Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Partnership with families

At HPAPL  we aim to establish a mutually supportive and respectful relationship with all our parents where trust and respect is at the heart of all we do.

We value the unique insight that parents can provide into their children’s learning and acknowledge that learning begins and continues in the home environment. By working in close partnership  we seek to nurture in the children the development of trust, respect, confidence, independence, self-esteem and the desire to learn.

We aim to keep parents and carers very well informed about their child’s learning, progress, well- being, behaviour and attendance. We work in partnership with families in order to help every pupil achieve their full potential.

Each term there are focused workshops to support parents’ understanding about our curriculum and strategies to support children at home. We run weekly parent workshops for parents of children in the Foundation Stage and open mornings for prospective parents. Details and dates are updated on our calendar of events.

Our parents are encouraged to share their views about academy life in a number of ways e.g. we undertake an annual survey, provide feedback forms at our currciculum workshops and regualrly meet with parents formally and informally across the year. We value this feedback and use it to support our continued improvement. Parents may also share their views by visiting http://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/

We also have a very dedicated team of  learning mentors who work very closely with our parents to:

  • provide pastoral support for pupils and families
  • support and monitor attendance and punctuality providing practical support for families  
  • meet with parents to discuss issues and problems, and running group sessions and workshops for parents at school;
  • advising parents on behaviour strategies and parenting skills;
  • liaising with relevant professionals and individuals, e.g. educational psychologists, the police and other social services;
  • helping with transition activities for parents and learners moving to secondary schools
