Home Learning Survey

Dear Parent and Carers,

We have an important survey about home learning which will help us to plan possible home learning ideas for the Summer as well as consider our future plans, especially in relation to online learning. It will also help us to know what home learning is useful to you in case of any further interruptions to full time learning in school.
Please complete the survey by 15th July.

Harmony Trust Position Regarding Wider Opening of Academies

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you will be aware the Prime Minister has asked all schools to begin to consider how they can safely achieve wider opening of schools from 1.6.20, if at that time the government feel it is safe to do so. Currently all school leaders are working closely with the health and safety experts within the Trust to carefully consider the guidance we have been given by the Department of Education, to identify what steps we need to take to minimise the risk to pupils, parents and staff to achieve this. Please be assured your child’s safety and that of our staff is of paramount importance to us and we are working through a wide range of measures to reduce every risk.

Thank you to those parents who have already completed our questionnaire regarding your view on sending your child back to school when it opens more widely. If you have not already done so we would be grateful if you could complete this, as it is assisting with our planning. We will be writing to you again tomorrow with more information on the trust position and the plans from each academy.

Reception Admissions September 2020

If you have applied for a place for your child to start in September 2020, you will have been notified by the Local Authority of your child’s allocation to a Harmony Trust Academy. 

Due to the current circumstances, in relation to Coronavirus, our schools are currently not operating in the traditional manner. However, we want to assure you that we will be in touch later in the Summer term, to ensure your child is registered, and you are fully informed of the next steps in your child’s educational journey. 

We look forward to welcoming you, and your child, into our school later this year. 

If you have any specific questions in the meantime, please complete the contact the Academy via email, and we will respond to your query as soon as possible.

We will start to access the scheme from Monday 20th April, following the Easter Break.  You will receive an email with an e-Code and instructions on how to download a voucher for your chosen supermarket.

The vouchers will equate to £15- per eligible child per week and we hope to process the first ones on or before Monday 20th and Monday 27th April and on a weekly basis thereafter until your child returns to school.

In order to make sure you can access your voucher please make sure we have the correct and latest email address, if you are unsure please email:

Giving the name of your child and your preferred email address and we can then make sure that you receive the activation email for your vouchers.

Please note there have been reports of families, not ours, receiving scam emails and text messages from fraudsters asking for banking details in order to provide access to FSM vouchers, we will never ask for your bank details in order to supply the vouchers if you receive such requests please delete them as they will be fraudulent.
