Curriculum Intent

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

Responsibility – Children will learn self-regulation, including the promotion of a positive, growth mindset and how to manage strong emotions and impulses, identifying how and when to access appropriate support.
Resilience – Children will learn to recognise and manage peer influence and perceived social norms, including the need for peer approval, self-motivation, perseverance, and adaptability.
Readiness – Children will learn self-organisation, time-management, and skills for their future learning, including active listening, teamwork, negotiation, self-advocacy, leadership, and presentation skills, enhancing their prospects in society.
Respect – Children will learn to respect themselves and the rights, values, and opinions of others, respecting and valuing diversity and using these skills to build and maintain healthy relationships of all kinds.

Learning Outcomes

Our intention is for all children to value learning through discussion of issues that are important, not only to society, but to them on a personal level. We develop children’s confidence to express their thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. Children will be able to make links between different areas of learning as they progress through a spiral curriculum that builds on learning from reception through to year 6. Children will have the confidence to explain their learning experiences coherently.

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.
