Welcome to Harestock Primary School
Welcome to Harestock Primary School, a welcoming school which cares deeply about its community within the city of Winchester.
As the headteacher, it gives me immense pleasure to welcome you to our school website, where you can learn more about our ethos and values, our curriculum and the exciting opportunities we offer to our children. A strength of Harestock Primary School is the nurturing, inclusive environment where every child is valued and celebrated for who they are. We encourage our children to explore and learn more about themselves, whilst receiving an excellent standard of education which is exciting and challenging. Our dedicated team of teachers and support staff is committed to providing a stimulating and engaging school experience which will enable our children to thrive during their time at our school and be truly ready for their next stage in life and education. We provide a broad, balanced curriculum which caters for the needs and interests of our children. We have worked hard to ensure our curriculum is relevant, provides opportunities for creative thinking and supports the acquisition of skills required for successful futures, such as problem-solving, emotional intelligence and leadership. This is enhanced by a wide range of extra-curricular activities including school trips, music lessons, drama and dance and many sporting opportunities. I strongly believe that good mental health and well-being is vital. Therefore, at Harestock, we teach children strategies to support their well-being. This enables them to cope with day-to-day challenges and become resilient, confident young people. We care about our whole school community and work with parents and careers to support their needs as well as their children. We believe that good education is a partnership between school, home and the wider community. We value and encourage parental involvement and provide opportunities for you to be included within school life.
We hope that you find our website informative and helpful. You are most welcome to contact the school for further information or to arrange a visit to look around. We look forward to meeting you.
With very best wishes
Mrs Aimée Dear
