School profile

Hagbourne Church of England Primary School

At Hagbourne, we have a committed staff who work hard to provide a safe, caring and nurturing environment with exciting learning opportunities. Within our Christian ethos we foster a love of learning along with developing a ‘toolkit’ of strategies, knowledge and understanding to prepare our children for the opportunities, challenge, responsibilities and experiences of life. We encourage them to overcome difficulties and see mistakes as a vital part of the the learning journey.

Our values are derived from the story of The Good Samaritan and are referred to on a daily basis: they underpin everything we do. Care, courage, respect and responsibility create a wonderful ethos and a nurturing environment where we encourage the children and staff to be the best that they can be with the understanding that one person's best may look very different to another.

'The strength of the school’s values is reflected in pupils’ good behaviour and positive attitudes. The school is held in high regard by parents, who particularly appreciate the school’s strong community spirit.' Ofsted June 2019
