Our principle aim: To provide the best possible education for each 

child, within the context of a caring, Christian community.

On behalf of everyone at St Ippolyts C of E Primary School, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you and your family. Our website aims to give you an insight into the life of our school and illustrate what makes St Ippolyts School special to those who teach, work and learn here.

Founded in 1847, St Ippolyts Primary is a Voluntary Aided Church of England School enjoying strong links with St Ippolyts Church and within the Diocese of St Albans. Our principal aim is to provide the best possible education for each individual child, underpinned by Christian Values.

We believe that each child is unique and we seek to provide academic, emotional, social and spiritual support for each one, working in partnership with parents and families. We want our children to be spirited individuals who embrace challenge, think creatively, value achievement and strive to be the best they can be. We encourage each of our learners to actively contribute to our community and to support others.

At St Ippolyts we strive to provide a broad and stimulating curriculum, full of opportunities to excite and motivate our children. We foster relationships built on mutual respect and care for each other and we are extremely proud of all that goes on here.

If you would like to visit us to see our wonderful children in action, you would be most welcome; please telephone the school office to make an appointment and I would be delighted to show you around.

We have had a very busy week! It was lovely to see lots of you during our open session on Monday. Class 3, you were all amazing in our class assembly! I am so proud of you all for learning your lines and your performance within the assembly. You showed the rest of the school and your grown-ups what we have learnt during our rainforest topic and I am sure they were all very proud of you. In between practising for our assembly we have managed to research and create a non-chronological report about an animal. We found facts and information from...

It was lovely to see a number of parents on Monday at the Open Session. I do hope you managed to get the chance to look around and in books. I can’t believe a half term has gone already, where is this year going? In Class 5 we continued to look at persuasive writing. As it was Safer Internet Day this week we decided as a class to use this, as the basis of our work. As a class we of course reminded ourselves of ‘AFOREST’ approach in order to make sure we had everything in our writing.  I was very proud of the children listening to them an...

We have had a busy week in class 2. We have found out lots of information about the Jungle such as mangrove forests, where to find jungles, the climate.   In maths we have been learning the time.

This week in Class One was the end of our dinosaur topic and so we decided to do lots of fun, creative dinosaur activities in our play and learn time. On Monday, we began to learn about volcanoes and we used the Internet, to find out information about what they look like and how they work. The children already knew a huge amount about them and some had even seen a volcano in real life! We had some great discussions about them using scientific vocabulary. Another activity we have loved this week, was baking our own dinosaur biscuits. We all had ...
