Headteacher Message

Welcome to Temple Herdewyke Primary School website.  We hope you will find it informative and that it will provide you with an insght into life at the school.  We aim to be a values based, include school at the heart of our community. We are proud to be a caring school where everybody is welcomed and valued.  

We believe it is important to develop the whole child, so they become a confident, resilient, well-rounded individual who is equipped with all the skills to lead a successful and rewarding life. Children at Temple Herdewyke work as part of a team, believe in themselves and are confident to face challenges.  We value the abilities and talents of our children and emphasise their positive qualities and achievements.

We aim to develop these qualities through high expectations, good relationships in a consistent, stimulating and enjoyable learning environment.  We seek to inspire everyone in our care so that they are proud of their achievements and develop a love of learning.  We do this through providing children with memorable learning opportunities and ensure children are encouraged, supported and challenged.  Central to our philosophy is that children learn best when they are happy, cared for and inspired.

I am proud to be the Headteacher of such a fantastic school.

David Hibbert, Headteacher
