Welcome to Hensall Community Primary School. On behalf of the governors, staff and children we are pleased to welcome you to the Hensall Community Primary School website.
We are a friendly and caring school, which provides a stimulating, challenging and safe environment for all children to achieve their full potential.
We are really proud of our school. It is a happy and successful school, with a team of talented, hard-working and committed staff who are dedicated to doing their very best for your child.
We are equally proud of the wonderful young people in our school who impress us on a daily basis with their talent, involvement and commitment. The children are the key to the success of any school and I am delighted that our pupils are well behaved, interested and motivated to learn. Their positive attitudes and enthusiasm contribute greatly to their learning. The children and their learning are at the heart of everything we do.
We take great delight and pride in seeing and sharing in the growth and development of our pupils into well rounded individuals ready for the next steps in their learning journey. High expectations, challenge and support delivered through a relevant, varied and exciting school curriculum are crucial to this.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find the information you are looking for. Please contact the school direct if you have any queries or you would like to visit us and see our wonderful school in action.
Hensall School is a Community Primary School, catering for children between the ages of 4 to 11. The school is administered by North Yorkshire County Council Education Department, through the recently appointed Director of Children and Young People Services, Mr. Peter Dwyer. His offices are at County Hall, Northallerton, North Yorkshire, DL7 8AE.
The school is situated in a pleasant semi-rural location and is attractively presented.
The original school building was constructed in 1856. It was designed and built with the Church, by William Butterfield. It was partly extended in the 1960's. There has been a large extension to modernise the school, which was completed in 1997 and is built to match the original construction. This accommodation includes three classrooms, cloakrooms, toilets including a disabled toilet, office, Head teacher's room, resource area, kitchen and main entrance. In 2005 a new cloakroom, staff room and outdoor learning area for Year 1 and 2 pupils were added. A new classroom has just been built (completed February 2015) which is being used by the Year 1 and 2 pupils. There is an excellent security system; the building has doors fitted with security locks, an electronically operated main entrance and inner door and a CCTV security system in operation.
There is a hard surfaced play area marked out with a netball court and other brightly coloured playground markings. We have a large grass playing field with a play fort and a matted agility area. We have a wild life area with a pond, a quiet area with willow sculptures, a sheltered area for quiet activities and a creative theatre area. There is provision to store bikes during the day.
This is, and will remain, a welcoming, friendly, bright and lively happy place to learn. One where all children feel secure, where good behaviour is expected and where they enjoy learning as they grow.
The school is happy to provide paper copies of all documents free of charge. Documentation can be provided in different text and print according to the needs of the reader. Please contact Mrs James in the office if papers are required.
