Welcome from the Principal
Welcome to the Harris Primary Academy Crystal Palace website. We are a Primary Academy for local children. Our belief is that children thrive when they are consistently happy and safe at school.
We have high aspirations for our children and are committed to ensuring that everyone in our academy reaches their full potential and develops the skills to become a life-long learner.
Our aims and values underpin all of our policy and practice and we ensure that all staff, pupils and the wider community have a shared understanding of our vision. Everyone at our academy aspires to our ‘ACT’ vision where we are ‘Aspirational, Compassionate, Team-players’.
We aim to:
Ensure that all of our pupils leave our academy literate and numerate, fully equipped for secondary school.
Develop a learning community that inspires everyone to have high aspirations and develop a life-long love of learning;
Create a stimulating learning environment in which children and adults feel welcome and safe;
Ensure that equality of opportunity enables everyone to reach their full potential;
Support children to become confident, well-rounded individuals who recognize the part that they play in society;
Develop a culture of respect for different beliefs, religions and cultures and have a good understanding of British values and democracy;
Provide a rich and balanced curriculum that inspires children and encourages them to take control of their learning;
Encourage children to take care of their environment and recognize the part that they play in creating a positive learning environment;
Create an environment which nurtures the spiritual and moral development of every child and promotes respect for diversity;
Work with parents and the local community to ensure that the academy is a place of learning for all.
Our aim is to make sure that, from the first day of their education, our pupils have a truly happy experience of school. This means teaching them to become confident learners and making sure we nurture each child’s personality and character.
We are proud of our children at the Academy. With the help of our wonderful parent body they are taught to be kind, caring, self-assured and eager to learn. We hope that you find our website interesting and informative.
