Welcome to Hinstock Primary School and Hedgehogs Nursery
Where ‘Tomorrow’s success begins today’
And Learning is FUN.
As a school we welcome sharing this important and exciting period of your child’s life with you. We believe in providing inspirational starting points for learning and developing every child’s potential whatever talents and interests they may have.
At Hinstock we provide a stimulating, broad and balanced curriculum, to prepare for your child’s future by developing skills and promoting enthusiasm to pursue learning throughout their lives. We acknowledge the importance of developing a caring and stimulating environment, where your child’s self-esteem grows enabling them to take risks and learn confidently through their achievements and mistakes. We are an inclusive school that builds independence, responsibility, resilience, kindness and resourcefulness in preparation for life in today’s society.
Our aim is to enable every child to fulfil their potential and have opportunities to develop their own skills and interests. We encourage every child to be the best they can be and do the best they can do.
The best way to appreciate our aims and values is to come and visit us. We want your association with the school to be a long and happy one. Working closely with parents and carers is integral for the success of every child. With your help we hope your child will contribute to the life of the school and take part in and enjoy the many opportunities we provide.
Here is a House Captain speech, written by Edward Matthews, which is an example of the citizenship we hope to inspire and nurture at Hinstock Primary School: House Captain Speech
Please also read this poem by a former pupil in year 6 - it sums up best what we want for our pupils at Hinstock School.
Yesterday was World Book Day and the school was visited by the author Mike Barfield who led the day for all our children including Nursery with exciting performances, quizzes and activities related to his book: SWAT! A Fly's Guide to Staying Alive! (see gallery for photos!). The event was run by Shrewsbury Bookfest and Yvonne Bridgeland who also came along commented on our school saying:
'Thank you to Corinne Davies-Griffith and all the staff for welcoming Shrewsbury Bookfest and Mike Barfield into your wonderful school today. The children were so attentive, responsive and enthusiastic; it was a joy to watch them responding to his lively and interesting presentation which was full of fascinating information. Your school has a lovely atmosphere, and it was a great privilege to be there and share the day with you.'
Thank you to all the parents who came along to our Reading Workshop. If you couldn't make it please access the Powerpoint here and we will update our class and curriculum pages with some useful apps and links. Reading Workshop Powerpoint.
In June the school received a lovely email which shows how proud we should be of our children, they are a credit to the school and to you as parents: 'May I take this opportunity to say that in thirty years of driving countless thousands of children for hundreds of schools over the UK, Hinstock Primary School stands above all others in terms of respect for others, personal behaviour and friendliness to all. For this I thank the children and the culture nurtured by the staff.'
