Welcome to Shotton Hall Primary School Website. I am very proud to be the Headteacher of such a wonderful school. We are committed to our school being a happy place for young people to learn and thrive. We have grown a passionate governing body and excellent teaching team to ensure we are providing high quality and safe education for all pupils in our care.
We offer our pupils the very best possible wide and varied learning experiences which prepare them for life as good citizens able to make a positive contribution to society. We thoroughly enjoy meeting with our ex pupils who visit and we take great pride in knowing we have contributed to the excellent young people they have become.
At the heart of our school is our SHINE mission which informs our school priorities- for all our pupils to be Safe, Happy, Inspired and Nurtured towards Excellence.
Our work on Building Learning Powers supports our children to develop lifelong learning skills of reciprocity ( working together) resilience ( never giving up) resourcefulness ( taking charge of own learning) reflectiveness ( thinking about learning and making improvements) and respect – this is the basis for our reward system.
As a second time achiever of the GOLD level 2 Rights Respecting Award we use the National Convention for the Rights of the Child to give us a framework to ensure all pupils receive a good education and are safe and happy in our care.
We know that it is essential that all pupils are able to read and write well so delivering high quality lessons in English and Maths is one of our top priorities. Our intervention programmes ensure children
Our wrap around care offers high quality safe provision for our pupils including a homework club. In these clubs children are supervised by well trained staff who work as a team to ensure our children have a safe and happy start and end to the day.
Our website is packed with useful information and the interesting events. On our Facebook page there are photographs of the many exciting things which happen whilst we are at school, and some of a small sample of the excellent work produced daily by the children at school – these things undoubtedly make Shotton Hall Primary school a very special place to be.
We believe our school is really all about our wonderful pupils from age three to eleven and we are a happy and hard working school family. Our staff make a huge commitment giving many hours of their own time to school life. We enjoy learning together and sharing new experiences which are exciting and fun.
Our pupils are extremely well behaved with impeccable manners and show respect for all others in the community and we receive many lovely comments from the public about our children. Our pupils take good care of each other and make sure we are all safe – they speak well about how to keep safe, particularly when on line and we work closely with families to help the support pupil’s safety.
We believe SHPS is a marvellous place to learn together. It is a special and caring place to be and all members of the school are welcome and valued. We are proud of our inclusivity and our ability to cater for a wide range of pupil needs. Our governors work relentlessly to ensure the school is being well led and the priorities are being addressed. Parent governors work on our families’ behalf to ensure children are well taught and provision is the best possible we can provide. Governors can often be seen in the school working with us.
We know that our school could not achieve all that it does without the full support of our families and we welcome parents and carers in to meet with us to discuss their children at their convenience. As Headteacher I try to make myself or a member of my senior team available at any time to support. Our prompt and decisive action makes sure the school can stay focused on the business of learning and barriers to this are dealt with speedily.
I look forward to meeting with you as you visit the school once again now that we are opening more widely post covid. Please keep an eye on this website and our Facebook page to find out more about your child’s learning-feel happy to ‘like’ our pages and we love to see your comments! Happy Browsing!
