Hayton CofE Primary School
Our school provides a safe and happy environment founded on Christian values, where everyone works together to encourage children to achieve their full potential within society. The village of Hayton is located 3 miles from the market town of Brampton and 7 miles from the city of Carlisle. The school is situated in the centre of the village adjacent to St Mary Magdalene Parish Church. Although, traditionally, most have moved on to William Howard School, some children have also gone to, amongst other schools, Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and Austin Friars.
The original school building dates from 1818 and contains a sports hall and library. During the last 10 years, much building has taken place, including the addition of new classrooms, toilet facilities, office space and, in Autumn 2011, our ICT provision was updated so that each pupil in an entire class can be accommodated with their own computer. Most recently, in 2014, there has been the addition of one more classroom, allowing us to have separate classes for children from Years 1 to 6 inclusive.
The new classroom is designed as a transition room for Year 6 before leaving Primary as it is based on a secondary style format with a more formal layout and fewer visual displays. Our outdoor provision is excellent with a superb sports field and hard surface playground which has panoramic views over the Lake District hills and surrounding countryside. In addition, we have a quiet garden/play area situated outside the Early Years classroom – known by the children as the ‘Secret Garden’ which also contains a vegetable patch and greenhouse.

Hayton School provides a broad and balanced curriculum for all children, which is differentiated to meet individual needs and abilities. Children who are classed as having special education needs (SEND) are those who have different requirements or needs that are surplus to those of their peers in order to fully access the curriculum.
These can be intellectual, behavioural, emotional or physical. Children may have SEND throughout, or at any time during their school career. We ensure that curriculum planning and assessment takes account of the type and extent of the difficulty experienced by the student. This is regarded as personalised learning.
Personalised learning tailors education to individual need, interest and aptitude so as to ensure that every pupil achieves and reaches the highest standards possible, regardless of their background or circumstances. We follow the LA guidelines and Code of Practise regarding the assessment of pupils. We work closely with a variety of specialists to ensure that each child is able to fulfil their potential.
