The Summer Reading Challenge, presented by The Reading Agency, is delivered in partnership with public libraries and funded by Arts Council England.

The Challenge encourages children aged 4 to 11 to enjoy the benefits of reading for pleasure over the summer holidays, providing lots of fun and enjoyment as well as helping to prevent the summer reading ‘dip’.

At Harlands we believe that every child is unique and learns best when they are feeling safe, secure and happy. We provide children with a range of opportunities to ensure they are all able to achieve to their fullest potential.

Our children are inspired to learn about the amazing world around them, encouraged to develop a love of learning and given confidence to embrace new challenges.

We support all of our children to become happy, independent, expressive, enthusiastic, sociable and creative individuals, instilling values that prepare them to become responsible citizens in society.

If you would like to look around please call the office to make an appointment.
