Learning at our Academy

As learners 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. Our aim is to prepare all students as fully as possible for their secondary education so that they are ready to hit the ground running when they change school at age 11.

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 in teams,supported by subject specialists to develop themes each half term to teach other subjects (including history,geograohy,art and design) 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.

We spend time with all our children helping them to understand what they can achieve now as well as what they need to do to become even better.Teacher's marking focuses children on their next steps and encourages pupils to respond and to reflect on their learning. Teachers are expected to know exactly where the children in their class are in terms of achievement and the senior leaders set ambitious targets for all pupils at the start of each year.

Children with identified Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND) are assessed to be included on the Special Educational Needs Register. Provision for these children is then mapped to ensure that they are able to access the full range of curriculum opportunities to progress and succeed.

Wherever possible we bring in subject specialists to enhance children's learning.Currently subject specialists teach Physical Education, music and Mandarian and in some year groups, swimming.

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.
