The following information will prove helpful to parents interested in Harlands. 

The Handbook, which gives lots of information on the day to day life at Harlands, is available to view on the Parents section of the website.

The latest OFSTED report (July 2017) and KS1 and KS2 results for 2016 are available below.

Further information on school policy can be accessed on the Governors section which also contains the statutory company information for Harlands Educational Trust.

Admission Arrangements

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 2016-2017 may be accessed here.

Admission Arrangements for Children Starting School for the First Time

Parents are sent a letter 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 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.

OFSTED Report

Harlands was visited by OFSTED inspectors in July 2017 and was rated GOOD.  To view their report, which comes in the form of a letter to the Headteacher, please click here.  The inspection prior to this was held in February 2013, when the school was also rated Good.

KS1 SATs Results 2017

This is the second year of the new testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2. These arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014. At the end of KS1 teachers are required to assess each child in the areas of reading, writing, maths and science. National Curriculum tests are used to support teachers’ judgements.
 

Attainment was  high in 2017. Harlands was above the national average in every subject. We are particularly pleased with the % pupils attaining GDS in Reading.  

 

The system of national curriculum levels has been removed and new measures are in place.

Children are now expected to achieve the “Expected Standard” (ES) for their year group.

Greater Depth (GDS) refers to working at greater depth within the expected standard.

KS2 SATS Results 2017

Children in Year 6 also took part in the new testing and assessment arrangements. The new curriculum provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS 2. The results of the SATs (tests) are reported using a scaled score where the highest score is 120 and the lowest is 80. A score of 100 represents reaching the expected standard. ASS represents Average Scaled Score.

In Writing and Science, the children are assessed by TA teacher assessment.

 

Year 6 children were assessed in reading, writing, grammar, punctuation, spelling, maths and science.

Our results are, once again extremely pleasing especially in both Reading and Maths at GDS. Harlands pupils performed well, above the local authority and national averages in all subjects.
