We find ourselves in a changeable time supporting each other throughout COVID-19.
At Hooton Pagnell, many measures and homeschooling provisions have been drawn up to support the children teachers and the wider community to maintain the safety of all. The school leaders have worked hard to communicate these to all of our families, ensuring everyone remains informed, supported and safeguarded.
The governing board is supportive of the measures and provisions that have been agreed by the Dfe, Local Authority, Helen Thorpe and JMAT.
Many thanks and keep well,
Anita Newton Chair of Governors, All Saints Hooton Pagnell Primary School
Welcome to Hooton Pagnell
We are incredibly proud of our very special school which is situated in the picturesque village of Hooton Pagnell in South Yorkshire.
At present, there are 94 children on roll; small class sizes ensure that every child feels valued and nurtured whilst completing their exciting and varied learning journey. The present building opened in 1970, replacing the old Hooton Pagnell School built in 1856. Over the past few years, the school has undergone significant refurbishment and cosmetic enhancements, ensuring our internal learning environments are as magnificent as our outdoor spaces.
We are a Church of England Primary school and a member of the James Montgomery Academy Trust. Located on the border of Doncaster and Wakefield, our school attracts children from a wide catchment area across both South and West Yorkshire.
Our School Vision
We share the vision of The James Montgomery Academy Trust;
By sharing our common goals and vision we aim to give the children in our schools the best education we can. We want to enable all the children in our care to thrive and succeed by raising their aspirations and potential. Working together we believe that we can raise standards for all students by sustaining and enhancing performance to develop the whole child.
Alongside this vision, our curriculum aim of Preparing Pupils for their Future is something which we all feel passionate about.
At All Saints Hooton Pagnell, we take pride in developing outstanding teaching and learning by holding the highest expectations of all our pupils and knowing the children well. We challenge all children to strive for academic, creative, sporting and personal accomplishment within a broad, vibrant and enriched curriculum.
Our students are given time to explore subjects and develop deep understanding. We celebrate perseverance; resilience and risk-taking, ensuring children welcome a challenge and are not frightened to make mistakes. We encourage children to take ownership of and responsibility for their learning, so they have the confidence and curiosity to ask questions, solve problems and respond to quality feedback.
Children are praised for hard work, determination and having a positive attitude. We want all our children to feel happy and secure in school and we will make every effort to create a cheerful atmosphere where each child is shown respect, allowing them to develop as unique learners and people.
As a Church school, we aim to develop all Christian values especially those of love, hope, peace and joy. These values are reflected in everything we do in school as well as the way we encourage the children to interact with each other.
Working together with parents as partners in their children's learning is vital if we are to achieve optimum learning for each child in a happy atmosphere. Every decision within the school is made by firstly considering what is in the best interest of the children. In this way, children lie at the heart of everything we do.
It is our aim for all children to leave All Saints as independent learners with self-belief and an abiding respect for others. We aim to instill a lifelong love for learning and a strong grounding for future success.
