Curriculum Intent

Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane Curriculum Intent

At its heart, our curriculum aims to foster and develop a can-do learning culture where children grow in confidence, try hard and take risks to achieve. 

Our exciting knowledge-based curriculum has high expectations, engaging learning, enrichment opportunities and strong moral values; it also expands their cultural capital. We want to grow children, who aim high; constantly strive to overcome the next challenge and never settle for average. We inspire our children to be confident about who they are and what they can achieve; world-changers who feel safe enough to embrace challenge, question what they see and take risks; deep-thinkers who are curious to learn; problem-solvers who push themselves beyond their comfort zone.

Ensuring Equality and Inclusion at Harris Primary Philip Lane

Harris Primary Philip Lane welcomes all children and values them as individuals, treating them equally and with respect. We believe that all children have the right to have their own needs incorporated into their curriculum in order to achieve success through the following approaches;

•         Provide an accessible environment, which is secure and safe, so that all our children can flourish.

•         We believe that all teachers are teachers of children with special educational needs and it is therefore a whole school responsibility to ensure that these children’s needs are addressed.

•         Through staff working together as a team, and in partnership with pupils and their parents and carers, we strive to ensure that our aims are met.

•         Ensure all staff are aware of anti-discriminatory practice, promoting and valuing equality and diversity.

•         Promote early identification of children with additional needs to ensure interventions are in place to address their needs.

•         Monitor the progress of all our children to ensure they are meeting their full potential.

•         Work with all external agencies and organisations.

•         Build relationships with other schools within our community

•         Ensure that our curriculum is fully inclusive and will not discriminate against the protected characteristics: age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.  

•         Inclusive teaching approach ensures that all children can access the learning using resources and strategies that they may need, including modified language, additional support or resource.

•         Follow the guidance in the SEN Code of Practice, Equalities Act 2014 and The Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014.
