Some feedback from a visitor to our Open Day in October.
Anyone visiting Hatch Beauchamp Primary School will be completely charmed, as I was today when I attended their open morning. Greeted by the acting Head teacher, Mr Harnett, there was even a handshake for a delighted three year old, Freddie, the grandson of my friend Jane, both of whom came along with me.
Home-made cakes, and a drink served by the parents, gave time for plenty of chat and it was apparent how proud they were of the relaunched school, singing the praises of the high standard of care, teaching and management by Mr Harnett and Miss Suchacki.
Now for assembly. Totally led by the pupils on the School Council, taking the theme of Respect, we were entertained by sketches, powerpoint presentations and readings. It was definitely not over rehearsed and all the better for it. It was engaging and raised many a smile from the adults sitting at the back on our scaled-down chairs. Ending with rather an amazing fact.There is some kind of Somerset league for quickness of answering times tables, Rockstar Tables is perhaps the name, anyway, where our village primary is top! High five to you Hatch Beauchamp.
It was playtime for the children and no reason for boredom here. What a great outdoor area, with cricket, a vegetable patch, sinks turned into a mud area, a pond and numerous ideas for future developments spinning from Mr Harnett's head as he showed us round the school.
If first impressions are anything to go by you would have to give those classrooms ten out of ten for immaculate, creative displays and evidence of serious work. So I had rather a lovely time. And the reason was not just the polished school and new uniform, but meeting people who cared.
It goes back to the theme of that assembly: Respect. Hatch Beauchamp, you have it. Go take a look.
