The underlying philosophy of Haddon Primary School is to facilitate the lifelong development and growth of students and staff in order that they achieve their full potential as individuals and as members of a healthy local community to take their place in a broader international society. To achieve this, we believe it is essential that parents, students and staff work together in home/school partnership, sharing in the significant decisions and responsibilities and the rewards that come with excellence.

Our mission at Haddon Primary School is to build the social, emotional and motivational capacity of every child to become the best they can be. Our vision is to provide a positive, safe learning community which motivates and supports students to become active learners for the 21st century.

We will work together to create an enterprising learning community dedicated to providing the tools for all students to be active learners who are confident and curious.
