Dear parents, carers and visitors,
Welcome to our school website. Hipswell Church of England Primary School is located in Catterick Garrison near the picturesque market town of Richmond and close to the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales. Our close links with St. John’s Church, our school vision and core Christian values contribute to our caring, friendly ‘family feel’ in which we ‘delight in living, learning and celebrating together’.
At Hipswell, we are particularly experienced in integrating children successfully from military and non-military backgrounds, with two thirds of our pupils coming from Service backgrounds. We are committed to supporting pupils’ emotional wellbeing and have high expectations to encourage all pupils to reach their full potential. This was reflected in our most recent Ofsted Report (March 2018): “The provision for pupils’ personal development and welfare is a key strength of the school. You and your staff go the ‘extra mile’ to support the emotional welfare of pupils…Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary in lessons, around school and at breaktimes.”
