Dear Children,

Tomorrow is week 2 of the strangest Summer Term ever. I hope that you are well and keeping up with your learning. I’m in contact with your teachers nearly every day and I can tell you that they are all well and are missing you. In fact, they are missing you so much that they’ve put together a short film for you to enjoy. Before you watch it, I would really like to thank everyone for sending their clips in and especially Mr and Mrs Knight, Mrs Hill and Miss Price for taking the time to put this together. So, just click play, sit back and enjoy.

And remember, ‘Stay safe and be kind!’

Mr. Waller

Welcome to Hempsted C. of E. Primary School

Our school lies in an idyllic village setting, only about 2½km from Gloucester city centre, but isolated from the main urban area by the Gloucester canal. The River Severn to the west actually makes the environs an island! 

We are one of the smallest of the Gloucester City Primary Schools, with a welcoming, family atmosphere, yet aiming to give our children the facilities and opportunities that are normally only on offer at a larger school. And our active parents’ association and close links with St. Swithuns Church keep the school at the heart of the community.
