Patron of reading
A Patron of Reading is a school’s special, designated children’s author with whom the school forms a personal attachment.
They will work with the school for a period of approximately three years to raise the profile of reading for pleasure with pupils, parents and staff.
North Harringay Primary school is a primary school for children between the ages of 3 and 11 years old. The school is in a large three storey Victorian building, with an additional Foundation Stage Block for Nursery and Reception children.
We are situated within a very diverse local population and our children are from a rich variety of cultures, languages, religions and ethnic groups. We consider this diversity to be an asset, which enriches the educational experiences we offer our children.
Head Teacher's Welcome
Welcome to North Harringay Primary, a friendly and inclusive learning community with the highest expectations and aspirations for all of our pupils. We want our children to enjoy their early years of education and to move on to secondary school full of confidence and enthusiasm for learning.
To help us to achieve this we focus on brilliant basics – ensuring the children learn the key skills they need to master the curriculum – combined with magical touches - a rich programme of educational visits, creative arts, sport and topical discussions. Our Question of the Week every Monday encourages the children and their families to debate key issues and philosophical conundrums. Our aim is for all of our children to be curious, critical, committed, creative and co-operative learners.
The best way to learn more about the school is to come and visit us. We are very proud of our school and visits are most welcome; just telephone our office to make an appointment.
