The school is unique and very special. Hetton Primary School has always had a reputation for putting children at the heart of everything it does and having worked with Anne-Maria I know she is driven to get the very best for children in her care. As we move towards the new primary curriculum and the emphasis on personalising the learning opportunities for children I would strongly recommend that elected members think very carefully about the future of a school that has operated on the principles of the new White Paper for many years and has made a difference to the lives of many children and their families. I have travelled the length and breadth of England and across many countries of the world looking at schools: and schools like Hetton Primary are few and far between. It is impossible to judge the costs of a successful and happy childhood on the basis of financial cost alone. Do not lose a school that transforms the lives of the children of Hetton.

Hetton Primary is the heart of their education and our community, if the best interests of the children were considered they would find closing this school is not an OPTION.
