Welcome to our school and website. We have packed it with useful information and interesting events. You will see photographs of some of the many exciting things we do at school and some of the excellent work produced by our children.
Our curriculum provides a broad range of experiences and opportunities. Children learn through themed topics, which we wrap up in imaginative and creative teaching to make learning exciting and memorable.
Our children are fantastic, polite, hardworking and fun to be with, and as such, Hardwick Primary School is a wonderful place to work. We have a strong “CARE” ethos, where all staff strive hard to foster positive relationships with children, parents and visitors. This would not be possible without everyone working together as a team and we are all very proud of our achievements.
We hope you enjoy looking at our website and find it useful. If you cannot find the information you are looking for, please contact the school directly where someone will be happy to help.
Thank you for visiting.

Please be aware of the latest update to the current guidelines from the government.
‘’If one person in any household has a persistent cough or fever, everyone living there must stay at home for 14 days.
This is a change from the 7 day isolation period announced on Friday.
Any pupils who are currently self-isolating should now self-isolate for 14 days rather than 7 from the onset of their symptoms however mild.
Another crucial difference is that whole families now need to self-isolate together even if only one person has symptoms – so if one child is sent home because of symptoms, their siblings should be too. If any children from school are self-isolating and have a sibling who is not symptomatic attending school, the sibling should now be at home too.
Thank you for your support at this time. We will keep you updated with any new developments to the situation.

RE: Arrangements for School Re-opening in September 2020
We are looking forward to welcoming all our children back to school on Thursday 3rd September 2020.
I would like to reassure you that the safety of our school community is our priority. Our risk assessment has been updated to ensure that we have measures in place to minimise any risks, as far as we are able, and is on our school website.
All staff and pupils have access to testing if they develop symptoms of coronavirus. If a pupil or member of staff has a positive test result they will be required to self-isolate at home for 7 days or until their temperature returns to normal. Any pupils and members of staff they have been in close contact with (e.g. the rest of the pupil’s bubble) need to self-isolate for 14 days.
We recognise that some of you may have concerns about your child returning to school and that this can be an unsettling time. If you would like to talk to us about your child and any concerns you have about their return to school, please contact school via email@example.com or on 01332 272249. If your child has an EHC plan please contact our SENCO via firstname.lastname@example.org who will support you and your child with their return to school.
Allocating Pupils to a ‘Bubble’
In line with Department for Education (DfE) guidance, we have made arrangements for all children to attend school as part of a small consistent group, referred to as a ‘bubble’. Children will be in year group bubbles which will remain together throughout the school day and will not interact with other bubbles in school. This is an important measure to limit the spread of any infection. Children from the same family who are in different year groups will be in different bubbles, which is in line with the DfE guidance.
All children need to return to school in September. We have a responsibility to record attendance and follow up any absence, which may mean a fine for non-attendance. Please see our school attendance policy, which is published on our school website.
Maintaining a safe school environment
In accordance with government advice, the following actions for infection control are in place:
1. Displaying coronavirus infection control information posters around the school
2. Emphasising the importance of handwashing for at least 20 seconds with warm water and soap.
Please support your child in understanding the importance of good hygiene.
- Care about each other and our school
- Always do our best
- Remember our manners
- Enjoy learning
