COVID-19 and transition visits to secondary schools

Recent government guidance has made it clear that it will not be possible for year 6 pupils to visit secondary schools for transition visits before the summer holidays.  As an alternative we will be arranging virtual transition visits between your child’s primary school and Harrop Fold School towards the end of June/first week in July.

In addition to the virtual transition visits, a booklet containing transition activities will also be available for your child to complete to assist them in their smooth transition to Harrop Fold School during this half term as well as a summer activity pack that your child should complete before September.

In addition to these Salford Foundation have produced a special transition booklet for year 6 pupils that addresses the implications of COVID-19. This booklet leads pupils to accept where they are; find positives in the period of lockdown and address their feelings; and then to move forward to high school and think about what life might be like as a high school pupil.

Aspire Programme

We are proud to deliver outstanding character education at Harrop Fold School.

Our young people are expected to contribute to their school and to society:

  • To try things which they think they cannot do
  • To persist in the face of difficulty
  • To become resilient in overcoming obstacles
  • To manage themselves
  • To work independently on things which challenge them
  • To work with others and in teams
  • To be courageous and caring
  • To lead.

The Aspire Programme consistently promotes the extensive personal development of  all our students. We provide extensive opportunities for students to develop their talents and interests. Our core principles aim to provide an education which inspires, excites and prepare students for life beyond the school.


Student Leadership Team

The Student Council helps to shape improvement at Harrop Fold School. They help in the interview process for recruitment of new staff and offer a warm welcome to visitors to the school. They are a proactive voice for the whole student body of the school and ensure that the views of all students are represented and listened to by coordinating student voice for a wide range of school issues from teaching and learning to school dinners.

The Student Council also works alongside the school’s Parent and Guardians Engage Team (PAGE) to raise funds for specific and whole school projects.

Head Girl and Head Boy

The Head Boy and Girl of the school are key roles, working with prefects and providing role models for the rest of our student body. Duties of the Head Boy and Girl will consist of representing the school at local and national events as Harrop Fold School Ambassadors, making speeches at Open Evenings and Awards’ Events and they are an integral part of the induction process for the New Year 7s as they join the school in September. The Head Boy and Girl are key to all major events that the school is involved in such as Open Evenings and Parents’ Evening, taking parents and students on tours of the school and welcoming visitors to the school. The teams of prefects are our first port of call for school events, community projects, student mentoring and support.


Please see our Coronavirus page for information about where to seek support during the Coronavirus pandemic.

If you are a student experiencing or are in danger of neglect, abuse, radicalisation or are vulnerable to exploitation please see Mrs Gleeson or the School Nurse for assistance and advice as soon as possible – don’t suffer in silence.
