About us

A Welcome Message from the Headteacher, Emma Jacox

I am delighted and honoured to be the new Headteacher at Hawthorn Community Primary School. Our school sits in the very heart of our community and although it has 126 years of heritage, we have our eyes very firmly fixed on the future.


The children at Hawthorn are at the heart of every decision we make. Through our values of Teamwork, Community, Respect, Thoughtfulness, Resilience and Creativity, we have created an environment where our children are keen and enthusiastic to learn. We offer an engaging, broad and balanced curriculum, which aims to spark the children’s curiosity and cultivate a passion for life-long learning. Our curriculum brings knowledge, skills and understanding alive ensuring that whilst our children are learning, they are also having fun and creating a lifetime of memories!

it is important to us that children and parents alike feel a sense of pride and belonging towards Hawthorn. We are committed to creating an inclusive and nurturing school where every child feels safe, valued and encouraged to follow their aspirations. At Hawthorn, our dedicated team of staff work tirelessly to support our children’s wellbeing, achieve high standards and provide opportunities that will shape their futures.

We are proud to be part of Pathfinder Schools and share the Academy Trust’s values of Collaboration, Humanity and Independence. We aim to provide our children with the skills they need for their role in the wider world, so to this end, we also offer a range of extra-curricular clubs, music and sporting opportunities.

We understand how important it is to build good partnerships with our parents. Whether your child is coming to school for the first time or joining Hawthorn from elsewhere, we want to ensure that their school experience not only enables them to fulfil their academic potential but also nurtures their creativity and confidence and supports them in becoming respectful citizens. Most importantly, we want your child to be happy at Hawthorn and to love coming to school. We know that family life gets busy, so we are pleased to offer Breakfast Club, After School Club and Holiday playscheme facilities.

I hope that this website will give you an insight into our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum.  If you would like to know more about Hawthorn Community Primary School please contact us to arrange a visit. You will be very warmly welcomed.
