Our Facilities

Foundation Stage Area

Children have a natural desire to learn and at Keep Hatch we capture this eagerness from the very first time pupils enter the school in our foundation stage. The children have the opportunity to explore, investigate and engage with their surroundings and with a range of resources.

Learning experiences reflect pupils’ interests and the practical and informal ways in which children of foundation age learn. At Keep Hatch we believe children should receive a balance of child-initiated and adult-led learning utilising the range of resources both indoors and out.

Full-Sized Sports Hall

Children use the Sports Hall regularly for their weekly PE lessons; assemblies; and for performances. It is well-equipped with wall bars and large screens.

The Music Suite

We are passionate about the arts at Keep Hatch. To support a rounded learning experience we have a standalone music suite, fully equipped with a wide range of musical instruments to enrich the teaching of music across the school.

Computing Curriculum Resources

The school has three class sets of Chrome Books which are stored on trolleys and these are wheeled to children’s classrooms for Computing lessons. These resources enable children to develop and deepen their Computing knowledge and skills. All children across the school have a weekly timetabled Computing lesson.

The Swimming Pool

During the second half of the summer term, all children, from Foundation Stage to Year 6, participate in weekly swimming lessons in our own heated outdoor swimming pool. Keep Hatch Parents Association also open the pool after school during the summer term to allow the children the opportunity to enjoy themselves and further develop their swimming skills and confidence in the water.

Outdoor Space

Whilst children love to learn and we make every effort to ensure that lessons are active and invigorating, pupils are still full of energy. We are extremely lucky with our outdoor space, comprising a large field area, ‘the fort’ adventure/climbing zone and two separate playgrounds that the children have access to at play time. Children in Early Years Foundation Stage have their own dedicated outdoor area to help them with their physical development. The field and playground areas are used for a wide range of extra-curricular sports activities including football, cross country, athletics and netball.
