John Hellins Primary School

John Hellins PrimaryFantastic, to spend two days with John Hellins Primary School, Potterspury, (in the district of South Northamptonshire with Milton Keynes as the nearest main town.)

We were joined by colleagues from visiting schools, including Deanshanger Primary School, Yardley Gobion CE Primary School, Towcester C of E Primary School, Bugbrooke, Glapthorn C.E. Lower School, Rothersthorpe Primary School, The Abbey Primary School, Havelock Infant School, Havelock Junior School and East Hunsbury Primary School.


Thank you to Jodie Matthews, Headteacher at John Hellins Primary School:

Jodie MatthewsJohn Hellins is a village primary school in South Northamptonshire. Our ethos is simple – we strive to be the best we can be in everything we do and in all aspects of school life. We set ourselves challenging targets and have extremely high expectations of ourselves. School life at John Hellins is exciting, motivating and inspiring and is full of real life and immersive learning experiences.

Our staff are passionate about their own learning and development, and connect with other educators on Twitter; this is how we first connected with Tim. Following our 4 year talk for writing journey we are ready to take our writing one step further. We feel that adding tech to our writing journey will bring some marvellous results, particularly with those children who struggle to engage. It’s exciting to see where this will take us!

On our 2 days with Tim and Sarah, we will be joined by the staff from Deanshanger Primary School and teachers from several other local schools. We are excited by the opportunity this will give us for collaborative working.

    A very inspiring and enjoyable day – thank you.
    I want to have a go at all the things you suggested now with my own class!
    I will also introduce my own kids at home to many of the activities and ideas.
    I would definitely recommend this training to other schools.

    Such a fantastic and informative day at John Hellins. I’ve already had elephants and dinosaurs in my house, which my daughter absolutely loved! I can’t wait to try all the ideas out in school! Thank you!
