Hangleton Primary School is a good school with outstanding leadership.
Following the merging of Hangleton Infants and Hangleton Juniors in 2015, the school has gone from strength to strength. It has been a challenge but we are delighted with the outcome as we are now a successful 2 form entry school where we can nurture children from Reception through to Year 6. Read more



child protection and safeguarding

We believe that all children and young people should feel safe and have the right to protection from neglect and abuse, and that their welfare is of paramount importance.
As a school, we pride ourselves on creating a strong safeguarding culture based on trust, confidence, respect and valuing each and every member of the school community to ensure that each individual pupil is appropriately safeguarded in line with the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board policy and procedures.


Safeguarding lead - Mags Newton
Deputy Safeguarding leads - Anna Keene and Jenn Westwood
Nominated child protection and safeguarding Governor - Jennie Wylie.

We are an Anti-Racist school: We want to ensure that that our school community is a place where everyone feels seen, represented and listened to. We want all of our staff to robustly challenge racial inequality by providing anti-racist education to ensure that our pupils contribute to making the world a more equal and fairer place for all. Through modelling awareness, inspiring a sense of curiosity, a conscious effort will be made to amplify and celebrate the achievements of non-dominant cultures and individuals to nurture affirming attitudes and behaviour for the benefit of all.  We are One: We All Belong! 

The way children understand the world evolves as they grow, but it’s never too late to talk to them about equality and racism. Please follow the link below for information about age-appropriate ways to start a conversation and explain that racism is always wrong.
