Welcome

I would like to extend a warm welcome to parents, children and visitors to both our school websites; Harlington Lower School and Sundon Lower School.

The schools converted to Academies in April 2013 and then formed one Multi-Academy Trust.  One Headteacher and one Governing Body serve both schools.  Both schools are also members of the Harlington Area School Trust (HAST), for more information about the trust click here.

The schools are working hard to ensure the viability and sustainability of both, seeking consistency, quality of provision, sharing expertise and strategically planning to meet the needs of all pupils now and in the foreseeable future.

Excellent relationships between staff and children ensure that all children enjoy school, are enthused and motivated by the curriculum and therefore make excellent progress.

We are proud of our schools.  If you wish to visit our schools, please telephone for an appointment.  Meanwhile, our websites will give you an insight into the life of our schools, the learning and the standards our children achieve.

Welcome

Welcome to the Harlington and Sundon Lower Schools website.  We hope that it gives you an insight into our schools and a snapshot of the facilities and activities that we offer.

The Board of Trustees is made up of parents, staff and members of our community. It’s main responsibilities are to determine the aims and overall running of the school, with a view to promoting high standards of educational attainment. This is best achieved as a partnership between the children, parents/carers and the entire school team.

The Trustees are actively involved in the strategic development and financial management of both schools, as required by law. However, we also see ourselves as mentors and friends to the school community.

The Trustees usually meet termly as do our committees – Finance and Audit, Premises and Health and Safety, Curriculum  and Personnel, ad hoc committees and working parties are also formed as necessary to look at particular issues that may arise. Each Trustee is linked to a school year group.

We encourage the participation of parents in supporting the school either by joining the Harlington FRIENDS, Sundon PTA, becoming a Trustee, volunteering for the Parent Focus Group or helping in class when you are able to.

I am immensely proud of both schools and the fantastic things that are achieved by those who belong to them and wish your child every happiness with us.

Mrs J Rayner
Chairperson
