Values and Ethos

Hawthorn Park is a school that values the central role of high quality skills of English and Mathematics alongside the necessary skills to be able to maximise the benefits of modern technology. We provide a purposeful, stimulating, emotionally stable and safe environment where children take risks with their learning and develop the ability to think, adapt and take responsibility for their actions based on reasoned choices.

We develop the social skills, attitudes, self worth and moral values of our children to enable them to become valued members of the community and we promote a love of activity, sport and arts, which we hope will remain with the children as they move towards adult life.

Hawthorn Park is a socially inclusive school and equal opportunities are given to every child regardless of ability, race, colour, creed, gender, sexual orientation or disability.
