Welcome from the Principal

Nicole Galinis

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Hartley Primary Academy, a two-form entry school set in beautiful grounds within a village setting, which prides itself on being a supportive, nurturing environment where children and staff alike, are Happy Positive Achievers. 

Happy: Because we are all safe, inspired and empowered to be the best we can be.
Positive: Because we all work together, supporting each other with self belief and self motivation.
Achievers: Because we are determined to achieve what we set out to do and more.

Here at Hartley we believe that all children, regardless of differences in need or background, deserve the opportunities to achieve their full potential. Learning is led by the children’s interests and experiences and frequently stretches our children’s knowledge beyond the National Curriculum. Learning is enriched and embedded through use of our lovely outdoor environment, which consists of woodlands, a pond and grassy areas, which not only supports development but also helps our children’s sense of well being.

Our children are encouraged to be balanced, caring, open minded and reflective. We want them to become well rounded, confident, independent citizens who show respect for others and are able to contribute positively to the community, both locally and globally. 

Our Rights and Responsibilities Charter helps us to ensure that all children receive the education and school experience that they deserve.Children are taught that they have the right to be respected along with the responsibility to respect others, the right to be safe and the responsibility not to hurt others, the right to learn and the responsibility to behave sensibly and not disrupt lessons, the right to be heard and the responsibility to listen and the right to be happy and the responsibility to be kind.
