Hyde Park Junior School
Hyde Park Schools offers their pupils and staff the opportunity to be creative, innovative, and adventurous in their approach to learning and teaching.
We use approaches and strategies that value effort, perseverance, co-operation, collaboration, problem-solving and leadership skills within an inclusive, happy, and stimulating learning environment.
We place learning at the centre of our school. We aim to encourage children in their strengths, whilst supporting them to embrace new challenges.
Our school philosophy is to provide our children with the best possible all-round education in a safe caring and loving environment. We aim to create a culture where thinking and learning flourish. We hope to lay good foundations for future learning so that our children can become full and active members of society.
We also believe that a close and trusting relationship between home and school, working together at all times to promote the aims and ethos of the school, is important to the success of our pupils and the school.
Therefore, the staff and governors recognise the essential involvement of the local community and extend a sincere welcome to all interested parties.
Our school works in seamless cooperation with Hyde Park Infant School to ensure our pupils develop strong values and deep rooted skills and knowledge as they pass through our care. Our school values are kind curious, brave, optimistic, enterprising, inclusive and confident. Our pupils are ready to embrace the future. Our classes are named after key inspirational figures from history who we feel demonstrate the first four of these values and, as such, our pupils learn about these key figures.
Our high quality and highly aspirational curriculum ensures that pupils develop a wide view of their world and the issues within it. They have a strong voice and learn that their voice is important.
Staff are well trained and skilled staff to help children learn, although we encourage each pupil to have independence and ownership of their learning.
The school runs an array of clubs and out of hours activities, some run by school staff and some by external agencies, as well as having wrap around care available to support parents. Within the curriculum we also ensure that all terms include a school trip, a visitor or an onsite experience so that our curriculum is vibrant and alive for pupils to enjoy.

All Plymouth maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with a Special Educational Need/s and or disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible, where families want this to happen.
We are very proud to have an inclusive environment across the school, which encourages high expectations for all children.
All pupils in school receive high-quality teaching. This means that a range of teaching and learning styles are used and those appropriate learning opportunities are offered for all children, matched to their individual needs.
We offer a wide range of approaches to learning for children with additional needs, which are personalised to the child.
