Get In Touch With Us


At Harrington Junior School we use a challenge curriculum approach where pupils are encouraged to ask questions to shape their learning. The aim is to foster proactive learning, a love of learning and a chance to link learning and skills in order to achieve success.

Our curriculum is broad and balanced, designed to give our pupils a twenty-first century education and equipping them with skills and attributes such as resilience and independence in order to allow them to grow into becoming active, positive citizens.


Our pupils have:

  • the opportunity to learn independently and with others
  • opportunities to take on different roles for learning
  • the right to participate in their learning and to ask questions to explore and guide their learning
  • time to apply skills in literacy, maths and IT to other subjects
  • the requirement to listen to others and to be respectful at all times
  • the right to be safe, healthy and valued as individuals
We believe our curriculum should be progressive to build upon the skills the children acquire through their learning. We use a creative challenge curriculum approach encouraging pupils to ask questions to expand their interest and understanding. We overtly link learning - across the year group and as pupils move throughout the school. This provides a broad, deep and relevant learning process.

Our key learning skills are:

  • communication
  • listening
  • teamwork and leadership
  • creativity
  • problem solving
  • presenting our learning
  • staying positive, aiming high
