Our Vision

Every child has the right to learn in a safe, happy and stimulating learning environment.

We develop curiosity, encourage responsibility, celebrate perseverance, embrace resilience and promote independent thinkers.

The children of Harrold, irrespective of their starting points, have high expectations of themselves as learners, in order to reach their full potential.

We aim to do this by:

  • Encouraging high expectations in a positive, learning environment
  • Creating a caring community which is enriched by the individual
  • Providing a happy, stimulating learning environment
  • Developing curious and lively minds and encourage the children to think for themselves
  • Encouraging the acquisition of knowledge, concepts and skills which the children will then be able to apply to a variety of situations
  • Helping the children understand the importance of perseverance, resilience and self-discipline
  • Developing the children’s self-confidence so whatever their starting point they can reach their full potential
  • Creating an environment where everyone can work together for the good of the children and the school as a whole
  • Creating a welcoming, happy place where there is politeness, respect and acceptance for all
  • Developing children’s social skills and their ability to work as a team
  • Promoting the importance of a healthy lifestyle by encouraging healthy eating and regular exercise
  • Celebrating our differences


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.
