'Pupils bring a lot to their learning and right from the youngest they demonstrate outstanding attitudes to learning.' . Hempnall Primary School  judged  'good' in all areas by Ofsted - June 2013. 

Welcome to Hempnall Primary School. 

Ours is a school where children, staff and parents work together in partnership to create a happy, lively and productive community. We aim for the children to be able to do their best and many different kinds of achievements are celebrated.

We provide the children with a broad and balanced curriculum. We encourage them to be independent in their actions and in their thinking so that they develop a positive attitude to learning. Children are expected to have regard for others and we are proud of the standard of behaviour and the ways in which the children treat one another.

Hempnall School works in Partnership with Shelton with Hardwick Community School. I set the educational direction for both schools and there is a Deputy Head here at Hempnall to lead the day to day management. I am at Hempnall for the equivalent of 3 days each week and am available to meet with you on these days. At other times, I am only a phone call away.

This website will tell you a lot about our school and it gives you a flavour of the learning and teaching which happens inside and outside of our classrooms. Thank you for your interest. Visits to the school can be arranged easily by telephoning the school office for an appointment.
