‘It takes a whole community to educate a child’

Welcome to Harbottle Church of England (Voluntary Aided) First School. We’ve a long name for our small school! Our vision is:

  • We hope that all who come into contact with our school will flourish and feel loved.
  • All will learn the Good News that Jesus proclaimed and have a desire to relate positively to others, the world, God and themselves.
  • Our innovative curriculum will equip children to make informed decisions throughout their lives.

We aim for high standards, and to provide a curriculum to suit the needs of every child. We want our pupils to find school stimulating and exciting through the wide range of activities both academic and social that we provide. Our staff are well qualified and experienced and we are constantly looking to improve our resources, equipment and teaching expertise to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.

We have a firm commitment to partnership with parents and the community and hope that you you will join us in the advancement of your child’s education.

Positive links between home and school make a significant contribution to the successful education of our children. It is therefore essential that you as parents feel part of the educational process, which takes place at the school and that you have confidence in this process. Such confidence results from the development of trust between parents, teachers and governors.

We place a strong emphasis on creating a caring Christian community where pupils will feel happy and secure and in which they have the opportunity to realise their full potential.

We look forward to working with you and your child.
