Hacton Primary: OUTSTANDING in all areas

Hacton Primary School has been rated as OUTSTANDING in all areas during its latest Ofsted Inspection carried out on 24th and 25th November 2015. This is an accolade we are all truly proud of and is a testament to the hard work, dedication, skills and support of our exceptional team of staff, governors, families and above all our pupils.

As Ofsted state, ‘Pupils enjoy their learning at Hacton and teachers throughout the school are highly skilled at motivating pupils to learn exceptionally well. Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary and they make excellent progress during lessons. The curriculum stimulates pupils’ curiosity in all subjects. Pupils’ academic outcomes are high compared to pupils nationally and the school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding’. Read the full report here »

It is a very exciting time at Hacton Primary, with the construction of a brand new purpose built 21st century school underway that is likely to be completed in the latter part of 2016. The school will increase in size from 2 to 3 form entry in Reception from September 2016.

Thank you again to our staff, governors, families and our amazing pupils for helping make Hacton a truly outstanding school.

Key Stage 2 pupils should walk though the Key Stage 1 playground, around the side of the school and wait in the Key Stage 2 playground as normal. The Goodwood Avenue gates will remain closed until the beginning of next term.
