Working at Hunningley

Hunningley Primary Academy is a 'can-do' school, where we find ways to help everybody reach their potential, because every person really matters.

We believe that all children are incredibly important, and by working in partnership with parents and carers, children get the best.      

  • The best possible care
  • The best possible support
  • The best possible education
  • And the best possible opportunity to achieve to their potential

Every parent wants the best for their child, but sometimes we forget how much encouragement and support our children need. That is where our partnership will become very important. We are passionate about learning and believe that learning is the key to securing a future that will be happy and successful. We believe that to be able to learn children need to be happy, confident, understand themselves, understand their feelings and know how to get on with each other and make friends. By working together, we can make sure that education and care go hand-in-hand, to give children an equal opportunity to be their best selves
