    Welcome to Hadnall C.E. Primary School



    'Encourage one another and build each other up'.

    1 Thessalonians 5:11

     Our Vision at Hadnall C.E. Primary School is ‘REACH’:







    Welcome to Hadnall Church of England Primary School - a small village school with a distinct family feel and love at the centre. We believe that the primary school experience should be magical and wondrous, filled with inspiration and happy learning experiences. We are proud to have delightful children along with a talented and passionate staff team.

    At Hadnall, we ‘Encourage one another and build each other up’ (1 Thessalonians 5:11). Our REACH values are at the heart of everything we do, encouraging each other to be the best we can be as we learn and grow in God’s love.


    We reach up by being aspirational, challenging ourselves to be our best and reaching up to God. 

    We reach out by supporting and valuing others, including our school, our community and the wider world. 

    As a Christian school, we also associate this vision with God always being there to help and guide us.

    As a school, this vision is at the heart of all we do.




    Our Ofsted report 2019 states that:

    'There is a close-knit staff team, where everyone is keen to play their part in supporting pupils.'

    'Pupils speak positively about their teachers, their learning experiences, and the good friendships that they make in school.'

    'The atmosphere in school is calming and friendly, which supports an environment conducive to learning.'


    In 2023 the SIAMS inspection stated,

    'Hadnall is a welcoming, friendly and inclusive Church school. Strong leadership has developed a Christian vision that is theologically rooted in 1 Thessalonians 5:11. It is understood by all and supports pupils to reach up and reach out to be their very best.'

    'The deep sense of family and togetherness is palpable, resulting in everyone encouraging one another. Parents appreciate the open-door policy that is offered from the headteacher and every member of staff.'
