|Welcome to the website of Hatfield Peverel Infant School.
Our school is a community infant school for boys and girls aged 4-7. The majority of children attending the school live in the village itself. We offer guaranteed places to families in the village through our 'catchment guarantee' but do have a significant minority of children from the surrounding area.
We have a policy of only showing children's work on our website; we do not show pictures of our children or display their names. This policy was devised after thorough consultation with parents. It is worthwhile looking through the Gallery with your child who will be able to pick out important work for you to discuss together.
We hope that you find our website useful and informative. If you would like to know more, please contact the school by sending an email from the Enquiry page or by using our contact details.
With best wishes,
Mrs M J Webster
If a child lives with criticism he learns to condemn
If a child lives with hostility he learns to fight
If a child lives with ridicule he learns to be shy
But if a child lives with encouragement he learns confidence
If a child lives with tolerance he learns to be patient
If a child lives with praise he learns to appreciate
If a child lives with fairness he learns justice
If a child lives with security he learns to have faith
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, he learns to find love in the world

|THIS IS OUR MISSION
Working Towards Excellence
||THIS IS OUR VISION|
The school provides a welcoming, stimulating, happy environment to enable all pupils to attain high levels of achievement, whilst catering for individual needs. Appropriate resources will be provided through open and effective communication.
|THESE ARE OUR AIMS|
To promote and develop, as fully as possible, the personal development of each child in order to strengthen personal esteem and self confidence.
To provide a challenging environment which fosters the development of the highest intellectual ability of each child and the growth of artistic talent and physical skills.
To set high standards of work, manners and behaviour.
Through a wide range of experiences, to give a broad education, employing suitable teaching strategies which make effective use of individual, small group and whole class teaching as appropriate.
To use and manage physical, material and human resources efficiently in order to enrich the quality of learning and teaching.
To help each child to be self-disciplined, responsible and to show initiative.
To encourage tolerance and respect for others ensuring equal access and opportunity for all pupils in all aspects of provision.
To help pupils to appreciate and be concerned about their environment and to understand and to value the contributions made by all members of the school community.
To help pupils to enjoy their current stage of development to the full, nurturing in them a delight in learning and achievement.
To encourage regular communication and dialogue with parents.
To ensure a safe and well-ordered school environment which is aesthetically pleasing.
|THE SCHOOL CURRICULUM|
The word educate comes from a Latin word meaning to draw out. Each child is an individual with their own interest and talents, rather like a flower inside a bud. Education should have the same effect as the sunshine which stimulates the bud to open and the petals to reach out to their full size.
Our school places a great deal of emphasis on the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of children and provides many opportunities for them to interact with others and to explore experiences that will enable them to begin to understand themselves and their surroundings. We aim to ensure that children are happy, because happy children grow in confidence and confident children become increasingly able to direct their own learning, with adult guidance.
We seek to foster positive attitudes to learning which embrace children's natural curiosity, their eagerness and the trust they and their parents/carers have in us to contribute to, not only academic progress, but all aspects of their learning.

|THE EARLY YEARS CURRICULUM|
Children in the Reception Year continue to work towards Early Learning Goals which prepare them for the National Curriculum study programmes that begin as they move into Year One.
The Early Years Curriculum places great emphasis on practical and social activities. A lot of learning takes place using play as a vehicle. Play is the child's work and is a very important feature at this stage, providing a strong and essential foundation for more formal learning situations later on.
The teachers in the school work with the Day Nursery staff to ensure that there is a consistency in the fundamental policies of both institutions. We aim always to ensure that there is a smooth transition for those children who enter the school from the Nursery.
