Welcome to Heddington Church of England Primary School

Heddington is a small rural school in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. We pride ourselves on the warm welcome which we extend to all who come to us. Our dedicated staff work as a team to provide the best possible opportunities to allow children to develop their full potential.

School Brochure


Heddington CE Primary School was founded on 12th March 1860. It changed category from Controlled to Church Aided in March 2001, enabling it to stay faithful to its original Church of England foundations.

The school badge as seen on the front of this brochure has three symbols on its shield:

  • The cross of St Andrew as the Parish Church in Heddington is named after St Andrew.

  • The torch, which is a symbol of light, showing the new things to discover and learn in the world. It also reminds us that Jesus is referred to as ‘The Light of the World’.

  • The book is a symbol of learning, the opportunity to study and extend the mind and imagination. It also reminds us of the Bible, the authority text for Christians.

We are a small, friendly village school organised into two classes, one for Reception and KS1children and the second for KS2 children.

We are lucky to have a hard play area, a large field and a wild area. We have the use of the Village Hall during the day, which we use, amongst other things, for PE, Collective Worship and eating lunch. We also have a mobile classroom, which has been recently decorated and new toilets installed.

Throughout your child’s education we will keep you up to date and informed of progress and development but it is important to remember that you are welcome to see us at any time, particularly if you have any concerns or worries. We see the education of each child as being very much a partnership between home and school so it is important to have good communication between teachers and parents.

Admissions Procedure

(Please ask if you would like to see our Admissions Policy)

Prospective parents are invited to make an appointment to visit if they wish to view the school prior to filling out an admissions form.

If you would like your child to join our school in any year other than the reception year then please fill out an admission form and return it to school as soon as possible. If we have a space in the relevant year group then a place will be allocated to your child. If the relevant year group is full (current planned admission number for each year group is 10), then your child’s name will be added to the waiting list. You have the right to appeal to the governors if you are not successful in obtaining a place.

If you would like your child to start at our school at the beginning of their reception year then fill out a common application form by 17th November 2006 for children who will start school in September 2007 and return it to County Hall. These will be considered and parents will be notified whether their child has a place by early February.

Over Subscription Admissions Criteria

Where demand for places exceeds the number of places available we use the following criteria to allocate places:


  • children with a statement of special educational needs which names this school,

  • ‘looked after children’, for example, children in residential homes or foster care,

  • children of families with confirmed refugee status,

  • children with a medical condition where written evidence is available from a senior clinical medical officer and the child's general practitioner or specialist showing that it would be detrimental to the child's health not to admit him/her to the school.

2. CATCHMENT AREA SIBLINGS - A child is considered in this category if a sibling is attending the school as at the deadline date, excluding pupils in year 6, and where the child lives within the catchment area at the same address as the older sibling. Step, half and foster siblings are included in this category.

3. PRACTISING CHRISTIANS - Those children from within the catchment area who are regular (once a month) practising Christians, of whatever denomination, at a recognised church or religious group (one subscribing to Churches Together in Britain and Northern Ireland). Confirmation of status may be requested from the relevant priest/pastor.

4. OTHER CHILDREN FROM THE CATCHMENT AREA - Children resident within the catchment area who do not qualify under one of the criteria above.

5. OTHER CHILDREN - Children to whom none of the above apply.

School Day

Morning 8.55 am to 12.00 noon.

Afternoon 1.00 pm to 3.15 pm

A member of staff will supervise the children from 8.45 am. Children should not be at school before that unless they are part of the Before School Club which runs from 8.15am for a small fee.

School Uniform

We expect all children to wear school uniform and a full range of clothing can be purchased from Sign Of The Times in Calne. Please remember to clearly mark all clothing and personal property with your child’s name. The uniform requirements are listed below:

Grey skirts or trousers (no jogging bottoms, jeans, or track suits).

White, grey or black socks or tights.

White or pale blue polo shirt (with or without the school motif).

Grey sweatshirt or cardigan with the school motif.

Home knitted cardigans in the school colour.

A Summer dress (blue and white gingham).

Jewellery and make up (including nail varnish) should not be worn in school, other than a watch and stud earrings. These items must be removed for PE for health and safety reasons. Recently pierced ears can be covered with tape prior to the lesson.
