Our vision for HNPS is to provide students with access to the widest range of opportunities in life by fostering academic excellence and instilling self-belief, intellectual curiosity and responsibility towards others in society.
Knowing that happy children learn well, we want to fill our school with the joy of learning benefiting from exceptional teaching. We dedicate all our resources and energy to the way we work with each child. Hackney New Primary School has an emphasis on strong relationships which are often built outside of the classroom – at mealtimes, at playtimes and in activities led by teachers during the extended day. As their first carers, parents have the single biggest influence on children’s lives and we work closely with all of them. Parents’ contributions are highly valued; whether that be organising community events, supporting learning during the school day or helping out with enrichment activities and school trips.
Our curriculum is underpinned by the development of core skills. This may be the discipline of learning a musical instrument, the problem-solving and collaborative skills children will be developing through our Forest School partnership, or the love of books that will help pupils access worlds beyond their own. No subject stands alone. For example, great mathematicians need to be able to enquire, to puzzle, to collaborate and to communicate well, and these skills are woven into every aspect of our school day.
