud to serve our local community and pride ourselves on the home-school relationships we create. We acknowledge the importance of our families to the successes of our children. We therefore warmly welcome our parents to attend our many, varied school experiences from celebrating successes to participating in parent workshops.
Our website offers only an introduction to the educational experiences we offer children at Kates Hill Primary. We would therefore like to extend a warm invitation to both you and your children to visit our school and see us learning together first hand.
I look forward to welcoming you to our school.
Mrs L Woodhouse
