Student Welfare

The academy has a range of policies and procedures in place that ensure the welfare of all of our students. Several of these policies set out expectations about good behaviour.  This means everyone feels safe and can learn, and includes good learning behaviour around the academy, and in lessons, and also rules about how to communicate and behave appropriately towards other students and staff.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the welfare of your own son/daughter please contact the Principal

Contact – Ms Rachel Bowern
Email: info@harrisprimarykenthouse.org.uk
Telephone: 020-8402 7178

Reporting An Absence

Excellent attendance is the expectation at Harris Primary Academy Kent House. The expectation is that students attend every day unless they are unwell, in which case parents or carers are expected to contact the academy before 9.00am on each morning of absence. Our Attendance Officer, Miss Lisa Wakenshaw, can be contacted via the academy office.

To report an absence:

Contact – Academy Office
Email: info@harrisprimarykenthouse.org.uk
Telephone: 020-8402 7178

Holidays During Term Time

May we remind parents that holidays will not be authorised during term time, unless it is in extreme circumstances.

All requests must be put in writing and will be referred to the Principal. A 'Pupil Absence Request Form' is enclosed at the foot of this page to formally request time off during term time.

If parents do take their child on holiday during term time, without the authority of the academy, then they can face the possibility of a fine.

We fully appreciate that holidays are far cheaper in term time, but taking children out of school has a dramatic impact on the learning opportunities available to the children.

Late Arrival and Collection of Pupils

The morning register is taken at 8.45am; children are marked as late if they arrive in class after the register has been taken.

The school day finishes at 3.30pm. Parents should be at school to collect their child/ren at this time. Parents who are not here at 3.30pm when pupils are dismissed are late.

A record of late arrivals and pick-ups will be kept by office staff. A member of our Senior Leadership Team will monitor the information provided and follow up regular or persistent lateness.

Medical and First Aid Needs

Our Medical Needs & First Aid Lead oversees all the medical needs of children in the academy. Contact Miss Kimberley Ing via email: info@harrisprimaryacademykenthouse.org.uk  Telephone: 020-8402 7178
