Our curriculum is basically what children are expected to learn in the classroom and how lessons are taught.

Our curriculum enrichment (Enrichment Fridays) provides further excitement and restores fun in the curriculum. Each teacher provides a series of planned activities to reinforce knowledge and skills. The enrichment we attempt to provide ensures the learning goes beyond what is prescribed by the national curriculum.

At Harrold, we know that each learner is unique and special. We also know that learning is more effective when our children enjoy what they are doing. The learning becomes more meaningful and enjoyable when what is being learnt is in a context. We believe that the range of enrichment activities takes our learning a step further for all our children.

Current enrichment activities available to children are:

  • Italian lessons
  • Baking
  • Forest school
  • Art
  • Board games
  • Gymnastics
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.
