Welcome

Welcome from the Assistant Primaries Director

2_2_s_v2Welcome to the Harris Primary Academy Orpington website, which aims to give you a glimpse into life at our school and community. 

Our aim is to provide our pupils with a well-rounded and enjoyable education that ensures each child succeeds academically, physically and emotionally - preparing them for life in an ever-changing world.  We have identified six shared values, which we develop with the children throughout the academic year: Respect, Unity, Cooperation, Aspiration, Responsibility and Integrity. 

Our evolving curriculum has been designed to challenge and inspire the children; exposing them to a wide variety of exciting experiences including visits, events, sports, music and drama but also time to reflect and respond. As a result, our children develop excellent behaviour and social skills while they learn.

We have a list of '100 things' that we would like every child to have undertaken throughout their primary education.  This includes simple things like walking barefoot on a beach and flying a kite to visiting ten London landmarks and performing in a concert.  We hope these activities will ensure that the children are exposed to a well balanced, wide and rich curriculum - preparing them for their secondary education and future lives.

At Harris Primary Academy Orpington, we were pleased with our end of year outcomes. Please find out more by clicking here.

Our Academy has undergone an extensive programme of refurbishments, including updated classrooms, library expansion and a new Early Years area which provides our children with a large, safe and engaging outdoor setting.  Our environment is designed to ensure that all children can access provision and facilities which will support their learning.

We are extremely proud to be part of the Harris Federation which combines 44 primary, secondary and all-through academies across London. As part of a thriving community of schools we benefit from the ability to share, learn, support and challenge each other as we grow together.

If you would like to find out more, please do not hesitate to contact us.
