There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal.

Consultation for Hackwood Primary Academy , by Khunkhuna

Date: 9th May 2019 @ 12:47pm

Funding Agreement Consultation for Hackwood Primary Academy between The Secretary of State and The Harmony Trust.


The Harmony Trust is currently consulting on a proposal for the newly established Hackwood Farm free school, located in Mickleover in the north of Derby to enter into a funding agreement with the Secretary of State for it to open and join The Harmony Trust. This needs to be agreed before the school can open.


By law, The Harmony Trust must consult with and inform key stakeholders and the local community about its proposal, in line with Section 10 of the Academies Act 2010. This statutory consultation helps raise awareness of the Trust’s proposal and also seeks to obtain and build on feedback and suggestions it receives through the consultation process from other local schools, Derby City Council, members of the public and in particular, local residents.


Any comments, questions or feedback from the consultation should be forwarded to Jane Green at  The Harmony Trust will then report and present its findings and conclusions from the consultation to those that have responded, to the local community and to the Department for Education.

The Great Fire of London (Here at Village!), by Mr Jeffries

Date: 4th Apr 2019 @ 12:11pm

Learning in Year 2 was 'ON FIRE' today!

Children in our Year 2 classes have been learning about the Great Fire of London recently and today they have had an experience to remember!

The children had created some houses based on those that would have been found in medieval City of London in 1666.

Those houses were lined up in a mini street and then a fire was started! (All the children were at a safe distance away and we even had a fire extinguisher on hand!)

We could all see how quickly the fire spread and how it was helped by the winds.
