Whatever a child's background or starting point, the staff at HPABe are ambitious for all children and aim to ensure they finish Year 6 with the knowledge, academic skills and life skills in order to thrive. We recognise and value each child's individual personality and work to develop their self-confidence and self-esteem.
At HPABe we strongly believe that once a child can read they can access the wider world around them. Each day begins with a high quality phonics lesson and by the end of Year 1 the vast majority of children move away from the phonics programme and develop their higher level comprehension skills.
For the rest of the day children take part in a busy timetable of Mathematics, English and all other subjects in the Primary National Curriculum. Science, P.E, Art, Music and Mandarin are taught to a high level by subject specialists. Our lessons link British Values in a meaningful way.
Each child will be taught in the way that suits them best and we will step in quickly if a change is needed. All children who need further support receive extra support to ensure that they make rapid progress.
We encourage all pupils in EYFS and KS1 who receive a universal free school meal to stay for a school lunch. Pupils are served using china plates and eat with their teachers who encourage good table manners and conversation.
At HPABe we believe that 'every child matters and every moment counts' We have a strong and committed team who work together to bring this vision to life.
We strongly encourage visits to our academy so that you can see our vision in action.
Where every child matters and every moment counts.
