Welcome message from our Headteacher, Miss Clare Lucas.
…putting children at the heart of all we think, say and do
I am very proud to be Headteacher of Hodge Hill Primary School, the school my siblings and I all attended as children. We are a rapidly improving school who are continually evolving to achieve excellence. Excellence not only in our academic outcomes but excellence in all our learning, conduct and wider contribution to each other, our school, our Trust and wider community.
We recognise that to achieve excellence we cannot stand still. We recognise that we have to continually reflect, review and improve. The emphasis on all that we do is to:
We welcome the opportunity to celebrate achievement, to capture both those elements of success but also the not so great moments and turn these, through analysis, innovation, risk taking and challenge into even greater success.
We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with others both locally, nationally and internationally.
We accept that to achieve excellence we must persevere while holding onto our core virtues and our core moral and educational purpose.
We believe that everyone matters, that we must care for each other and about each other and that we are partners as we navigate through our self-development.
Welcome to Hodge Hill Primary School where excellence is achieved because we put our children at the heart of all we think, say and do.
Welcome message from Pat Smart, CEO
Conway Primary School and Greet Primary School formed Create Partnership Trust in September 2016. We were joined in January 2017 by Hodge Hill Primary School and Brookfields is our newest member, joining in November 2018. Create is a multi-academy trust which is committed to achieving the best for all children across the three schools through a close collaborative partnership.
The three broad aims of the Trust are:
- To maintain current strengths and create secure and successful futures for all stakeholders in Create Partnership Trust schools, based on a collaborative culture with shared values and clear moral purpose.
- To ensure that all schools in Create Partnership Trust become forward thinking and dynamic centres of learning excellence.
- To develop strong working partnerships internally and externally, which have a positive impact on children's achievement, safety and well-being.
Greet, Conway, Hodge Hill and Brookfields work closely together - developing policies, sharing good practice and supporting and challenging each other. We want to see every child receive a broad and balanced education, be happy and safe and well prepared for moving on to their secondary school.
We are also very committed to developing our high quality staff and leaders who work hard individually and in their teams. The Trust supports their skills development and helps them to identify a career path so that they can be even more effective in ensuring that the children make best progress personally, academically and socially.
I am the CEO with responsibility for the whole of the Trust - the four schools and Greet Teaching School which has a special designation to be outward-facing in order to bring more teachers into the profession, to develop leaders and to provide support to other schools in Birmingham by working closely with external partners, such as the Birmingham Education Partnership.
We are building Create by focusing on trusting relationships as the root of all our work. We have high expectations of everyone and we are never complacent - constantly striving to improve on our previous best. We are creating futures for everyone - our staff, our families and communities and, of course, our children.
We look forward to a positive future, great collective achievement and working with our schools, families and communities in partnership. We are stronger together.
