Welcome by the Head of School

On behalf of the staff and children, welcome to Katherines Primary School.

We are a thriving Foundation School in a small estate in Harlow and a school that the staff, children and myself are incredibly proud of, especially in light of the journey that we are on to continually improve. We see every single day as a possibility not to be missed as a learning opportunity for everyone.

Please take the time to browse our website or even better come in and see the children in school from the bright faces and an eagerness to learn, to the wonderful work they are so proud of on all our displays.   Every child’s learning and development is as individual as they are and we work extremely hard to encourage and nurture every single one of our pupils to “Be all they can be”. Our children leave Katherines Primary as well rounded, confident and accomplished young people who are a credit to our school and ready for their next stage of education in their respective secondary schools.

Our website aims to give you a small window into our school life and the site is updated regularly to provide as much information as possible for our parent community. We hope that you enjoyed navigating your way around our website and you found what you are looking for.

If you have any queries or require any information please call our school office and we will be delighted to help you.


Miss Annette Graham
