Welcome to Hyndburn Park Primary School
Our school is busy, thriving, popular and successful, with everyone involved working hard to help our children to be the best they can and get the most out of their time in school. Our curriculum is designed to promote high standards, develop a love of learning, and encourage children to become independent, thoughtful and considerate members of society. We work hard with families to ensure that every child’s needs are met; that each one is challenged and supported to achieve as much as they can do, and hopefully have fun in the process! We are proud of our school and the improvements we have made to it over the past seven years or so. Our website contains much information, but if there is something else you would like to find out, or if you would like to visit the school, please don’t hesitate to contact us. If you would like a hard copy of any of the information on the website just let us know and we will happily provide what you need.
With very best wishes,
As of the 29.04.19 - Operation Encompass will go live in our school. In conjunction with Lancashire Constabulary, Hyndburn Park is involved in a national initiative called “Operation Encompass”. The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident. Operation Encompass has been created to address this so that by 09:00 on the next school day, the school’s key adult – Mrs Hardwick – will be informed that the child has been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic incident. This knowledge, given to schools through Operation Encompass, allows the provision of immediate early intervention through silent or overt support, depending on the needs and wishes of the child. For more information, please follow the link below.

Return to the Stone Age!
We had a super fun day with a special visitor who shared exciting real artefacts from the stone age including a real woolly mammoth's tooth! We learnt lots of new information and took part in great activities. We even threw spears and had a hunting competition. We made modern day, cave inspired artwork. We investigated about the Mesolithic, Paleoloithic and Neoltithic era's. We followed the journey of the first Stone Age man right through to the bronze age where they began to use metals and Homosapiens survived.
Our residential trip this year took place at Robinwood Activity Centre, Todmorden. The children, many of whom have not spent a night away from home, spent two nights and three days from Monday 20th to Wednesday 22nd May 2019, with Mrs Thompson, Miss Smith and Mr Haslam.
Although many of the children were nervous about partaking in some of the activities including; Giant Swing, caving, zip wire, raft building and the piranha pool, all the children managed to overcome their fears….
The trip was a great success all the children agreed that it was “AMAZING” and didn’t want to return back to school.
Our Garden Gang have been very busy in the past few moths making our garden and planters look fab! The children have planted potatoes in March. which will hopefully ready to harvest early July. They have also enjoyed seeing just how much their rhubarb has grown! Thank you to Zoya from Class 15 for the pictures and to Mrs Mazur for her expert knowledge and help.
EYFS recently enjoyed time in our forest school area hunting for the Gruffalo! The children had been learning all about woodland animals in their theme work and loved the story of the Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. The children and staff had an fantastic time in the forest school searching for the animals from the story, building nature homes for woodland animals and making mud hand prints.
Our Eco Club have been hard at work creating an eco bin using recyclable plastic waste and so ensuring that it doesn't go to landfill. What a fantastic job they have done!
KS1 have really enjoyed drawing pictures with chalks outside in the sunshine! We have some very talented and artistic children!
Our Playground Buddies are all fully trained and qualified with first class training in delivering a range of fun activities and games on the yards. They have all really enjoyed taking part in understanding what a Playground Buddy means and how they can take on a leadership role whilst on duty. Well done to each and every one of you and we have no doubt you are and will continue doing an amazing job!
