Welcome to Harlands Primary School
Harlands is an excellent school with high academic standards and a reputation for giving children opportunities to develop into confident, accomplished and considerate young people with a love of learning.
We are very proud of the achievements of our children. Our school community works closely together to provide the very best for your child.
We cannot hope to tell you about our school in a few pages on a website, or answer all your questions, but we hope that what you see here will inspire you to visit us and see for yourself Harlands’ wonderful, nurturing learning environment.

Navigation around our site
Immediately below this section, there are direct links to the statutory documents that school's are required to publish under the Schools Information (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2012.
The four main sections of this website, which are accessed under the tabs above, are all aimed at slightly different audiences.
The staff area mainly contains information relevant to school recruitment.
The school life section contains a representative selection of pictures and reports of activities and trips that have taken place during the past year.
The pupil section has lots of information specifically aimed at children, whilst the parents section will hopefully answer most of the questions that adults are likely to ask, and also includes information on the Harlands PTA (formerly known as the Friends of Harlands) and our School Governors.
The School Information (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2012
Under these regulations, schools are required to publish certain information, and this section provides quick links to where that information may be obtained.

8 Pupil Premium - The limited amount of Pupil Premium (£1,869 in FY 2012/13) that the school receives is being spent on support through our Learning Mentor and a Forest Schools project . However, the project has not yet been running long enough for the school to be able to assess its impact on educational attainment. During FY 2013/14 it has also been used to support 1:1 daily reading recovery. The school is also providing booster classes in literacy and numeracy for designated pupils in KS2.
