Mission Statement

At Haslemere, we are dedicated to providing the best possible education for every pupil in a safe and stimulating environment. We aim to encourage our children to become reflective, independent learners.
 
Staff at Haslemere have very high expectations of the children and hope that they will leave us as confident, polite and independent young people, ready to meet the challenges of further education and the future. We encourage our young people to aim high and to ‘reach for the stars’, so that they develop a sense of aspiration and ambition for the future.
 
We encourage families to work in partnership with us to achieve our aim, so that our children achieve their full academic potential and develop a life-long love of learning. We have an open-door approach that welcomes pop-in meetings, appointments and emails for communications. We also support parents through regular surveys, workshops, coffee mornings and social events organised by the Friends of Haslemere Parent Teacher Association.
 
We regularly celebrate our children’s achievements, to instil a sense of pride and appreciation for their dedication and endeavour. We actively promote and teach children how to stay safe and live a healthy and active lifestyle, through our excellent PSHCE curriculum. We believe that children should look beyond the walls of our school and consider issues that affect the wider world. To this end, every class ends the week on a Friday afternoon with WoW Time, (Windows on the World), where children might discuss events in the news, hold debates on issues that children raise themselves, discuss how to stay safe and healthy and learn life skills, such as making sensible choices, resisting peer pressure, valuing others’ opinions and appreciating each other’s’ differences.
 
Alongside this, we follow a monthly Values Curriculum, which encourages children to consider principles that embrace all belief systems, such as honesty, co-operation and responsibility. This enables our children to develop a principled approach to life, which will in turn support their future choices and achievements.
