Welcome to our website!

We are an innovative primary school where a welcoming, warm, safe and inspiring environment for our children and families is fostered. Our most recent Ofsted inspection recognised that:


'Staff and pupils are happy and work collaboratively together. Pupils demonstrate good learning behaviours.' Ofsted, June 2017


We aim to develop potential, promote independence and create opportunities for successful acquisition of knowledge and skills. We provide a broad and engaging curriculum which extends beyond the classroom with the view that it will encourage all our children to become inquisitive, confident, life-long learners.

We want our children to exceed expectations and attain the very best results they can; academically, creatively and personally.


Our school is part of the REAch2 (Raising Educational Achievement for Children) Academy Trust. This is a family of more than 50 primary academies who collaborate and share excellent practice in order to provide the very best education for all pupils.


We are an inclusive school where everyone is valued and we work hard to develop strong, long lasting and beneficial partnerships with our families, our local Harlow community as well as communities further afield.


Our website aims to give you a little taster of Water Lane Primary Academy and serves as a means to provide up to date information for parents, pupils and the community.


We hope you enjoy your visit!
