In January 2015, Little Harrowden Primary School was inspected by Ofsted. The inspector commented:

Positive relationships, between pupils themselves and with staff, mean the school is a harmonious community where all pupils thrive academically and socially.

Pupils enjoy school and feel safe there. Their behaviour is good. They are keen to learn and work hard.

Children settle quickly when they start Reception, and feel confident and secure. They achieve well and enjoy learning.

Pupils make good progress whatever their circumstances or ability.

All leaders and managers, including governors, have ensured that teaching and achievement remain good...

Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs achieve particularly well because the provision for them is of high quality.

The new National Curriculum has been successfully introduced, while maintaining existing strengths in what is taught. Teachers prepare activities for pupils which greatly interest and enthuse them.

Provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is particularly strong. Pupils are given a secure understanding of positive values to support their lives in modern Britain.

The staff use the school’s assessment system well to keep a careful track of pupils’ progress. They step in quickly with extra help if any groups or individuals are not doing as well as they should.

Awesome Autumn



Autumn BallThe evenings are drawing in and the leaves on the trees are turning that brilliant burnished orange that signals Autumn is upon us. The Autumn Fete was a great success with FLHPS raising almost £2000! Thank you to all the volunteers and staff who made it possible. I would also like to thank Mr and Mrs Stanley, our next door neighbours, for donating the first prize in our raffle. Also thank you to ISE Fire and B and Q for their generosity in donating second and third prize. We really appreciate the help and support of our local community businesses.


Farm to Fork has inspired children in so many ways; from poetry to cookery, science to art. In fact Camille in Year 3 received a Headteacher's Award this week for being the next Mary Berry! Mrs Scrimshaw has been working with classes to produce some delicious dishes in our new farm to forkkitchen and in Year 1, the children have been learning the story of The Enormous Turnip. Next week, Year 3 and 4 will be off to Tesco to find out how food arrives on the shelves of supermarkets.


If you would like to find out more about our school, please come to our Open Day on Wednesday 14th October, with tours running at 9.15am and 1.30pm. No need to book just come along!
