Welcome to Hindlip CE Voluntarily Controlled First School

'Love and respect ourselves, others and God's world'.

Thank you for visiting our website and taking an interest in our school. Hindlip CE VC First School is a small village school in Fernhill Heath, Worcestershire. We are a happy, caring school with a close family feel and a strong Christian ethos. Our hard working team of inspirational staff and governors are committed to providing the best possible education for all of our children through a broad, balanced and inclusive curriculum, underpinned by our Christian vision and values.

Our Christian vision is our commitment to serving with Grace. We give our very best to our school communities and every individual within our communities, adult and child alike.

‘Grace is a gift from God.’ (Ephesians 2:8)

In reflecting Grace, God’s gift of unmerited favour, it is imperative that we offer the same in serving others, simply because they are them. Not because of merit, attainment or significance but through love and forgiveness.

“Go and do likewise” (Luke 10:37)

In serving with Grace we enable every individual to flourish. Every child is treated as unique and special. By working together our children will grow in wisdom; cultivate a wide-ranging knowledge that will help broaden life chances; develop the spiritual, intellectual and emotional resources they need to live a good life; and develop the character to live well together in community.

Our vision is supported by the values we teach, the Christian Values chosen by our whole community. Values of:

 Love Respect Friendship Truthfulness Courage Perseverance

We provide a broad, balanced and inclusive curriculum which allows every child to flourish and develop the skills they need in life. Children thoroughly enjoy coming to our school. The dedicated team of staff work hard to ensure that every aspect of life is safe, happy, stimulating and productive. Our high academic standards and an outstanding level of personal and spiritual care have been celebrated by the children, parents and inspectors alike over the years.

As well as providing rich and vibrant learning experiences in the classroom we seek to give our pupils a wide range of extra-curricular experiences including music, sport and the dramatic arts. With our Breakfast Club and with Little Deer Afterschool Club we are able to offer an extended day to our pupils and working parents.

We are always looking at how we can improve what we offer our children. We also work within a school federation, with Tibberton CE First School, providing additional opportunities to work together and beyond our setting.

Exploring the information on our website will provide a flavour of what life is like at our school, for example, our weekly newsletters or our regular Radio Club podcasts. We would encourage you to visit us to see the school in action, meet our staff and pupils and discover for yourself how your child could thrive here. Together we will strive in all that we do to:

'Love and respect ourselves, others and God's world'.

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The absolute value of each and every child drives our determination that every child has the right to feel safe and be safe, the right to learn, and the right to be treated with respect.

I am proud to be Executive Headteacher of Hindlip First School.
