Head Teacher's Welcome
Welcome to Haberdashers’ Hatcham Primary
Hello and welcome to Hatcham Primary school - a vibrant, diverse, inclusive and thriving school within the New Cross community which aims to celebrate and nurture all children as well as providing quality first teaching as a basic entitlement for all learners!
Hatcham Primary is a two-form entry primary school, part of the Haberdashers’ Academies Trust South which consists of five primary schools and four secondary schools.
We set high expectations, but it is with the support and engagement of our families that these expectations can be achieved. We are committed to providing support and challenges to all of our pupils with the aim for all to achieve at least national expectations, and beyond. We provide an inclusive environment where everyone works together regardless of their starting point to achieve positive outcomes and become lifelong learners.
Our aim is to ensure each child reaches their maximum potential academically and socially by providing engaging lessons through the wide range of opportunities on offer at Hatcham Primary that pupils can gather an understanding of the world around us and develop their ability to ask questions and to think critically. Through our inclusive and diverse curriculum, children develop their social, spiritual, physical and emotional skills, and through our monthly core values children at Hatcham Primary are supported to think in a way that builds resilience and confidence through self-reflection, ownership of learning.
Our expectations are extremely high in terms of pupil progress, achievement and behaviour and we teach and guide our pupils to behave respectfully towards each other and the environment preparing them for the outside world. We are extremely proud of the children’s exemplary behaviour and attitudes towards learning.
We provide a safe, rigorous, warm, creative, nurturing and challenging learning environment for all pupils to develop as well-adjusted young adults. We are an inclusive, diverse school welcoming children and families of all beliefs, cultures and abilities. At Hatcham Primary, we believe all children can be: Helpful citizens. We believe all children can have a go and Try their very best in everything they do. We believe all the children can achieve Greatness!
If you too share these value, then this is the school for your child and my team and I look forward to working with you on this exciting journey. Myself or a member from the senior leadership team would be delighted to show you our school in action. Please either contact the school office, via our booking system or telephone the school to reserve a slot at one of our open mornings or afternoons. I look forward to welcoming you to Hatcham Primary School.
