Gabby Logan, the BBC Sports Presenter, has been supporting our school community with an explanation of our school values. All of the children have been really inspired to hear her thoughts. Please watch her fantastic video below.

We have received this wonderful video from Amy Williams, the Olympic Gold Medal Skeleton. She talked about her incredible journey and how she needed to persevere to reach the very top! Perseverance is one of our very important school values.

Welcome to Harleston Church of England Primary Academy

We are a two-form entry primary school in Harleston, Norfolk and we are very proud of our school and the community we serve.

As part of the Harleston Federation we are a community that flourishes, through God's love, to live 'Life in All its Fullness'. John 10:10 and John 13:34.


We have key values that are central to everything that we do:

Hope - Hope inspires us: we believe that anything is possible; we have high aspirations, we are positive and enthusiastic and we want to make things better

Perseverance - Perseverance strengthens us: we are resilient; we work hard, we practise and we learn from our mistakes

Wisdom - Wisdom develops us: we value knowledge; we are independent learners who are responsible for ourselves; we accept challenges and celebrate achievement

Love - Love guides us: we are kind and supportive and we have a love of learning; we are good citizens, who play a positive role in our community

Respect - Respect shapes us: we value ourselves, each other and the world; we celebrate and understand difference

Faith - Faith supports us: we have belief in ourselves and God; we show trust and dedication


We hope that you enjoy looking at our website. If you would like to find out more about what makes our school a special place  then please contact the school office - or better still, arrange to pay us a visit. We would love you show you round.

Best wishes

Mark Carlyle
