Year 6 classes enjoyed a chilly outing to Crystal Palace Park to learn about the history of the Great Exhibition. Pupils kept warm by using bamboo to create the structure of the original building and learning all about the Victorian Empire. https://t.co/PAXKUAqeX7

We are on a remarkable journey at Harris Primary Academy Crystal Palace and it is with great pleasure that we share our Ofsted report with you. 

We are very proud of the rapid progress that we have made as a school, and are pleased that Ofsted has recognised it in their report. I am particularly glad that they have picked out our strong relationship with you (parents) and our success in helping all pupils achieve. We are excited to build on this feedback and go one better in our next inspection.

We are particularly pleased with the following quotes from the report:

"The Principal and the other senior leaders have secured good improvements since the academy opened. The quality of teaching has improved. Pupils say that lessons are mire interesting and that this helped to improve their behaviour."

"As a result, leaders have established a happy and supportive atmosphere which encourages pupils to enjoy academy life and achieve well."

“The teaching of literacy, reading and mathematics is good. Teachers have high expectations of what pupils should achieve.”

“Teaching motivates and inspires pupils. It helps them develop the skills needed to succeed in later life.”

“In national tests at the end of Year 6 in 2014, pupils’ attainment in mathematics and reading was above average. There is a similar picture of pupils working above expected standards in the current year.”

“The academy ensures that all groups of pupils do equally well. Disabled pupils or those who have special educational needs achieve well.”

“Pupils’ positive attitudes in lessons contribute to their good learning. They feel safe and behave well. They are considerate, polite and well-mannered.”

“Pupils who speak English as an additional language achieve well. They make good progress in learning spoken English, even if they have been in academy for only a short time. “

“The academy works well with parents. Most are extremely supportive of the academy. They are particularly pleased with the care shown for their children.”

Inspectors also praised the Harris Federation, saying “the Academy trust provides excellent support to other leaders. They relentlessly pursue excellence and do not accept second best.”

 

A few messages from stakeholders:
 

 “Congratulations to all children and staff on this strong report. The school is a very safe, caring and supportive place, and it is great that excellent improvements in teaching are leading to higher pupil achievement. Well done everyone.”

Sir Dan Moynihan, Chief Executive of the Harris Federation.


“Many congratulations on your excellent ‘Good’ Ofsted inspection. I was absolutely delighted to hear the news as I know how hard you and your team have been working in anticipation of the inspection. Please pass my sincere congratulations on to everybody, both staff and students, and thank them for their continued hard work.”

Lord Harris of Peckham
