A very warm welcome to Hayfield Primary School. We hope that you enjoy exploring our website and that you learn lots about life at our school.

Hayfield is a picturesque village that lies at the foot of Kinder Scout in the Derbyshire Peak District. Our beautiful school is situated to the west of the village centre and caters for children, aged 4-11, who live in the village and surrounding area. We are an integral part of the community in this vibrant village and our children enjoy taking part in many community events such as Apple Day, Well Dressing and The May Queen festival.

We firmly believe that the children are our richest resource and we seek to foster a love of learning and life.Our fundamental aim is to help prepare your children to value and embrace their future; to be resilient and independent learners in this rapidly changing world.

We are all very proud to work here. It is a happy and safe place (and stunning location!) for children to learn and grow. We work extremely hard to help every child achieve their full potential during their time with us.  

When they step through our door, many visitors comment upon the warm and friendly atmosphere in school and how happy, polite and well behaved our children are.  

We want to build positive, honest and open relationships with all our parents and carers.  We have a firm belief that the education of your child is very much a shared responsibility.

Finally, we have an open door policy which means that you are always welcome to come and talk to us if you have any questions or issues that you would like to raise.

I look forward to meeting you soon
