A message from the Head Teacher and Deputy Head
Mr James Procter Mrs Su Cloke
Head Teacher Deputy Head Teacher
On behalf of the staff, Su and I would like to welcome you to Hothfield Junior School.
I was privileged to have been appointed as the new headteacher at Hothfield from September 2011. I joined a school with a well-earned reputation for high educational standards in a warm and caring environment.
Hothfield is a happy and lively place to be with a dedicated and caring staff. Everyone who works in school has high standards and expectations and a genuine concern to ensure that all children in school reach their full potential.
We have two 'mantras': Our belief that 'Intelligence is not fixed - it can be grown' and 'All children can become successful learners'.
Our school is built on mutual respect and care for one another and is a place where individuals are valued. Our expectations for your child are high. We expect children to work hard and achieve the highest standards possible: to make informed decisions and to work and play well with others in the well ordered environment we provide.
We offer a very wide range of out of school activities for the children and we hope that your child will find something worthwhile and enjoyable to take part in after school. Parents too can get involved at Hothfield if they wish. Several parents are involved in working in classrooms and others offer their support in supervising clubs at lunchtimes or after school. We have our own Parents' Group which organises many events for us over the year. The wonderful support parents give helps to raise funds for school as well as providing enjoyable events for both children and parents alike. If you wish to join this group please get in touch with me.
Please remember there is always someone in school who will be available should you wish to talk over anything with us. Please do not sit at home worrying about anything and never think something is too small it is not worth contacting us about. An appointment can be made to see me by telephoning the school at any time or emailing me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org
Curriculum documents, school policies and our latest very good Ofsted report are available for you on this website or in school should you wish to read them.
Parents new to the school will receive a copy of our Home / School agreement. This is primarily to confirm our belief in the importance of a partnership with you in the education of your child.
If you have not already paid us a visit, we should be delighted to show you around so that you can meet the staff and the children.
