Hello to our Harriers community, we hope you are safe and well. Remember to get in touch if you need our advice or help, especially with home learning. You can email us at

Every weekday during term-time we can provide pupils eligible for Pupil Premium with a free packed lunch. Just contact us at the above email address and we will have it waiting for you to collect from school.

Each day the staff are working on a rota basis to be in school to provide essential child care for key workers and vulnerable pupils. We thank all the staff for providing this service, which is only available where no other childcare arrangements can be made. Hopefully the rest of our pupils are accessing their learning packs at home and have had contact with class teachers via Seesaw or Tapestry. Again, if you have any issues, contact us using the email address above.

Teachers and TAs are working hard at home to provide further learning. We will be in touch soon!

If you can, join us at home in doing the Joe Wicks 9am workout on YouTube every week day.
