Our Timothy Hackworth School Vision

May our Rights Respecting school be a happy and enjoyable place for us all to learn; where every one of us is valued and safe in our Timothy Hackworth School family.

May we all be the best that we can be by making a positive difference to each other, our community in Shildon and the wider world in which we all live.

Our School Statement of Intent, embracing RRS

We would like our school, which reflects British Values, to be at the heart of the community, sharing, supporting and learning together with everyone as equals. Our children have the right to high quality learning experiences to help them to be the best that they can be.

We encourage our children to be creative, unique, open-minded and independent individuals, respectful of themselves and of others in our school, our local community and the wider world.

We aim to nurture our children on their journey through life so they can grow into safe, caring, democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British Society and to the world.
