Christopher Hatton provides an outstanding quality of education for all its pupils.

Our School

The school is organised into eight classes: 

Foundation Stage: Nursery and Reception

Key Stage One: Years 1 and 2

Key Stage Two: Years 3 to 6.

All teaching is in mixed ability classes, with a maximum of 30 pupils.

The School Day

Reception           9.00am - 3.25pm

Infant                 9.00am - 3.30pm

Junior                 9.00am - 3.35pm

Start of the day

The playground gates open at 8.45am, children are supervised until the bell rings at 8.55am when the school doors open.

  • Parents / carers of Foundation Stage and Key Stage One are welcome to come into the classroom with their child from 9.00 to 9.15.  In Key Stage Two parents are encouraged to visit on Tuesdays and Fridays. This is a chance for you to settle your child in to class, to read with them and to help them to choose a book.

End of the day

  • Pupils are taken to the playground to be collected by their parents.

Parent’s responsibility

  • Parents are encouraged to collect their child from the relevant area; this avoids confusion and congestion at collection points.
  • Parents must inform their child’s class teacher in advance if another adult is collecting your child, as this helps to avoid confusion.
  • Parents must phone the school office if they are delayed and will not be able to collect their child on time. On arrival the office staff will let you know which teacher is caring for late children.


At Christopher Hatton the safety and protection of children is paramount. We have clear policies and procedures which inform our work.
If you are at all worried that a child is being abused or neglected you should share your concerns with Gwen who is the designated child protection lead for the school. In emergencies contact the police, or Camden's safeguarding team.
If there are any concerns about your child's safety or well being, you will be closely involved in the process, unless it is deemed unsafe to do so.
