Welcome to Hampton Primary School
Welcome to the Hampton Primary School website. I hope our website captures the spirit of Hampton and provides you with an insight into the quality of education and care given to all our children. As the Headteacher I am incredibly privileged to be working with the children, parents and staff of this community and feel passionately that primary school education determines life chances and can shape a child's perception of self and aspirations.
Hampton Primary converted to a Stand Alone Academy in May 2012 after demonstrating capacity to continue to drive rapid school improvement. Academy status gives us greater autonomy to make the decisions that are right for our children, along with the financial freedom to support these decisions.
November 2016, Hampton achieved School Sponsorship Status as Hampton Collaborative Trust; meeting stringent criteria based on sustained year on year improvements, inclusivity for all children and recognition of capacity to work in partnership, support and drive forward other schools.
Following these successes, in October 2017 Hampton was invited to contribute to the Parliamentary Review to represent the South East region in acknowledgment of outstanding practice and innovative thinking in education.
We are an inclusive and constantly improving school with an incredible learning environment; extensive grounds, excellent ICT provision, a library and highly motivated staff who work hard to ensure all children feel successful and reach their full potential in all they do. Our school offers a range of enriching activities that include breakfast, lunch and after school clubs along with a purpose built Nursery. This ensures the children are provided with a high level of care and guidance from their earliest stages of development, throughout the day and beyond normal school hours.
OFSTED in December 2012 reported that ‘Hampton is a good school' where 'high expectations for teaching, learning and achievement should lead to improved outcomes'. 'The schools ethos of valuing pupils' opinions, beliefs, cultures and backgrounds makes sure that there are equal opportunities for all' and that ‘pupils are proud of their school and enjoy the responsibilities given...They have good attitudes to learning and enjoy coming to school'.
They concluded ‘The Headteacher has built a strong team of staff who share her ambition and determination to provide the best possible learning experiences for pupils’
Our Values are at the heart of every experience at Hampton, agreed by the staff, Governors, School Council and parents. I hope you too will feel encouraged to be part of our school community and work with us in creating the strongest of partnerships. Together we can achieve amazing things!
We welcome visitors to our school and are very proud to meet prospective families and share what life is like at Hampton, where there is no compromise...children's attainment, achievement, emotional and social development are interlinked and are equally important.
Thank you for your interest and I look forward to meeting you.
Ms Yvonne Nunn
