Hamford Primary Academy is a vibrant school within Academies Enterprise Trust Group that is developing a curriculum relevant for the 21st century. Over the last five years the academy has undergone a significant transformation with a learning community grounded in our core framework (vision, mission, values and colleague pledges). In addition we place great emphasis on developing children’s character in order to prepare them for the challenges that lie ahead in both their education and life. As a result, the six Hamford characteristics of be responsible, be curious, be resilient, have integrity, be compassionate and be reflective, are explicitly taught and embedded through the assemblies and learning opportunities provided across the curriculum.
The Academy ensures that pupils get the very best opportunities to achieve the highest possible outcomes and that high quality learning is at the heart of everything we do. Our curriculum is built on developing the four pillars of:
- Academic skills
- Learning power and growth mindsets
- Vocational opportunities: finding and developing children’s element or ‘spark’
- Philosophy for Children
We pride ourselves on challenging teachers to exceed their potential through effective professional development based on self reflection and self directed learning and active research. Central to this is our teaching and learning blog https://hamfordteachingandlearningblog.wordpress.com/.

- Share our core framework and characteristics outlined above
