School is going to a bit different for our pupils when they return on the 2nd June 2020, so our Executive Principal Mr Pearson has made a video to explain some of the differences. Hopefully this will help explain some our plans and help those pupils and parents/carers who may be a bit nervous about coming back.

Term 6 Home Learning
We know how challenging home schooling is. The most important thing any parent can be doing right now is to reassure their child in these confusing, unsettling times. We are not setting new content for the children to learn, but returning to concepts that have already been taught in school. This will ensure that they can hit the ground running when we do return. Schools are not expecting parents and carers to home school your children with hours of lessons every day but we know you will be doing your very best to support your children’s learning and complete the work set. The government has published advice for parents about supporting learning during the Coronavirus school closures.

A Message from Mr Pearson
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.

Daily exercise

Also you can download a guide to home learning here: How to support home learning

Take care, stay safe.
