Vision Statement


We are a warm, welcoming and inclusive school rooted in our rural community. Like the mustard seed we grew from tiny beginnings and our branches are now spread wide –providing support and taking our values beyond the school gates. All those in our community feel safe and nurtured - able to flourish and grow academically, spiritually, emotionally and physically to achieve their full God-given potential.


“Nurtured We flourish"


Statement of Curriculum Intent


Children are at the heart of Harrietsham Church of England Primary School. We are passionate about the development of the whole child so our curriculum, firmly rooted in our vision, is designed to enable each child to flourish.


Tailored to meet the diverse needs of our school community, the curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum as well as opportunities for personal development. The broad and balanced curriculum builds on the skills and understanding of our children from their various starting points. We provide a positive and stimulating work environment for all, where each pupil’s contribution is valued and children are encouraged to articulate their learning through a wide variety of media including written, spoken language, music and art. Teachers plan and deliver engaging lessons designed to challenge and deepen understanding. Pupils approach their learning with enthusiasm and interest.


Pupil wellbeing and good mental health are prioritised so that they become resilient, independent learners. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils and their understanding of British Values are woven through the curriculum and reflected upon in whole school worship. Children leave Harrietsham as confident individuals, well equipped to participate fully in the next stage of their education with an awareness of the wider world.


Our unique and ambitious curriculum is:

  • rooted in our Christian vision and values
  • underpinned by the National Curriculum
  • progressive with the skills clearly mapped
  • fun, active and challenging whilst making the most of our locality and the outdoors
  • mindful of diversity and inclusive of all children
  • nurturing allowing all children to flourish with appropriate levels of support and challenge
  • focussed on oracy with speaking and listening at its heart.
