Teaching & Learning
Curriculum Leader: Mr Rentall - Deputy Headteacher
Our aim is to provide our children with an engaging, captivating and inspiring curriculum that equips our students for the future.
Here at Harlesden Primary School, we believe in an evolving curriculum supported by the National Curriculum. In our school, we believe all children are unique and we celebrate and welcome their differences, within our diverse school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values with a vision to prepare them for life beyond primary school. We constantly provide enrichment opportunities to engage learning. We believe that child should be happy, valued and safe and have an investigative and curious mind. We aim to develop a thirst for new experiences and knowledge in every pupil. Our school values are: Ambition, Positivity, Respect, Independence and Resilience. We ensure that our values are threaded throughout our curriculum.
Community involvement is an integral part of our curriculum. We invite and encourage all stakeholders to be an active part of our school life. Together, we share experiences such as: assemblies, learning workshops, special events and cultural celebrations.
Our aim is for all children to leave Harlesden Primary School as active learners and participants in the community, where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
Core to our curriculum is the love for reading. At Harlesden Primary School we feel strongly that reading is at the core of all learning and is therefore at the core of our curriculum. At our school we have made reading in integral part of learning. Reading is one of our school priorities and is central to growing minds of our future generations.
