Overview

The William Hogarth School is situated in leafy Chiswick, well connected to the centre of London and within the buzz of dynamic West London.  The school was rated ‘good’ in its 2014 Ofsted Inspection. It is a growing school with a friendly, committed and energetic staff team and a thriving community.

AboutUs

The William Hogarth School opened in October 2001 and is sited in the building of the old Hogarth Primary School.  Eager not to lose any connections with Hogarth, famous Chiswick resident, artist and philanthropist, we have reflected the link in our school logo, a paint palette, and naming each of our classes after famous painters. They are also recognised in the art work of the school and the value put on artistic and creative activities. We are a community school and committed to working in partnership with all members of the community.

The school is a bright, spacious building with two large halls and ongoing programme of work to meet the needs of our growing school community.  It has a large and well equipped stock of ICT equipment, with enough computers for a whole class to work on their computer skills together. The school has a purpose built art room which was donated by the artist Sir Peter Blake and designed by his wife Chrissie. A library is available for the children to borrow books.  There are two playgrounds featuring an adventure climbing frame, playground seating, a ball court for team games and a wildlife and conservation area.

Local Area and Transport

Chiswick

Chiswick in London is one of those areas that is perfect for those who want the advantages of the capital, but don’t want to live in the hustle and bustle of a busy city. Chiswick is safe, quiet, affluent and full of leafy green areas. The former fishing village is a popular choice among young families down to its wealth of high-performing primary schools. It also links well with the rest of the world, quite literally as Heathrow is not far away – twenty minutes by car. If that’s not enough, Chiswick is also a foodie haven, with dozens of great cafes, gastro pubs, delicatessens and restaurants to choose from. Shopping offers a perfect mix of high street chains to independent sellers.

CPD

 

CPD is at the forefront of all that we do within school.  All staff are considered to be on their own learning journey and are encouraged and expected to challenge thiermselves each year and add to their professional portfolio.

Twilight inset sessions run each week througout the year.  In addition, inset days are planned and may be differentiated to meet the needs of all members.

We join with the other schools within the local area and learn from each other and visit good practice in other settings.  Members of staff take on the roles of mentor and coach to colleagues and a supportive performance management system is in place to ensure staff are challenged and supported.  The school works hard to develop successful practitioners and create future school leaders.

Staff Profile - Hajar Chouki

 

I began my career at The William Hogarth Primary school a year ago as an NQT. I remember feeling nervous about my first year of teaching and whether I would settle into a new school surrounding not knowing anyone. Let’s just say I shouldn’t have worried, I was welcomed by everyone and everyone was so kind and friendly! I started off in year one and was very grateful to have worked with an experienced, supportive and outstanding teacher.

Throughout the year I was supported in every element in my career through the staff, NQT mentor and other NQTs. As the year progressed, I developed in confidence and teaching and I couldn’t have done this without the staff and school. I was given the opportunity to improve my teaching by attending courses organised by my NQT mentor as well as NQT courses. I built relationships with teachers at other schools in Hounslow and this helped me develop the emotional well-being of children in my own class.

I have been given many opportunities to develop as a teacher through outside CPD and support within the school. Recently, as a school we have begun to take on a peer coaching approach to improve teaching and learning across the school. I was given the opportunity to watch experienced members of staff teach. This has been a fantastic way to develop as a teacher and trial different techniques.

This is only my second year at The William Hogarth Primary School but I have been on a fantastic journey. I am fortunate to work in a friendly and caring school with passionate staff. The staff always care and will go out of their way to help! They will always check to see if you are ok and that is one of the many things I adore about working here! A gloomy day is ALWAYS brightened up by staff and children!

The William Hogarth School has been a fantastic place to develop as teacher. It really has allowed and encouraged me to develop my own style of teaching and be myself in the classroom over the last five-and-a-half years. This would not have been possible without excellent camaraderie amongst the staff.

In time, as PE coordinator, I have seen the improvement in the teaching of PE through the school, using the School Sports Funding to bring in a PE teacher from Chiswick School to work alongside staff to help improve their confidence and upskill them in the teaching of PE. This support has enabled the pupils to make great improvements in PE and Sport. Also the implementation of the Real PE scheme has allowed pupils to improve their fundamental movement skills. 

More recently, I was fortunate enough to become Phase Leader for the Upper School (Years 4, 5 & 6). This has brought along a different type of challenge to that of just being a class teacher. I have enjoyed these challenges, thanks to superb CPD course  which the SLT sent me on, 'how to be a middle leader'. The course helped me learn  to analyse data and how to look at it in terms of whole school improvement, implementing strategies across the school to aid whole school improvement, and how to get the best out of people you are working with. 

Since becoming a middle leader, I have also grown to enjoy putting on the Christmas Productions, but as I mentioned earlier, it would not be possible without great camaraderie and a fantastic Upper Phase Team.
