Welcome to Hawthorn Tree Primary School website!
I hope it gives you a flavour of our school, its ethos and belief's. We are a busy and friendly school, with lots always going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils so please take the time to browse through all the news, events, class pages and related educational links.
Hawthorn Tree School holds an important position as a long-established and highly-regarded school within the Boston community. Our curriculum is exciting and inspires our pupils to love life-long learning, indeed, our motto 'Live to Learn - Learn to Live' reflects this. Our vision for each child is that they are nurtured individually and work towards their personal best, in a caring atmosphere which reflects British values. Within our school family everybody is somebody - each child is valued and appreciated, their unique gifts and talents are championed and learning from mistakes encouraged.
Our pupils achieve great results and academic standards, all of which are very important to us. We also love PE and sports, music, performing arts, environmental and worldwide learning and produce fabulous art work across a broad curriculum. All pupils are offered a wide range of opportunities, activities and after-school clubs from expertise within school and also from outside providers. Visitors to the school and educational visits provide opportunities to extend learning to the wider learning environment and provide aspiration for now and the future.
We believe that children learn best when home and school work together for their benefit. Our partner organisation 'Hawthorn Tree Community Children's Centre', provides long-term preschool playgroups and on a session basis, Breakfast Club each morning from 8am and After School Club to 6pm, in addition to this the Centre provides Holiday Club on a session basis throughout all school holidays.
Care and safety of the individual is seen as central to the roles of all members of staff and governors. Arrangements for safeguarding pupils are firmly established in Hawthorn Tree School's policies and working practices and daily emphasis through the ethos of the school.
At Hawthorn Tree School we have hard-working, passionate staff, parents/carers, pupils and governors who work together to achieve a shared vision for a school community where everyone can feel safe and happy and can achieve to their personal, social and academic potential.
