Welcome to South Hill Primary School. Our school is set in beautiful grounds in the heart of Hemel Hempstead. We aim to provide the best education for the children in our care, within a nurturing and supportive environment that places pupil’s learning, development and wellbeing as our main priority. We have a team of dedicated and highly committed professionals who put the education and happiness of your child at the heart of everything they do. We hugely value the relationship between the school and parents and we endeavour to work closely with parents in a trusting relationship sharing the responsibility for your child’s education and wellbeing. Our pupils are a credit to our school and we hope your child has a positive, fun and memorable learning experience as part of our South Hill Family.
Our Mission Statement “Building Character, Learning Together”
“South Hill Primary school builds the leaders of tomorrow. It nurtures young people who are happy, resourceful, reflective, caring and resilient; who develop a lifelong love of learning and who celebrate diversity, collaboration and excellence in all aspects of our school community.”
We aim to enable our pupils to develop skills and knowledge as independent learners in a cooperative environment in which everyone is valued as part of our school community. We aim to nurture confidence and resilience in all our pupils.

We are committed to ensuring we offer our pupils a curriculum that is creative and tailored to their needs. My role, amongst other headship duties, will be to monitor standards across the school ensuring the curriculum is taught effectively and to a high standard. The Teaching and learning team ensure that high expectations are at the forefront of our learning walks, book monitoring and lesson drop-ins. We aim to ensure that the pupils at South Hill experience a consistent ‘daily diet’ of learning and that they learn in an environment which builds confidence. Our Creative Curriculum is key to building skills and developing curiosity. We want our learners to take risks and learn from errors in order to build resilience and an enjoyment of learning.
This year our school was proud to achieve the Wellbeing award. We take pride in the pastoral support we offer our pupils and families alike. As well as my headship duties, I will continue to be the Wellbeing lead, supporting pupils’ personal development and welfare in order for them to access the curriculum. Our wellbeing team supports and signposts families to services such as Gade Schools Family Support. Through our therapeutic approach to behaviour we actively promote resilience and independence which includes our peer mediation scheme. We want to work in partnership with parents to ensure all our pupils are happy learners here at South Hill.
