Introduction

The entrance to New Hall Primary School

At New Hall we love to learn!

New Hall Primary and Children's Centre is located in Sutton Coldfield in the north area of Birmingham Local Authority. We are a one and a half form entry school, with a part time Nursery class (mornings only) within our Early Years Foundation Stage.

The school currently has about 360 pupils on roll from 3 to11 years. This is made up of two Reception (up to 5 years) classes, four Key Stage 1 (5 to 7 years) classes and eight Key Stage 2 (7 to 11 years) classes.

New Hall Children's Centre (0 to 5 years) is integral to the school community and the services we deliver from here help support all families.

We are fortunate to have a lovely environment for all to enjoy, with extensive playgrounds, fields, play equipment and even a swimming pool on site, which all pupils access. There is a separate dining room for school lunches and a hall. We have a school library, Cyber Café (IT) with 32 PCs as well as iPads and ten roaming laptops which are accessible to all.

Our purpose built facilities provide ample opportunities for families to come and experience all that we have to offer.

The school mission statement is:

LOVE TO LEARN

At New Hall Primary and Children's Centre we aim to foster self esteem, confidence and independence, flourishing within a calm secure environment.

It is a place where children are encouraged to aim high, develop a love of learning, think positively and develop the ability to reflect. We will aim to nurture these from birth.

Mutual respect is encouraged for each other and our surroundings. Diversity and inclusion is promoted.

Through our shared vision we aim to recognise the values of every individual as well as an awareness of the role they play within their community.

In our community we aim:

  • to keep ourselves safe
  • to make healthy choices
  • to enjoy and achieve
  • to succeed in our futures
  • to make positive contributions.

The school council were instrumental in setting our simple but effective school rules that underpin our mission statement:

Respect yourself, others and the environment

Core Values

Our shared core values arose out of what we believe to be important about people, about society and about learning and knowledge. Core values have a range of differing dimensions and are particularly related to citizenship issues, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils and learning to learn:

  • Learning as a lifelong process: critical curiosity, making connections, challenge, making meaning.
  • Spirituality: developing self-awareness, awareness of others awareness of the world around us, and for some, awareness of a God.
  • Morality: commitment to living and behaving in certain ways.
  • Social development: co-operation and emotional literacy.
  • Cultural development: empathy and valuing difference.
  • Personal development: self esteem, self efficacy, motivation for learning.

Through discussions with staff, parents and pupils, we developed our key common that the school community shares:

  • Wonder
  • Honesty
  • Friendship
  • Acceptance
