Harpur's Hill Primary School

Achieving Success Through Respect and Encouragement




Our Sunshine Class is designed to be a bridge between home and school; a place where children can feel safe and secure and develop their individual needs further.  We work very closely with the Nurture Group Network, and have been awarded the 'Marjorie Boxall Quality Mark' for excellence in Nurture in 2016 and again just recently in 2023. Our whole school is underpined by the principles of nurture, understanding that;


  • Children's learning is understood developmentally
  • The classroom offers a safe base
  • Nurture is important for the development of self-esteem
  • Language is understood as a vital means of communication
  • All behaviour is communication
  • Transitions are significant in the lives of children



The Sunshine Class are having a great school year. We’ve visited Somerset Forest and Christie Park. We took a trip down town – where we had a treasure hunt, enjoyed a hot chocolate and did some Christmas shopping! We hope to visit other forest parks in the new year.

We enjoy snack in the Sunshine Room every day. And love to bake and cook as well!

Play is one of our favourite times in school; and we have some lovely toys and games in our classroom, including Magsnaps, baby dolls, Lego, and several puppets!

With lots to do and much to learn, we won’t be bored!

How exciting it is to be in the Sunshine Class at Harpur's Hill School!
