Head's Message

Welcome to Harefield Primary School!

We are a vibrant school on the east side of Southampton serving a catchment area encompassing the edges of Bitterne and the whole of Harefield estate.

Harefield is a school where your child comes first. We seek to keep all children safe and happy, working together with parents and the community.

Our prime purpose is to ensure your child has the very best educational opportunities. We passionately believe that every child should have access to the best and make full use of their opportunity to achieve and exceed their potential.

We have a track record of achieving this with increasing success.

Harefield is an Ofsted graded ‘outstanding’ school. It is also a National Support School - meaning that staff here are used to support other schools in need. This adds to the effectiveness and success of our own school.

I tell every new entrant to the school that I expect 3 things:

  1. Good behaviour
  2. Respect
  3. Hard work

Every family’s co-operation has made Harefield a successful, happy school where children succeed and genuinely enjoy their day at school.

As our motto says: ‘Enjoy & achieve! Together we will succeed’
