My name is Katie Pingree. I am the headteacher here at Hareclive E-ACT Academy.
I firmly believe that every child, no matter their starting point in life, can succeed and reach their potential. I understand that every child is different, and I will seek to encourage them to be themselves and to find what they’re really good at.
Every child that joins Hareclive will be given the best possible opportunities to learn. They will have support, guidance and care from role models who will motivate and inspire them to achieve whatever they want in life.
Teaching and learning is at the heart of everything we do here at Hareclive – though keeping children safe must always be our main priority. We take all aspects of safeguarding extremely seriously.
Hareclive is a two-form entry school from Reception to Year 6. We offer a breakfast club and a range of after school clubs. Our school is on a large site which includes fields, an astroturf football pitch, four playground spaces and onsite full size climbing wall.
We are fortunate enough to have an independent art studio, Room 13, situated onsite. It is run by the children, for the children, guided by our artists in residence. The children take place in a wide range of activities, including exhibitions, commissions, residencies, conference presentations and television programmes! The Hareclive studio is the world’s first purpose built Room 13 studio and winner of a RIBA award. For more information, see their website.
In 2019 we were awarded the highest grade of ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. They commented that our pupils “Are keen to engage in their learning…well-behaved…understand the importance of respect and tolerance…make rapid progress in all subjects…are proud of their work.”
- We expect and nurture the best behaviour and attitudes to education – as these are central to pupils achieving academic success.
- We have very high expectations of our learners- and in return we are committed to providing them with the very best environment in which to learn.
- Our values show that we place emphasis on individual achievement whilst building an awareness and understanding of others. The E-ACT values of ‘Thinking big’, ‘Showing team spirit’ and ‘Do the right thing’ encompass everything we do.
The academy is a caring community that values personal, social, moral and emotional development as well as academic and creative achievement.
As Hareclive is part of the E-ACT multi-academy trust, we are able to work with experts in their respective fields, share ideas and best practice and as a result continually develop and improve the standard of teaching and learning we offer our children.
We want our children to embrace opportunities to fulfil their potential and to become responsible citizens of the future.
Please get in touch with the school office if you would like to arrange a visit to our academy – we’d be proud to show you around!
