Welcome from the Headteacher
Welcome to Hunnyhill Primary and PreSchool, a Community two form entry Primary School for children aged 3 to 11. We are a school situated in the centre of the Island with surrounding forest and farmland with a view of Carisbrooke Castle.
We encourage our children to take risks by trying new things and being confident to ‘have a go’. Our children work hard and are happy to share and talk about their learning.
At Hunnyhill our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an inclusive school which prepares our pupils to be confident and happy citizens.
Our vision at Hunnyhill Primary School -
Our creative curriculum will inspire, motivate and challenge in a supportive environment. We value enquiring minds to enable pupils to use a higher level of thinking.
Children will become independent learners and with determination will build resilience to succeed and achieve personal successes.
By promoting an ethos where we all respect each other thus leading to an inclusive positive learning environment.
Technology is an integral part of everyday practice, preparing our children for tomorrow’s world.
We do this by…
Hunnyhill has an exciting, rich text led curriculum at the heart of our school; designed to provide your child with a huge range of learning experiences and opportunities.
Teachers plan to give pupils opportunities and experiences that will inspire.
Being an inclusive school and providing excellent pastoral and well-being support.
Fostering community, parent and carer links at every opportunity.
Hunnyhill is a “Rights Respecting” school and are proud of our school values. We are proud of the impact this has had on learning and behaviour.
Hunnyhill values sport and the arts and have achieved the arts silver mark.
Hunnyhill has a specialist resourced provision supporting pupils on the IOW with Social Emotion and Mental Health needs (SEMH).
