Community Initiatives

Harpenden Academy’s aims and values have community cohesion at the heart of everything we do. We work in partnership with our community and other organisations to ensure we do all we can to promote and establish strong, respectful relationships that enhance the outcomes for children and their families.

The curriculum of our school aims to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, emotional and physical development of our pupils and of society and prepare our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

Our school has a thriving, cohesive community but it also has a vital part to play in building a more cohesive society.

Harpenden Academy has good links with other schools locally and within the Trust in order to give our pupils the opportunity to mix with and learn with, from and about those from different backgrounds.

Through our ethos and curriculum, we promote a common sense of identity and support diversity, showing pupils how different communities can be united by common experiences and values.
