An Academic Head Start

We are lucky enough to be located close to several of the Harris Secondary Academies, including Harris Academy Bromley which is just a short walk away.  This means that specialist teachers often come into our Primary Academy and, as they get older, children can be taken regularly to use facilities such as science laboratories.

As well as engaging them in the excitement of the subject at hand, these experiences help prepare children for a successful transition to Secondary School.

 


Every Lesson is Creative

The aim of our teachers is always to deliver lessons that children enjoy and feel motivated by. We believe that all lessons should be creative, not just arts subjects.

We want our children to learn to be confident readers, writers and mathematicians. Our teachers make sure these areas as well as the rest of the National Curriculum are taught in ways that engage the natural sense of curiosity that children have.  

The result of this is that children become eager, confident pupils who understand the joy of learning and are well prepared for academic success.

 


High Standards in Every Classroom

With each week, term and year being so significant in a young child’s life, consistency is particularly important in their Primary education.  

As part of the Harris Federation, which has its own training school for teachers, our staff receive outstanding professional development to make sure that standards are consistently high in every classroom.

 


Children Treated as Individuals

We want children to retain their individuality and be treated and looked after in the right way for them.   

We welcome children of all abilities and want them to enjoy school and thrive.  For children with special needs, one of our first steps is to work with their parents and other specialists to create a plan for supporting them.  Our approach as a whole is reviewed with children’s classroom teachers, relevant specialists and parents every half term.
