Welcome to- test how this looks over two lines as titles can be quite long sometimes

I would like to welcome all of our children and families to our beautiful school which opened in January 2013. We are made up of sixteen classes with just under 500 children, and amalgamated on to one site in September 2014, here in Newhaven, East Sussex. We are all very proud of our beautiful building and look forward to showing you around! 

At Harbour Primary we have a clear vision for our school which unites staff, governors, families and children. We share a determination that all children will achieve the very best that they can in our welcoming, creative, inclusive community.

We have a short and simple school motto 'Always Be Curious' our ABC!  We expect all staff, parents and children to remember that at Harbour Primary we aim for everyone to ask questions, be keen and eager to learn, be inquisitive, be enquiring and to appreciate the wonder of discovering something new and different.
