Community Code

At Headcorn Primary School, we want our pupils, staff and school families to feel welcomed, safe and invested in and able to succeed as part of our school community.  Our Community Code is ‘Learning for life…’

The expectation is that every one of us has a responsibility to demonstrate our Core Values and our Community Code and that these will be demonstrated:
