It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to Galley Hill Primary School and Nursery.
We are incredibly proud of our school and the children who learn here. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school community and our positive behaviour policy is based on a therapeutic approach. We value the contribution of parents, staff and governors in ensuring we provide the very best education to all of the children in our care.
As a school community, we are fully committed to our vision and mission statement, which many of our current staff and governors worked together to devise. We actively teach the children the meaning of some of the key vocabulary from within these statements and provide them opportunities wherever possible to become resilient, persevere, be curious and build high aspirations.
Through our engaging curriculum, we teach the children a love of learning and the skills and knowledge needed to be citizens in the 21st century. We take opportunities to promote fundamental British Values and have made pupil well-being a high priority within our school as we feel this is an essential part of our work. We fully understand our role in cultivating our pupils’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural development and provide opportunities throughout the school day and through our range of extra-curricular activities to develop these areas.
The children speak with enthusiasm about our school and their Galley Hill experience. They relish the opportunity to work with their peers as well as children of different ages in our half-termly ‘Learning to Learn Days’ as well as through weekly family assemblies and are grateful for the range of school trips and learning experiences made available to them.
At Galley Hill Primary School and Nursery, we are fully committed to the safeguarding of pupils and take online safety very seriously. With the support of parents, we proactively teach our pupils how to keep themselves safe online.
