Welcome!

Parents are the major users of the website and so this section has been planned to be especially useful for you. There is a diary of events, including trips and assemblies, with any last minute changes highlighted. Further on you can access various official documents about the school including the parents'  handbook, the annual governors' report and the latest OFSTED inspection report.

The following policies and documents may be of particular interest to parents:

Anti-Bullying Policy, Appendix and Decision-making Tree (three separate documents)
Behaviour (consists of main document, plus Appendix A - Rights & Responsibilities;  Appendix B - Rewards & Sanctions, Appendix C - Class Management)
Complaints Policy and Procedure (February 2017)
Homework - KS2 Guide for Parents, KS2 Guide for Pupils, KS1 Guide
Promoting British Values
Special Educational Needs - reviewed July 2017.  The school's  "local offer" is available here.
Sex Education - what the children are taught, and when

With regard to the behaviour policy, parents may also find it helpful to look at the School Code of Conduct, as set out for pupils, which explains the Rights and Responsiblities for children, along with the Rewards and Sanctions used.

The Harlands PTA (formerly known as the Friends of Harlands) have their own area to keep you up to date with events, fundraising and what they are buying for the school.

The photograph below, taken at the Summer Fair, shows the full extent of the school site, and its woodland setting.  The playing field to the right of the picture belongs to Sussex Central College, but the school is able to use it extensively.  

Our school aims to...

* Encourage independence and a love of learning to enable children to reach their full potential;
* Enable children to understand and respect themselves and others;
* Provide a happy, safe and well-managed environment;
* Forge an open partnership between home and school;
* Encourage children to make a positive contribution to school life;
* Prepare children for the challenges and opportunities awaiting them.

The school rules are referred to as the School Code of Conduct with the one simple rule of "Respect".  Rights and responsibilities are used to break down and explain how we do this.

Please have a look at the first page of the Pupils section where the rights and responsiblities are explained, along with the rewards and sanctions used when something goes wrong.

Admission to Harlands Primary School

We are always delighted to show prospective pupils and their parents around Harlands, and to answer any questions they may have. For many parents, a visit is a useful way to get to know a school and can be helpful in deciding their preferences.

Now that we are an academy, admission arrangements have changed slightly. Admissions to the Reception classes will remain in the care of West Sussex (www.westsussex.gov.uk/admissions). However, admissions to Years 1-6 will be dealt with by Harlands directly. Please call the School Office (01444 450782) to check availability. Our Admissions Policy for  academic year 2017-2018 which takes account of possible expansion is available here.

Admission for Children starting School for the First Time

Parents are sent a leter in the autumn of the year before their child is due to start school.  This letter informs them of the name of their catchment school and how they can make their application online for a school place.  Parents have the right to express three preferences and may apply for any school, but should submit their application by 15 January.  Information on admission arrangements to the Reception classes is available at www.westsussex.gov.uk/admissions.

All local schools hold open events and welcome visits from prospective parents to help you decide which school you would like your child to attend.
