Message from the Headteacher

Welcome to Harpfield Primary Academy. We are a single form entry primary school from Nursery to Year 6. Our children come to us from Hartshill and surrounding areas. We are a small and welcoming academy who is part of the Creative Education Trust (CET).

At Harpfield, we believe in providing the best possible start to education for all of our children, irrespective of when they join us or their starting points. Our core values are:

• Celebrating diversity and being tolerant of others
• Being resilient, ambitious, determined and courageous
• Encouraging and celebrating creativity
• Being a collaborative learner and co-operating with others
• Showing respect and kindness to yourself and others

As a smaller academy we have the privilege of being able to form fantastic relationships with staff and children. We have a team of staff who are always willing to help each other and put children at the heart of all that we do. Our children are vibrant, diverse and we encourage their individuality. We take pride in the fact that we have as much to learn from our children as they do from us and that learning is a collaborative process. It is important to us as an academy to provide a broad and balanced curriculum. In this way, we provide our children with a wealth of experiences to find out where their strengths and interests lie.

We work closely with our parents through our dedicated home-school link worker and ensure that we are prompt in meeting the wider needs of families. Our children and families enjoy being a part of the community and are supportive. We use our School Council and pupil voice regularly to ensure that the children are central to the running of the school. Their voice is evident in many aspects of school life, including the curriculum.

The Harpfield family want, above all else, to ensure that our children leave us ready for their next stage of education and life. We aim to equip them with the skills, knowledge and resilience required by the ever-changing world they are growing up in. We want them to develop a secure sense of themselves and feel comfortable and proud of their achievements, whatever these may look like. As a team of staff, we realise how significant the role we play is and we thrive as our children do so.
