South Hiendley Primary School has a set of school aims which guide our work with children.
To develop enquiring minds and a spirit of curiosity.

To encourage independence and collaboration

To reach their full potential, achieving high standards across the curriculum.

To grow and learn in a happy and safe environment in preparation for the outside world and all its challenges

To widen and expand their vision and expectations.

To have high self-esteem – respecting themselves, each other and the wider world.
The school grounds consist of separate Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 playgrounds, an extensive playing field, large outdoor study area.  The large school field hosts a tyre park, trim trail and log cabin where the children can play. In the growing area the children grow strawberries, rhubarb, leeks, cabbages, potatoes and much more!
Pupils’ behaviour is good; they are safe and cared for well. Their parents agree. They show positive attitudes to learning that mean that no time is wasted in lessons. Ofsted Inspector.
The school makes my child feel comfortable and safe. The school has great teachers! The school has a very safe, calm environment for my child. Parent
The school has been very welcoming to my 2 children who have recently joined this school. We like the variety of activities, assemblies, etc, offered to the children. There seems to be a good school spirit where children want to learn new things.
I learn a lot in lessons because my teacher always explains things we don’t understand. I think this school is the best school I have been to. I enjoy school. Everybody is kind here. Pupil
I think this school is the best school in the world. I think our school would win a gold medal in the best school awards. Pupil
I was nervous when I joined this school but the adults helped me to settle. I enjoy school because we play together and the work is fun but sometimes hard. Pupil
I love learning and I like my friends. I like my teachers and my school. I think homework is fun because you get to be creative. I like this school because the teachers help us to learn. Pupil
A real family feel where the children show respect to each other and adults alike. I feel as a school we make our pupils feel safe and value their opinions and ideas. Teacher
