Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Learning at our Academy

At Harris Primary Academy, we believe that allowing children to think and work creatively develops self-confidence and builds up key learning skills (e.g. how to manage their own behaviour, their understanding of the learning process, their preferred learning style, to manage information and to learn from others.) Children who think creatively and independently are more likely to discover things for themselves, to be open to new ideas and to be motivated to work beyond lesson time to pursue topics of interest.

We believe these key skills and attitudes are best developed within a motivating cross-curricular thematic approach. Our aim is to create a rich and varied curriculum, meeting national requirements but is uniquely developed by us.

Teachers work hard to plan interesting and engaging learning that stimulates imagination. We maximise first hand and practical experiences using as many resources (objects, artefacts, people, places) as we can find. Depth is more important than breadth and work is blocked in subjects such as design technology and art to allow for maximum engagement.

In our curriculum, we aim to ensure that:

  • Children experience at least one enrichment experience per half term (trips or visitors).
  • Children will study key texts linked to their topics of work.
  • In Key Stages 1 and 2, specialist teachers enhance children’s learning in Art, Music and PE.
