Dear Parents/Carers, please read the latest updates from The Trust and Mr Bell. 

URGENT : 21st MAY 2020 - Harmony Trust Position Regarding Wider Opening of Academies

Date: 21st May 2020 @ 3:09pm

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you will be aware the Prime Minister has asked all schools to begin to consider how they can safely achieve wider opening of schools from 1.6.20, if at that time the government feel it is safe to do so. Currently all school leaders are working closely with the health and safety experts within the Trust to carefully consider the guidance we have been given by the Department of Education, to identify what steps we need to take to minimise the risk to pupils, parents and staff to achieve this. Please be assured your child’s safety and that of our staff is of paramount importance to us and we are working through a wide range of measures to reduce every risk.

Thank you to those parents who have already completed our questionnaire regarding your view on sending your child back to school when it opens more widely. If you have not already done so we would be grateful if you could complete this, as it is assisting with our planning. We will be writing to you again tomorrow with more information on the trust position and the plans from each academy.

Welcome to our new website!

Date: 21st May 2020 @ 12:23pm

We are very excited and proud to announce the launch of our new website

Our main aim was to improve accessibility to offer key information and news for parents and carers. 

We also want the website to be a useful source of news, class news ranging from curriculum topics, announcements, terms dates, latest news and a calendar of events at the school.

We feel the new site offers a much improved experience for all users and we look forward to developing it further to suit everyone’s needs.

We hope that you find it useful and enjoy browsing it.  

During this period of uncertainty we aim to keep the website as your first point of call for all announcements and home learning activities.  Please keep yourself informed by checking the news section and the Class pages.
