Headteacher's Welcome


Welcome to our website.

I hope this provides a valuable insight for you, the reader, into the learning experiences that pupils at Headley Park Primary School experience.

Our motto is:

"Keeping the best of yesterday and aiming for an even better tomorrow"

I want children to leave Headley Park with the skills and knowledge to have the best chances in life firmly in place. At the very heart of this is Literacy, Numeracy and Information, Communication Technology (ICT). It has been said that many of the jobs our youngest children will be doing as adults have not been invented yet. Whatever these future jobs may be we can be confident that many of them will involve Literacy, Numeracy and ICT skills. This is clearly coming from government documentation:

"Functional literacy and numeracy are vital: it has become almost impossible to succeed without them. If pupils' oral and literacy skills are not secure when they leave primary school, they will find it very difficult to access the secondary curriculum."


I want to give each child the ability to make choices in life. Whether this is as a plumber, doctor, scientist, journalist or builder. I see all jobs as vital and important. What I see as more important is the ability to make the choice to do what you want. If I was to ask now, many boys in school would say ‘footballer’. A dream worth keeping, but in so many cases this is just a dream, millions never make it! I still hope I’m there to head in the last minute goal that takes Bristol City into the premiership…chances of that?! I am not developing dreams in that way, I know that no parent would ever thank me for that. I do know that with a good education in Literacy, Numeracy and ICT the choices in life are widened. I left school with no qualifications and my options were very limited. When I look back I know where things went wrong. I used to blame my secondary school education, in terms of lack of support, but I left primary education barely able to read or write. The knock on effect throughout my Secondary years is now obvious to me. I also know the power that people around you can have in pushing you towards achieving your goals. I would never have become a teacher if it was not for the belief of the people closest to me.

Whatever path we eventually take I want to make sure that every child who comes to Headley Park is given the very best chances to make the right choices for them.

I also feel that I have so much to learn from you, who knows your child better? In my many coming years here I hope to build on this and from that every child will get the best there is from Headley Park from Nursery to Year 6.

Community Use



Community Use of Facilities at Headley Park Primary 

The school playing field is regularly let to St Aldhelms Football Club who have used the football pitches for the last 70 years. 

The playing field is also available for hire outside of the football season for example the local Scouts use it for their sports evening. 

The school hall is available for hire all year round and many parents hire the hall for birthday parties and we have even had the odd naming ceremony. 

For further details, availability and prices please contact the School Bursar on 0117 903 8870.
