Values and Ethos

Welcome to our website and thank you for taking an interest in our school. Paper copies of this website are available on request.

As part of The Prince Regent Street Trust, we work collaboratively to ensure the best outcomes for all our pupils. Our trust is made up of Hartburn Primary, Village Primary and Wolviston Primary.

Hartburn Primary is a larger than average primary school located in Stockton-on-Tees in the North East of England. As both a parent and an experienced Head Teacher, I understand how important good relationships are between home and school. Our school is regarded as an integral part of the local community and we all work in partnership to ensure our pupils are a credit to us all.

Hartburn Primary school is a highly effective organisation but we will never be complacent. The school is forward facing and determined to provide a bespoke curriculum to meet the needs of the children it serves. Every child deserves to maximise their full potential; leaders and staff are relentlessly ambitious and consistently aim for outstanding outcomes in all aspects of the schools’ work. This is proven through consistently high outcomes which have been sustained over the last five years. 

The promotion of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development underpins all aspects of children’s learning and their experiences at school. This is evidenced in the high standards of behaviour throughout the school, the high levels of engagement and enjoyment seen in lessons and the positive relationships between all parts of the school community. Our pupils are shining examples of our school ethos; their conduct is exemplary and they demonstrate impeccable manners on a daily basis.

Our pupils enjoy an engaging curriculum filled with real life experiences which foster independence, collaboration and determination to succeed; essential skills for life. We actively promote a culture of resilience where pupils feel safe and encouraged to problem solve, question, debate and express opinions.

Our classes enjoy learning through themed topics, which include lots of rich experiences to bring the curriculum to life. All pupils throughout school learn and in and outside the classroom and on educational visits. The Hartburn pond and outdoor classroom form part of our eco area where pupils enjoy learning about plants, animals, conservation and growing their own food. We are very proud to announce that we have achieved our Bronze Eco Award and are working hard to achieve our Green Flag Award.

We are an incredibly health conscious school; healthy eating and fitness is very important to us. Skilled sports coaches lead lessons in a wide range of sports from gymnastics to cricket. We also offer daily sports clubs; this after-school provision caters for all interests. We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the Gold Award for competitive sports again! 

As well as our academic achievements, we encourage our pupils to excel in all areas including the arts, sport and languages and we have some extremely talented pupils. By the end of Key Stage 2, our experienced performers bring audiences to tears with their maturity and empathy. Our weekly ‘Live Lounge’ social media posts are examples of how we nurture performance skills for a real audience to foster confidence and bring the community together to celebrate success. 

Hartburn Primary School is a Rights Respecting School and our ethos actively promotes British Values and Global Learning. Everything we do is child centred. We are proud of our heritage and incredibly proud to be part of the larger Stockton community.

I am extremely proud to be the Head of School at Hartburn Primary School. If you would like to find out more about what we have to offer please contact the school on 01642 646001 or email hartburn@sbcschools.org.uk
