Head Teacher’s Welcome
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Havelock Primary School’s website.
Havelock is a well-established school, serving a diverse community in Southall, in the London Borough of Ealing.
We work hard as a team to deliver the best possible outcomes for our children. As a Gold UNICEF Rights Respecting School, we champion the rights of children, to ensure that pupil voice underpins life at our school.
In September 2021 we opened, our Additionally Resourced Provision (ARP) for pupils with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and speech language and communication needs (SLCN). The Unit has 3 classes for 24 primary aged pupils from Reception to year 6.
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum where children are encouraged to be inquisitive, creative thinkers. In 2019 we began to review the whole of our curriculum, starting with the core subjects. We wanted to ensure that learning was challenging, the curriculum was diverse and it was all linked, where possible, with local history.
There are two key elements that run in parallel and complement our curriculum. The first is our ‘Rainbow’ curriculum, supporting the well-being of our pupils. The second is our learning to learn model, called the 5 Rs. Both these approaches ensure that our pupils are responsible and resilient learners.
Every day when I come to work I feel very proud to be the headteacher of this school. Everyone at Havelock works really hard as a team to deliver the best possible education and outcomes for the children. It feels like an exciting place to be for children and staff alike. As a UNICEF Right Respecting school we champion the rights of children and ensure that pupil voice supports and informs our whole school priorities.
Our school motto, chosen by the children, is Success. Nothing Less. This captures the high expectations every stakeholder has in every aspect of school life. We offer an exciting broad and balanced curriculum where children are encouraged to be inquisitive and make a positive contribution.
I hope you find our website informative and useful. If you have any queries or require further support please contact the school office.
