About Us

Welcome to the Harrold Primary Academy website. Harrold Primary Academy is part of Meridian Trust (CMAT). The Trust was formed with a simple and clear vision: to ensure high quality education for all at the heart of the local communities.

Our school is situated in the village of Harrold in North Bedfordshire. We are a one-form entry community academy and admit children from four to eleven years old.

Our academy lies in the heart of the community and we seek to create stronger links with all members of our community.

We celebrate and value who we are as a learning community and encourage children to respect each other’s cultures, faiths and traditions. We believe that close cooperation between home and school is essential, and aim to keep parents as informed as possible about the progress their children are making, the methods we use to teach children and ways in which parents can support their children’s learning.

We value parental involvement and our community is important to our school.

Welcome to Harrold Primary Academy

I am extremely delighted and privileged to have the opportunity to welcome you to Harrold Primary Academy.
Harrold Primary Academy is a happy, caring and supportive school. The Academy was formed on the site of Harrold Lower School and Harrold Priory Middle School, opening its doors to the pupils aged 4 - 11 years in September 2017.
We are a small one form entry primary school, serving children from Reception to Year 6.

As a school, we are extremely fortunate to have a spacious school site with a Library, Science lab, Food Technology room and a team of dedicated staff who work hard to deliver exciting, engaging and enjoyable lessons for children at Harrold.

Our vision is that every child has the right to a high quality of learning, where they are treated with respect in a safe and stimulating learning environment. Children actively participate in learning by demonstrating a sense of readiness, where they take responsibility for themselves and the school environment. We help to build resilience in all our children by ensuring that the learning that they experience is a stepped approach with appropriate scaffolding and modelling in place to secure and build improved independent learning.

When children leave Harrold, they are well-equipped to continue achieving throughout secondary school and beyond.
We believe that close cooperation between home and school is essential, and we aim to keep parents as informed as possible about the progress being made by their children and ways in which they can support their children’s learning.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Harrold Primary Academy.

To find out more about the school, please read through our website and do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to visit the school.
