Welcome Letter

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all the children, their parents and carers, families, friends and members of the local community who are central to the life of Hazel Grove Primary School. Our whole school community values the contribution every child brings to our school which makes our school a happy and harmonious place to learn and work. Our mission statement is: ‘Learning Together, Learning Forever’ and this sentiment underpins all we do at HGPS.

Learning is our core purpose and we champion challenge and learning within a safe school environment where everyone is helpful, considerate and respectful of each other. We have been concentrating on making the learning links explicit with a level of challenge which encourages our pupils to develop resilience, independence and persistence. We want our children to be encouraged to explore ideas, reason, explain and justify their thinking. This will enable them to make informed decisions and facilitate life-long learning. I believe it will also contribute towards keeping them safe.

Relationships and attitudes are very positive and an ethos exists in which learning together becomes an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for all. I feel privileged to be the head teacher of a school which is truly unique and which has such a strong involvement with its community.

Our school has a positive reputation for embracing and celebrating every kind of achievement. This is reflected in our commitment to inclusion and unity. At all times we strive for the highest standards in all areas of the curriculum for all children.

At HGPS we welcome parents as partners so that, together, we can promote high standards of learning and behaviour. We welcome your involvement in all aspects of school life and invite you to join our Home School Association; the Friends of Hazel Grove Primary School (FOHGPS). Thank you for choosing our school and I hope that our website provides you with a flavour of what our school has to offer you and your child. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to come and visit us, to find out more by having a tour of our interesting buildings and talking to our staff and children. Appointments can be made through the school office.

I look forward to a continued happy and successful relationship with you over the coming years.

With kind regards

Anna Roche
