“Hamworthy Park is a wonderful place because everyone looks after each other.” Year 6 pupil

School organisation

Hamworthy Park Junior School was built in the early 1970's on a beautiful and spacious site with views of Poole Harbour, the Purbecks and Brownsea Island. The children have the privilege of being able to regularly use our indoor heated swimming pool: each school year all children are offered the opportunity to swim. We have a special area for Food Technology and group work which enriches our curriculum provision.

The school consists of four year groups:-

  Year 3 (7 - 8 years)

  Year 4 (8 - 9 years) 

  Year 5 (9 - 10 years)     

  Year 6 (10 - 11 years)     

All children in Key Stage 2 are based in classes of up to 30 and are the responsibility of the class teacher. Throughout the year each child builds a special relationship with other class members, various teaching assistants and their teacher.  The class teacher is always available at the end of a school day to give advice and information to parents/carers, should they wish to discuss any issues which may affect their child’s learning.

For the majority of the curriculum the children are taught by their class teacher or other teachers within their year group. At other times, they may be taught specialist subjects by other staff. 

"This year we have introduced some new workshops to explore what 'Anti Bullying Week' means to us as a school. We looked at how random acts of kindness can bring a smile to peoples faces and how important it is to recognise our strengths and all the things that make us unique and awesome!
