At Harworth Church of England Academy we continue to maintain and strengthen our links with many groups and people within our local community. Here are a few examples of the many community events we attend and support.
Vintage Afternoon Tea
Year 6 sang Christmas carols and songs at the Town Hall to elderly residents of Harworth and Bircotes during their Vintage Afternoon Tea.
Year 5 and 6 pupils raised awareness of Polio by working alongside the Rotary Club to find out all about the disease and which countries it still exists in.
Harworth and Bircotes Library
Each class visits the library and they have the opportunity to become a member.
Year 6 pupils undertake a 10 week programme every year with the local DARE officer resulting in a graduation to present their work.
Police Community Officers
As part of our Speed Watch project the Year 6 pupils work alongside the local police to raise awareness of speeding motorists outside school. The children are taught how to use speed cameras and design questionnaires to ask motorists who are driving above the speed limit. Motorists then face the choice of paying the fine or attending an assembly in school based on keeping our children safe.
Families of pupils are welcome to attend our Coffee Mornings once a month - a chance to network and have a chat.

Year 2 have visited the Fire Station as a much valued link within the community. Whole school assemblies and learning sessions in classes have also taken place.
