Welcome from the Headteacher
We are a friendly one-form entry school, situated in the village of Debenham in the heart of Suffolk. As well as Debenham, our school also serves the nearby villages of Kenton, Winston, Pettaugh, Aspall and part of Rishangles. We have a Nursery class with 20 places and seven single aged-group classes for children aged 4-11. Our school site also hosts the Roundabout Pre-school and the Debenham Village Library.
Our school is set in large grounds, which includes a forest schools area and a large purpose built Early Years outdoor learning space. Indoors our shared learning areas are used for group work, practical learning and to provide for the specific needs of groups or individuals, who require additional support. To help children develop their social and emotional skills, our trained teaching assistant works with children in The Space.
The relationships and the expectations we have of all members of our School family are underpinned by Christian values. We are proud of the high standards of behaviour, caring and responsible attitudes and enthusiasm for learning that our children demonstrate. Our dedicated and experienced staff and governors take pride in the opportunities offered to the children in our care.
We hope that our website gives you a flavour of school life at Sir Robert Hitcham CEVAP School. You are warmly welcome to visit our school and see us in operation, and we would be delighted to show you how the children learn and play. To arrange a convenient time, please don’t hesitate to phone, email or call in at the School Office - firstname.lastname@example.org, 01728 860201.
Mrs Julia van Ek, Headteacher
