Dear Parents and Carers,

I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your child to Harlow Green Community Primary School. We are very fortunate to have a new state of the art building, which is fully accessible to all. Harlow Green Community Primary School was built and opened in 2007 following the amalgamation of the Infant and Junior schools.

At Harlow Green we aim to create a happy, caring and supportive ethos in which every child is valued and given the opportunity to realise their potential. We have high academic, social, sporting, cultural and behavioural standards and are extremely proud of the achievements of our children.

We provide an exciting, stimulating environment with a culture of respect, where children begin to take responsibility for themselves, our community and the world in which we live. Children develop their self-confidence as learners and are encouraged to progress socially, emotionally and spiritually.

The family community of Harlow Green is central to our beliefs. Families and the wider community play an important role as co-educators and we encourage close links between home and school. We regard this partnership as a crucial element of enabling each child to make the most of the opportunities provided for them during their time at Harlow Green Community Primary School.

The staff and governors work closely with families in preparing our children for the future. It is important that children develop skills and attitudes that will help them to adapt to the changing world around them. We are proactive in developing children's aspirations for their futures and the resilience to achieve these. We seize opportunities for people to come and share their work experiences with children, and encourage children to be open-minded and ambitious about what they might do when they are older.

“There is no beginning or end to your dreams or plans. Life is a journey from moment to moment.”

I hope that you are able to use this site to access the information that you want about our school and wider community. If you need further help or have comments about ways in which we can improve the information, please use the contact us or guestbook section.

I would encourage visits to our school, so we can share and celebrate the wonderful work our children do.
